View Full Version : Do we have a build thread on this bike?

05-22-2013, 6:04 AM
I've looked all over the place but I can't find a build thread for this one. Is there one?
I can't even find the original thread I found it in and it's a stylisitic inspiration for my current build.
Also, is it KZ or CB?

CB500 or 550 4cyl. I don't know who built it but try the CB thread?

Yeah, tried looking through that thread here at work, but for some reason it blocks out certain pic sites, even when logged in. Probably a firewall issue. Thanks.

What do you want to know about it?

From what I see...

It's a CB
Removed: Carbs/pipes/rear fender/seat

Frame mod: Rear frame rails cut off, solid struts with a saw tooth pattern put on.

Front end: New front rim probably off an earlier lower CC'd Honda like a CB100 /new tire

Tins: Rear tire now was front fender

Everything spray bombed black most likely rattle canned everything in place on the frame... except for Carbs/Pipes/Tank

Solo seat mounted, stock tank/carbs put back on, pipes wrapped and mounted

and... that's pretty much it, besides after market bars.

Lol, you pretty much nailed it. Was also curious what bars and if he went with a 21" wheel.
Looks like a GT550 tank.

Looks like it may be a 21 or close; some of the early Hondas had a small hub and were at or close to 21 inches. The bars look stock just pushed forward in the clamps to me...
