This time around I am going to assemble the bike before I get the frame paint to avoid any last minute surprises.
Engine, swingarm and rear shocks assembled.
Seat pan and tank mounted.
Tank is 1970 CR model, NOS but unpainted. Love the look of this tank, the 1970 model is the only one with filler to the right and the high profile. 1971 got the gas cap in the center, and 1969 tank has a lower and wider profile. Rumor has it that it was Bengt Åberg who criticized the tank with the filler to the right because it happened that he accidentally opened it with his right knee during a race.
