    Being helped, and paying it forward, is a great part of this forum.
    Yup, gotcha. Duly noted! I scanned the messages for parts and now I see the mix up. Anyway, thanks! Happy its almost done to the point I can ride it and finish the rest as I get to it. Of course, glad to help you too.

    Also, started working on the build sheet. It's a lot to summarize and a lot of peeps that helped along the way.

    Thanks Tom! Time to just ride it! I can finish the last 5% next time. One of these days I should make it down there. Michigan's roads are a bit boring compared to Tenn and the Carolinas. There are some good hidden gems in Ohio I hear.

    Thanks Sean! I do love how it turned out! Final pics due when I get a chance, weather permitting. Now that its running, I can find a proper background instead of in front of my house.

    I did a start up vid of me riding off into the sunset.

    https://youtu.be/JsOunMAFKuE

    If you care to stick around towards the end, I come back around. It's a bit slow to not totally piss off the neighbors. This and the CB-1 riding around are constant reminders that I'm the guy with the motorcycles.

    It is a bit hard to start lately. I think the SpeedCell has been abused a bit. I may consider the 8 cell version as it's the only bigger battery that will fit.

    I finally got this bird rideable! I finished up the harness and got it running again after sitting for most of the season. I had to reset the float heights as it was too low and fuel wasn't flowing in. Anyway, I got impatient and just tacked the old seat cover on the semi-finished seatpan. I just want to ride it! After a few teething problems, I get her mostly sorted enough to ride a few shakedown rides around the block. At first, she died due to a blown charging fuse and the SpeedCell died. 1 mile walk back. Next time it died was due to the tank not venting. It was missing the rubber vent seal under the cap. <<< ANYONE HAVE ONE???>> So, I steal it from the CB-1. Wow, it handles so nice and the Hord engine is so lovely. Being so light (low 300's I think) and bigger motor, it moves! I didn't get out of 2nd gear much around the block but compared to stock it has good feel, power wise and handling. I haven't taken it out on the open road yet since it's a bit late to insure and plate it. Next year tho! I'm happy for now just taking a few quick 2 mile loops around the neighborhood. It's like a mini road course.

    Except for the low tire pressure making the steering squirrely, it runs, steers and brakes great with no adjustments! All that time fidgetting and tinkering with it paid off. Sorry, no pics but the seat looks pretty crappy with the loose cover. Mostly this update is to say it's now rideable and I'm pretty happy with it.

    It's so little and skinny parked next to the CB-1. I'm so glad I got both now. With only one of them, I'd miss the other and vice versa.

    The last 5% is:
    1. Speedo drive. Harness is ready. I may get the TrailTech fork mount sensor and magnetic rotor bolt.
    2. getting a tag light to the side plate on the swingarm. Or just not ride it at night.
    3. upper 51mm fork clamps for the headlight bucket from SpeedMotoCo. Somehow, this got dropped and they didn't ship me 51mm clamps in exchange for the 53mm ones.
    4. finish up the seat cover. I may end up cutting the winglets that hug the tank. and mounting strategy. Just got busy and didn't finish it. it just sits on the tail but stays there ok.
    5. Mirror mounts. I stole these for the CB-1. i got a set of Veloce mirrors. Not sure which bike will get which mirrors. hmm choices, choices.
    6. make time for a build list complete with
    contributors.

    Another month or so of riding in Michigan. I can't wait to move out -- maybe Phoenix area.

    If you have any of the OEM T fittings, there are (2) 1/4" and (1) 5/16" nipples on one T fitting. Using these helps to fit both size fuel lines. Or in my case, the Tygon lines were stretchy enough to fit on the petcock.

    I use quick disconnects from Motion Pro to make pulling the tank easier. Using small 4" zip ties to anchor the lines on the fittings help eliminate leaks.

    I use 5/16 from the petcock to the fuel filter. Filter outlet is stepped so i run 1/4 to the mikuni and then 1/4 to the carbs.

    IIRC, the petcock, the fuel pump and the tee at the carburetors all fit better with 5/16". in fact the only stock connection that gives trouble is one side of the stock fuel filter. If you replace that with an aftermarket 5/16" OD filter, then everything will be one size.
    It's been a while since I've had to do anything to the fuel lines, so whatever size I used qas perfect... and I'm almost positive (but by memory alone), it was 5/16 ID.

    Thanks for checking my build. I always buy yellow Tygon. The last batch I ordered was this size: Tygon Fuel Line 1/4" ID X 3/8" OD

    Thanks! Like I said before, its a forum bike! It's been an awesome journey and I'm very grateful for all those that gave advice and generosity! I'll have a build sheet before it's done with all those that gave parts, sold parts and helped along the way.
