Marcello, your bike is Superb.!! Lots of passion and sweat emerge from these pictures...
For me too, the horrible green gaskets which should not beings.
You all know my allergy to these green gaskets... Angry Angry
However for me the seat foam would be good, it was not red everywhere..
I find that the aluminum engine covers are too dull, too mat... And it gives sadness for a whole..
The engines in 1969 were slightly more sparkle in my opinion to be able to attract buyers...
But maybe it's the rendering of pictures?
There are no washers on the screws of the stops of the swing arm...(just for the critic!!!) Cheesy Wink
You are not very far from the absolute truth... Wink Wink

Thanks Steve, Cris and Gerard, I thing that I'm crazy, but I already bought all the missing parts, the tacho and speedo cables with the correct ferrules, the correct period spark plug and airbox rubbers. The covers will be refinished shiny. The seat foam I think that's correct. Now I have to wait two months for the parts to post the final work. Someone can tell me the valve cover gasket color?

Marcello, for all engine covers, all joints are black... Originals Honda... And if we want to go further into the details, should also be that the dough has silicone used for assembling the two cranckase either color alu like the original in 1969... And of course, after. For that either completely invisible when it is finish.. Never of dough joined red or black for the Cranckase...
But this is only good advices to avoid unpleasant surprises when it is finish...

Marcelo,
It does not look like the top front brake is routed through the center of the triple tree, but it is really hard to tell from the photos.
Gorgeous bike! You have invested a lot of time and money to bring her back.
Nice work,
DW
