Man, that almost looks like a different bike with so little chrome. Those mirrors really change the look too. How are they compared to the stock lollypop style mirrors? Still fuzzy over 50 mph?

Maybe you should dechromify those fenders too. :twisted:

No seat rail either...

Is that a Mac header? Interested on how the mirrors work out. I'm having ideas on another 650.
Also not rear turn signals? I was ponderin as they are dual bulbs in the tail lite useing them for signals. Would require a converter box is all.

The new mirrors were a pain in the ass to get on there... Had to cut part of my grips off and hammer the things on (with some modifications to make sure they don't come out on the road, which they did once.) They're still fuzzy, but I like em better. They're so far out there I can use the right as a rearview mirror and the left as a lane shift mirror.

Yeah it is a MAC 4-1, and I still don't have the carbs adjusted right after the change. It runs fine at idle but when I get rolling and put some throttle on it runs rough and has very little power. I can only go about 70mph max.

I decided to cut the turn signals because I didn't have an alternative at the time. It's actually a tail light from a 1979 CB650, and I don't like how big it is. When I get her running clean I'll start the cosmetic stuff.

Upon closer inspection I see its a 79. Single bulb. When you change it out Ill take it from you as its the same lens as my 360.
Was it you I sent the petcock to?

No biggie. Wasnt worried about it or wouldnt have sent it out first. Wasnt in to good of shape anyway. Was just as much interested that it worked and your bike is running.
