Some progress. Disassembled fork top valves and stripped the old anodizing from the as they were gold and red going to send them out for anodizing clear and blue . The mono shock isn't finished yet as im going to do some more bracing.

Coming along really nice Rich!! Where did you get your seat from? Did you buy that directly from PMC in Japan? Or is there a supplier in the US. Thanks, Doug

The seat is from PMC japan through Z1 enterprise they sell for 178.00 which is a really good price for a complete seat. I think i paid 130.00 when i had my 750turbo recovered .

I've been looking at that seat for a while, it looks right at home on your bike, love it! Is it as comfortable as it is good looking? Don't say yes, that would only mean I would have to buy one. ;)

Les and Doug the seat looks great but as far as confort I really don't know. I have sat on the bike since installing it and it seems to be a little stiff but until i am able to take it for a spin i really won't know.

Thanks again everyone
