    Thanks man, I wasn't sure if the early CB750K fender was going to be overkill with the ally tail or not but it sure is leaner and more inline with the rest of the seat and tank.

    Thanks GI, lots of differences between forums if one gets around enough.
    I appreciate your assistance.

    Thanks Gents, sorry this build got stalled out. Work was busy, then the pandemic, furlough, more pandemic, a job change, more pandemic, and these days I've got plenty of time but no motivation.

    Last spring during lockdown I'd picked up a 1978 CB750K basketcase that took up most of the summer and has been monopolizing my thoughts.

    I'm hoping to get back to this 250, pretty much it just needs reassembly and a few parts. I'm debating whether or not I should get it on the road legally early in the season, and then tear it down for paint when temps warm up enough.

    I'll try to update this thread a little more often.

    Just reread and wanted to say that I don't want to imply there's been any let up on the covid front. And then there's the American political landscape...

    Not sure how any of this weighs in with you all but I'll bet you're all ready for summer and a great riding season after some months at home.

    I'm hoping to put some miles on myself this year, 250 or not.
