Nice!  Just a suggestion. Mead Speed in the UK make a TZ style fiberglass rear inner fender, that will keep debris away from your air filter  :twocents:

I made one out of an old GS front fender that I cut in half. I was worried about water getting thrown from the tire onto the airfilters

Just had My first illegal testride for 10km about
It shakes, and Its rough to ride on the hands 😅 handlebar feels to skinny

The gear shifter mecanism is not good to put it nicely. It shift like crap

Definately needs attention. Its a rear set and shifter from vintage smoke

But it was fun none the less to ride it. Man, Cant imagine giving it full throttle in All gears right now, Its gonna fly😁

See if you can find a 79 or later rd400 shift shaft and pawl mechanism,  it has more leverage than the older style! Cheers
