Hello friends

I am working on my first build. I have a deep love for the tank on the 78 cb750 and want to put it in my cb650.

I am looking for any advice for problems to look out for and hopefully solutions to match.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Off topic but what wheels are those? They look like 18 inchers on both ends. Very interested in having 18s on both ends of my bike. Let me know. :)

The rear tyre is obviously a Shinko 130/90-17. I see nothing else that would make me assume that these should be are not the stock 1981 standard wheels.

The Z-model has a 18" rear but these are the silver comstar rims. The stock Z-model front wheel is 19".

Reason: all right, the "reverse comstars" are the black ones :-)

USA Z/s got a 17 reverse comstar. Euro Z's got a 18 standard comstar.
Did you clean the tank out?!?!?!?!
