Request for measurements: side panel "hooks"
« on: June 14, 2022, 03:40:10 AM »
I am starting to "un-cafe" a 1975 CB400F and one of the unfortunate things done to the frame was to cut off 3 of the "hooks" that locate the top of the side panels. About to fabricate and weld on some new ones. I have one good reference on the left side but both are missing on the right. I would have assumed both sides are the same dimensions but some closeup pictures I could find on the web gave the appearance that the horizontal section is longer on the right? The left is 14.5mm - see picture for where I am measuring. Are the right-hand ones the same? Probably not crucial but I don't want to go to the effort only to find the the right hand cover is pinched by the frame rail and I don't have an actual side cover (yet) to reverse engineer it.

Many thanks!

What should it be on the right?

Yes, exactly what I needed! (picture files nicely labelled). Hopefully my frame will soon look as nice as yours...

Many thanks!
