I just pick this cb500 up for a pretty good price. I already got a longer set of tube coming for it cause it seriously need to get some more ground clearance then the tank is gonna go. Any opinions on what kinda tank to run would be appreciated. I also want to get my 21 rim laced to the hub up front. Then some new bars not sure what kind yet. I just want to give it a little Frisco bobber city hopper look and feel to it. The city hopper part needs to be functional as well since it will be hopping around the city. I also plan on a foot clutch and a real suicide shifter. Oh and the deer skin seat is gonna need some changing as well. Any way whata think?

You're right about the tank, it's too big for the bike. It's gotta go. Alien tank would look cool.

I'm thinking a smaller headlight too, but whatever floats yer boat. It's yours.

Check the classifieds on here, someone is selling one for $80.00 shipped. You can't beat that!

Well it's actually a mustang but it may still look good if it's small enough.
