In the mean time, while I wait patiently for my bike to get on the bench, my husband helped me clean the carburetors and Im working on getting the paint off the frame.

Well my husband has been busy in the garage the past couple months. Busy with customers snow blowers (4 of them) and a Honda Shadow 750 but not my CB750. Lately we have gotten it released from the jig and are doing some grinding of the welds and tabs. He brought it outside to get a pic without the garage clutter behind it. This week he is going to make it a roller by adding the front end and rear tire. This will allow him to figure out where the last two cross braces are going.

My pipes are 4 into 1 megaphone. They were kind of beat up and a little rusty so we decided to wrap them with black header wrap.

Sorry it's been a while, the guys have been working on everyones cars the past few months, last minute stuff before inspection, fixing gas leaks, mufflers, frames, motor mounts and everything else you can think of. Anyway my husband finished making and welding the hardtail and connected the backbone. It needs some final grinding and some filler, then will do a mock up.

We added 3" to the wishbone and then put the girder on to see how it lined up.

Then we adjusted the rake out about an extra 5 degrees to have the frame sit nice and even with the girder on.

Looks good. The backbone lines right up with the rear legs, now all we have to do is extend the upper legs and connect the dots.

What is going on here, now my husband is working on our friend Bear's Go-Kart, progress on my bike is not moving fast enough. I wanted it finished yesterday already.
WTF - Our buddy Mike finally got his damn bike of the bench, now he's putting his shit up there. He's working on rebuilding the transmission for his bike-it blew up again. In the mean time my husband cut the neck off my bike to go up four inches, then he'll figure out the rake for the girder.

We then made a framed jig to hold the bike square while we figure out where the hard tail needs to go. We are going to determine the rake and how much we need to stretch the wish bone.
Finally, with the help of my husband I am actually working on my chop. Our good friend Mike disappeared after he couldn't get his damn bike running. It is still in my garage though. I think its' been about six weeks since he's been over. Anyway, my husband cut the tail end of the frame off, we are working on grinding down all the unnecessary tabs.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!my husband finally got his bike off the table and put my frame up next. This frame will getting a hardtail added and the neck raked to keep it level and fit the girder. So hopefully there will be more updates to come soon.

While the guys have been messing around with their bikes I've been painting my engine and sanding my frame. I'm still working on the valve cover - I may send it out to get powder coated chrome.
