SIZE="5"]Well so far this is what Ive got going on.. Pics of what it was and how it stands now.. Workin on the tank, seat pan, and bars next.. So I'll post more as soon as I can.. The Idea for this bike is to build it with just the cost of the bike.. All other shit will be made by me and my buddy steve out of old metal we have lying around.. I paid 500 for the bike and thats it, check book is closed!

Looks good so far, haven't seen many of the Hondamatics with any work done whatsoever so this should be awesome.

akawaterman- that 400 is so sick. I really like the stance you would be sitting in the placement of those foot pegs. seems like it would be really cool to ride.

Bro --- the bike is so fun to ride -- the pegs are spot on and no foot controls --- here is a few more shots

That thing came out pretty f'n rad! I've been trying to figure out an easy hard-tail solution to this bike for my brother's CM400. Making one off of the swing-arm would save me some time.

Awesome bike! I actually got a hondamatic bobber well on its way...however the owner before me didn't know what the hell they were doing and let sit for a year...then i think someone got to it in their backyard and started taking random parts off...well anyways, my questions is about your solenoid set up. Do you have yours still on? And if so is it still connected to the change relay/change switch? Or did you manage someway to energize the solenoid without the change relay/switch?...any info would be much appreciated! cheers!---78 hondamatic 750

hey like your bike looks great have a question from what bike front forks you're using as i lengthening swing arm "4 and putting stiffer shock on a angle to lower bike at rear but at front i'm just sliding the triple tree down the fork it lowers but the shorter forks would look better as i don't really want to cut stock fork springs. let me know thanks
