Hondo's 1983 CB1000 Custom Rejuvination

My 1983 CB1000C started burning some oil last year, and with approx 50,000 miles on it, it's time that I went "IN" to fix a few things-

The plan-

- Remove the engine
- Degrease it
- remove the head and cylinder, inspect, clean up, lap seats
- At a minimum, replace the valve guide seals, base & head gaskets
- look the cam chain & tensioner over
- replace parts as needed
- clean up the frame, inspect all wiring
- remove the swingarm and service all bushings
- paint the engine before install

Day 1

The before shot -

Had to buy a floor jack for the job -

Down and dirty- getting those carbs out was a bitch -

The insulators between the head & carbs are as hard as nails, so they got ordered too.
