Turn the clock back rebuild

I'm resto-modding a one owner 50k miles cb500s that I bought last month for £475.
I'll try and upload imagery as I go http://pin.it/gBJ2Gb5

Looking good, like the silver swing arm.

Impressive start and +1 on the swing arm. Cool

Are you sticking with the original look and going with sympathetic upgrades like the Hagon's or going for more aggresive mod's?

What condition was it in before you started, any pics?

As bought from bristol, one owner http://pin.it/DQQsVjT I'm changing the tank and seat unit so this is when it gets tricky.
It's being done on a tight budget - but I couldn't resist the hagons. Basically If something works and it isn't ugly it stays, the tank has to go it's not a looker, the seat unit I'm going for something slightly different as I don't like anything that's out there for sale. The wheels and frame are still in original factory finish.
