First shakedown run imminent, or as soon as the salt disappears!
I know this is the CB Thread, but that Honda looks just like a BMW I put together 10 years ago. Got to say it looks good on the Honda also
Looked like a Ferrari, hell they sound like one at speed! I've wanted one since they came out myself, one day.
BEAUTIFUL BIKE BTW!!
I know it's a bad idea, but in a sick, twisted way, a great one. I've wanted, for a looong time, to build 2 identical and put them in a 23T bucket set side by side, with a 6 speed tranny and a quick change rear. Otherwise keep it old school.
The sound of that would be pure sex!!:
I'm glad I found this thread, It's inspirational, My 79 CB 750 F/S has been just sitting outside for a couple years and I just started looking for parts for it. When I start on it I'll have to do a build thread. I think it's going the Steve McQueen direction, as I like dirt roads. I CAN'T FRIGGIN' WAIT!!!
Glad you like the thread !
Would a V12 CBX work for you ?
How do i upload a picture , been so long i can't recall.
by the way, not easy to find an answer on site, finished a real little cutie of a CBR1000 i'd like to share, thanks RR
Picked up another. '73 CB 500, bought from the original owner. This bike was last plated in'82 and stored ever since. It turns over, has about half of the original tool kit, and the oil looks good. Paint is faded but has both sidecovers. I want to de-rust the tank, give it a good wash, and maybe de-rust the chrome.
And then this is in rebuild, a '76 CB70 chopper in a Santee frame.
So the paint is faded, oil looks good, and it turns over...WTF, .
I've got two bike projects ahead of that one. The chopper pictured, and a '95 Ninja ZX600R that is a replica of my second bike. the chopper is in pieces right now, as is the ninja which I thought would just be a simple motor and plastics swap. Turns out the new motor is a bolt in like it was advertised.
My 2002 954RR. As soon as she was mine I replace those god-awful grips, bar ends, and tank pad. New black grips, black bar ends, and black tank pad. Also added stomp grip tank grips, and Pilot Power 3s front and rear (180 in rear). Very fun bike, although I'm glad I didn't buy it for the gas mileage :eek1
Will try and get better pics up once the snow is gone.
New 2012 CBR125R
just picked up my first honda motorcycle. after 3 suzukis and 1 yamaha i felt ready for my childhood dream bike.
i am quite smitten
That exhaust looks like it might be better looking then the abomination on my CBR250.
This winter I worked on a friend's CBR F4i. The fuel tank was badly rusted inside, fuel pump was dead and fuel valve was all clogged up.
Few visits to the salvage yard for replacement fuel tank, fuel pump, injectors, fuel valve... and got it back in action pretty nicely..
With trips to the salvage yard, I even picked me up a spare bike for cheap:
Fun bikes these F4i's, very forgiving ride.. does the seat latch always fall apart on these bikes??
What is the deal with the vanishing fuel guage after fillups?
You got he yellow bike at a salvage yard?!?!?! How much $?
Just noticed this thread, here's what I got:
Wow, that's shiny! What do you use to get it like that? Cheers
Have a CB1100RB manufactured 09/1980 number 53 made of 112 for the Castrol Six hour race here in Australia
Can't move pic from desktop here
Will keep trying
Does anyone know if the forks from an xr650l fit an 82 750f? I think they're the same steeringhead bearings, I would think that would mean yes. Just wondering if someone knew, or knew where to find out, I haven't had much luck finding the info. Maybe my googlefoo sucks!
