New to the ChopCult, I have been on the JJournal for years and I have lots of jap bikes / chops… and this seems like the place to share them.
Attached is my current ride, she is a solid runner - 1975 Honda CB500t. I picked up the bike for real cheap, chopped the frame, removed the starter and plugged the hole, made the bars and exhaust, made everything…

wow, thats is a sharp looking ride

Thanks, I am thinking of re-doing the tank, and maybe diff leather on the seat (first seat I ever made-pan and leather work).
The picture attached is pretty crappy, if anyone wants a better shot let me know.

I'd like to see those Handlebars and see what you're running for a tail light.

Here is a old shot of the tail light and bars. The lens in the tail light is actually glass, i thought it was a cool find. I also pulled the starter out and made it into a tool bad instead. ill post those photos next time im in the garage. I took this pis about 3 years ago so a few things have changed since

this is where the starter use to be, fits 2 plugs, fuzes and all the tool needed to do anything on the bike.

Those bares look wicked! I really like the hidden exhaust too

Im thinking of moving the tail light to the top of the rear fender and mounting the plate there as well. anybody have a similar set up?I would love to see what you guys are running - fender mounted licence plate / tail light set up.

The bike looks killer! Where did you get the finned valve covers?

the fined valve covers are stock on the 500's.
