I rubbed a little of that silicone spray stuff on the rubber first.

It's like Christmas here today - my tool box arrived also, plus I finished this wooden riser thing that will make working on bikes a lot easier on the poor old bones Smile. The cat approves.

Hey, your bike is getting a cat scan!

(Groan Smile )

Toolbox in place. Made me realize I had the rectifier in the wrong place, so it's been moved as well.

Is that tab on the right side of the toolbox supposed to be involved in holding the CL100 right side cover?

Yep, the CL side covers had a flat projection that slipped behind that metal tab to keep the cover from swinging out to touch the muffler. Since you will be cutting down the CB cover to fit, maybe you could experiment with leaving a "tongue" of plastic extending down, and use a heat gun to soften and bend it to engage the tool box.

I've discovered that my exhaust pipe is much worse shape than I thought - rusted all the way through in one spot under the heat shield clamp! So since that's gotta be replaced, I'm thinking why not go with a CB exhaust instead, and leave the new side cover intact?

Thoughts?

I'm pretty sure the CB brake pedal is different since it curves down below the header pipe so you would probably also need to change that. But otherwise the CB exhaust should fit. Another option is to have a patch welded onto your rusted out pipe.

EDIT: Oh, and I suspect the CB kick starter is bent out farther to clear the muffler.

Thanks - wondered about the brake lever, hadn't thought about the kick starter.

The more I look at it, it appears as though only the outer pipe is rusted all the way through and the inner is intact. Perhaps I'll try brazing on a patch - the entire repair would be covered up by the heat shield after-all.

I think I've come to my senses & decided not to toss another couple hundred bucks at this thing Smile. The reason the pipe is so badly rusted at that one spot is because it's had a fiber band (no doubt soaked with water a lot of the time) wrapped around it for 40+ years. The new plan is to weld a bracket to the pipe and attach the heat shield directly to that (eliminating the other half of the clamp and the wet sponge material). Then VHT paint & call it a day.

Well alright, I think the only part I'm missing now is a horn, and that's supposed to be here soon. It's supposed to be 50 & sunny tomorrow so I'm planning one more ride for the year. I'll be able to tell if the repair of the exhaust pipe was successful from that (it was previously spitting a little crud on the crankcase near the rusted spot).

Planned work over the winter includes fork seals and just minimal work on the engine (cleaning the centrifugal oil filter and seeing what's up with the cam chain tensioner). Other than that, painting the side covers and polishing metal. When's summer again?

Well it was too f'n cold for a long ride today (45*), but I did cruise over to an auto parts store and brought out several cans of dark blue metallic Dupli-Color to compare with the gas tank. Picked the best match and went back home. I decided to retain just the "100" of the side cover badges, and drilled new holes to hold that part on, and filled up the old holes with Bondo. Sanding and painting tomorrow, as time allows.

This is about 6 coats - pretty close match. Very light sanding & clear coat tomorrow.

The blue on the covers turned out to be a little bit darker than the tank, but I'm still pleased over-all.
