Thanks everyone. “Understated cafe style”, if I would have had a goal at the start of the project(s), this would have been a nice statement to put it. I like that, thanks for the compliment.

Update of the "yellow one". Seat done, headlight done. Basically just the engine left to do and button up.

Finally some progress on the yellow 350f, after I broke two oil rings while trying to install the cylinders, I had to order new rings from cruzinimage and stuff like that sets you back a couple of weeks.
This time I was more careful and the engine is now coming together.

Those 400 headers look so sexy  ;D

Not finished, but it's getting there:

Updates!

The black CB466f is smoke free since I changed the headgasket. I'm still treating here carefully as I will be doing a head re-torque after 500km of gentle riding.

Synched the carbs, and she's running like a sewing machine. Albeit a noisy one, with those 4 open pipes.

[ Guests cannot view attachments ]

The yellow one is also getting close to being road-worthy. I had 2 test rides now, leading to altering the carbs (needle 1 position lower, I had it at max rich).
I also found that I have no battery charging during riding, there is no power to the white wire out of the reg-rec, which I guess means that my generator is not magnetized and therefore not working at all. It's a cheap reg-rec combo, I figure it's a DOA.

I also ordered a new silencer, so visually the bike is going to be finished soon.

Did a little test: I had another old fashioned regulator laying around. So I unplugged the black and white from the new R/R combo, but let the 5 pin connector installed (using the R/R combo purely as a rectifier) and connected the old regulator.

Presto! I have charging power now. So the R/R combo must have some problem inside with the rectifier.
Bummer.

Is there any harm in riding with a R/R combo with the regulator unplugged, and using an old fashioned regulator instead?
I have no idea of the inner workings of a combined R/R.

As long as the loose terminals are insulated just in case it decides to play silly it should be ok

Got the new silencer installed  8)
A silencer that actually silences! Unbelievable for <40 GBP (https://www.classicbikeshop.co.uk/short-daytona-36mm-44mm.html)

That means that this project is visually finished. Only some technical stuff to fix or improve:

- Carb jetting (main 90 now, seems rich) and need a synch.
- oil leak from the left side of the engine. Looks to be the O-ring of the oil gallery plug.
- Drive chain
- Longer jiffy (anyone know a plug-and-play option that is 1-2 inch longer?
- replace the R/R unit

Nice.

It's not really my style of bike, but I can still appreciate what's been done. The modern front end sits well and doesn't look out of place, which they often can do.
The swoopy 400-4 pipes and a short mega suit the style too.

It's clean, simple, and looks like a flat tracker.

Job done, and done well
