An update on the project:

Had a delay on the paint, had a weird reaction with one of the final coats of white that caused the paint to wrinkle. Even after letting it cure and sanding it down, any paint would cause the same reaction. Ended up sanding the tank to metal, and upper and tail to plastic. Whatever it was managed to get into the plastic as well, because as soon as primer hit the tail it reacted again. The tank took primer no problem and is salvageable. I have a new upper and tail ordered and just waiting on them to get here. (As an aside, I hate the fact that most tails available for this model have the holes in them for the European grab handle.)

While riding the bike before I stripped it down I noticed an ugly, but relatively quiet, rattling. Turns out a common problem for the early CBRs is their automatic cam chain tensioners stick and don't keep tension. Fortunately, it's an easy fix with the tank off.

Had to take the wheel off to get the front fender off and found no grease on the axle. That will change when it goes back on. Brakes look good, but I will probably upgrade the pads. And am doing an oil change, even though it was recently done, to get rid of the K&N oil filter and replace it with a good HiFlo one.

Plus, started getting in other goodies for it, including new OEM levers, ProGrip grips, new throttle tube, new flush mount front turn signals, new clip ons, New double bubble windshield, and complete fairing bolt set (since son-in-law lost all the others). New short stalk rear signals are on their way.

Still planning on eventually doing the Nicky tribute bike, but it will probably be a winter project when I can afford to get all the correct bodywork. For now just trying to get it cleaned up and back on the street with a decent paint job.

So here's a teaser of the temporary paint scheme. Good news is that the tank has taken primer and all coats of white with zero reaction.

Progress being made. Fender and upper fairing completely installed. New windshield installed. New front and rear turn signals installed and wired. Starting to look like a bike again. Next up, unstick the stupid auto cam chain adjuster, install tank, do oil change to get rid of K&N oil filter.

Still waiting on the new tail to show up. It was a pain finding a brand new one without the holes for the grab handle than Euro F4s had.
