Thank you Rob, that means a lot coming from you. I have a great amount of respect for you as I have read so many of your posts of insight and expertise. Webby was right!

It is a fun project and a fine education. This will be the second restoration, the first being a 1962 Honda, in which I have used your method of zinc plating the hardware. I was thoroughly impressed with how simple the process was and how well the parts turn out. Thanks for posting all of your great ideas and techniques, they are extremely helpful.

Thanks for the kind words. But I truly believe these forums are all about sharing, helping and preventing others from making the same mistakes we make. That zinc plating process is not mine by a long shot. I found it on a Honda 305 site and a guy there name Wilf, who is a science teacher in the Great White North if I remember right was who initially posted it there and was very helpful with tips as I started to do my own plating.

Keep up the good work and progress on your bike. I'll be watching from here on out.
