    Thank you Mr. Kirrbby. I was uncertain due to my 71 having the 2" plate without the screws. A parts web site I was on showed the plate without the screw to be the correct plate for this bike. Being confused at this point in time, I didn't want to order the wrong plate incase this plate I have...

    Is this flywheel plate the correct plate for this year bike? I guess my real question is, does this plate have the screw holes or the type without the screw hole. Thanks. I've been reading on here about the Honda silver paint for these cases and or the wheels. A lot of discussion on this...

    Thanks Mr.MartinM54 The tape is in fact a vinyl type tape that I read was supposed to be on these spring adaptors if that is the correct name I should be using for this particular part. Also is there any history as to when and or why Honda placed the little plugs on the screw holes on the frame...

    Here's another question / picture. Does this look like the original tape for these fork spring adaptors. Also these little body plugs I found in the right side frame. How rare are these to still find in the bike?

    Yes Sir, I would love to leave it with the original paint on it, but I'll add a pic for why it really needs a paint job. I'm all about trying to retain originality on anything I have but in this case its best to give her a new fresh look.

    Here's a few pictures of the plate after removal and the tack/nail as it may be called and the bike with the plate still on the bike for a reference. I think I got lucky with the removal. BTW, I used a razor blade to get under the plate and the one tack. Stand by for the pictures.

    Thank you Mr. Kirrbby, Thought so but I like to confirm things before I start to tear things up. LOL So is it safe to say I can or could install the bearing races with a bearing press and or a correct sized socket and press it into place? I don't want to push them in to too far. Is that correct...

    So while I'm right there working on the steering neck on the bike. The next question is can I pop out or knock out the steering ball bearing race (top and bottom) with a some sort of tool? I have a variety of punches and chisels I can use. The bearing race looks pretty good. Not sure if I really...

    Oh Yea. No doubt I will credit you and your spinner/filter thread with all the credit it deserves. Here's the way I see it. After reading and studying your tutorial on how to check this item gave me a set of balls to jump in and do it. Much appreciated. I managed to get the data plate off the...

    Yes, thank you Sir for the information. You pretty much convinced me to go with the bead blasting. As you pointed out. There's a lot of seams for the paint stripper gel to get into and be a pain to get out. The tack pins on the vin plate. What's a good way to pull those out with out tearing up...

    Gold Candy original paint. Will paint stripper create any problem's on the frame, tree and swing arms? I've used a lot of stripper on cars in the past. Post cleaning the parts prior to painting is the key. Any problem on these bikes as opposed to bead blasting or sanding? Are or can the...
