I'm in to watch the build. I raced an HRC 628 in the California desert for many years. Great old girl; one of my all time favorite bikes. The key to her successes? Keep her cool and she will run like the wind. Also watch out for the subframe. It will crack with the extra weight of a rear tank. Make sure you add some gussets to strengthen the sub mounts to the main frame. I modified mine to be able to unbolt the subframe for easier access to servicing the shock.
Good luck on your project. -Jerry
