What about the removable frame, the one you have to remove to install the engine? Aren't you going to powder coat it?

Some of the rubber grommets can still be found. But I can't find the fuel pump holder. Only with a fuel pump attached to it and they are expensive. Try to convince one of those ebay guys to sell you just the rubber holder.
vt750 fuel pump | eBay
I do plan on powder coating the sub frame, I was just trying to find more stuff to powder coat I have a big oven and can't see running it for a couple of parts, I think my fuel pump grommet is ok its some of the other ones that are rotten there is 2 relays back to back that grommet crumbled in my hands on both bikes

do not bother with the grommet. Mine did the same thing. I just used a twist tie to hold them together and tuck it nicely where they supposed to be - no problem at all.

congrats.....looks nice. Well you can sell the honda to Luis as he is looking for another project now. He will take care of the old lady for you. Or you can restore her into the running order and have 2 bikes. There is never too many toys a guy can have

PS: When i say the "old lady" I mean the bike.
