Great story! Thanks for sharing that.

Not a Honda but this might remnd you!

We spent a week in Norway in June but we didn't hear any Police Sirens!

Thanks - It's been really interesting. It has prompted me to build a white CB77. I have the frame and a close matching engine top case. Now I have to locate the other bits!

My great friend, Les, who has studiously learned the art of metal polishing, has a tame chrome plater in the City of Birmingham, UK.

He gets a one-day turnaround. If he takes items in for stripping at 9am, they are ready for collection at 4pm the same day.

The parts get taken home and polished in his workshop using a setup he designed and built himself using several grades of polishing wheels. The parts go back to the platers and get plated with copper, nickel and chrome in the space of one day.

Here is the most recent set of parts.

It's always exciting to unwrap all of the shiny parts but, yesterday, the most exciting parts were these super-rare cable adjusters for the CYP77.

Wow, that is awesome in finish and turnaround time. Wish we had someone like that close to me.
Thanks.
