80-83 years had 39mm fork tubes. Five posts and you owe us pics.
Whatever I suggest here should be given ample time for a moderator to delicately correct. I apologize in advance.

Its a 1983 Honda GL100 Aspencade. I actually I did this build last year while I was in Argentina, So I do not really have the build pictures you might be looking for. However, now that I am back in the U.S. I am planning the following:

1. Black clip-on handle bar and lower the front.
2. Take the seat off and go with a triumph speed triple.
3. Remove rear air shocks and lower the back end.
4. Remove the front lights and either go with a round single OR the MT-03 Headlight.
5. Clean up the turn signals and brake lights and go to LED's.
6. Some how get RID of that digital cluster and go analog.
7. Come up with an exhaust system that either does 4 into 1 exiting the right side just in front of the wheel with a
rectangular exhaust tip OR just have 2 rectangular tips on either side.

Comments and bashing are always welcome......

Nice start! We usually don't bash (much), but I will agree with getting rid of that dash cluster! :drunk :drunk :drunk There was a build thread just recently on stripping an Aspy, including going with stock analog gauges, IIRC. Enjoy the ride!

Today I dropped the nose. I had an issue with putting the clip-ons on with the original mounting portion creating an issue, so I flipped the existing bars until I come up with a solution.
