Hahaha, Was really hoping no one noticed that. I'm used to Honda engines

I have a cb650 with a blown head gasket that I don't feel like replacing, so I don't really have anything to ride this winter. I was super bummed about that and have been looking for cheap running K bikes to ride in the mean time. Guess I'll suck it up and get this restoration done as quick as I can.
The frame is already off for powder coat and the speed/tach was sent off to Wirespokes yesterday. As soon as the frame is back, I'll drop the engine off for blasting and a Valve job. Along with the engine I'll have the other cast parts blasted and the wheels re-laced.
Already have a stainless bolt kit, new wire harness, new tank (the larger touring one) and a few other things.
Ordering a new seat, electronic ignition, 450 watt charging system, progressive springs and some other bits.
Anyone have a good suggestion for some decent rear shock?
