finally finished my dirt bag 81 cb650 and had it displayed at a garage builders show.
this is my first bike and the first bike I have built from the ground up. still got some things to learn but I'm pretty happy with it.

Looks like a fun bike. Dig the racing stripe.
Looks like you can afford a better paint job and/or hard-tail treatment though.
Bet that lunchbox is worth more than the bike if it's OG.
The above meant in the best possible, bust your balls kinda way 8D

The bike was build on a shoe string budget using any what I had in my garage, I don't have a lot of fancy tools unfortunately. The "paint" is actually surface rust to give it that ratty look. The lunch box was $20 at an antique store. All the photos were taken at a local show where they were displaying garage built bikes.
