Hi All,

Very glad to see the forum back!  Here are a couple of shots of my '85 650; it has about 67K miles on it now and runs pretty much better-than-ever after a top-end rebuild a couple of years ago.




best wishes,
David

Looks great! What're you using for a headlight there? Was it pretty much bolt on or did it require some fitting? If so, how'd you go about it?

Thanks!  The round headlight is a bolt-on, from a 70s CB750, but it did require some serious trimming of the lower portion of the headlight shell to avoid interference with the fuse panel, etc.

OK, thanks! That's kinda what I wondered...

I was thinking about doing the round headlight thing with my own 650. I really prefer the look of a round headlight over a square one, and I also have a spare from an old CB750.
I'm going to wait and see how well the bike works first, to make sure I'm keeping it.
