First steps

Removed rear fender, inner fender and grip bar this afternoon. Cleaned battery cables and terminals on solenoid. Will hopefully get a chance tomorrow to try and spin it over. Temporarily removed the rear shocks to get an idea of the stance. I think maybe an inch or two above it sitting straight on the tire. A stock replacement tank is going to look great. Placed a bid on a coil pack today so hopefully I'll know about it in a couple of days.

The adventure begins!

Picked up an 84 Honda Nighthawk 700 SC. My plans are to make a modified bobber out of it. I've got some pictures but I'll post more later. I've found a few bikes out there that I like the looks and I'll try to post some of them to show the style/theme I'm looking for.
