    Picked up my CB550 a few years ago and rode it around for almost 2 years then I had enough money to buy a cool Sportster. In August of this year a lady pulled out in front of me and I wrecked the sporty. Although I kinda regret not buying it back from the insurance company, they gave me plenty of money for the bike and more.

    I originally planned to get an old road king and make it a hard tail with the money i got for the sporty. But, recently I got smart and remembered that I have a sweet CB550 in my garage. It has a few small issues like the brakes needing done and a dent in the tank which I planned to fix at some point in time. But, other than that it does everything right. I have the money to get everything else right on the bike and clean it up really nice; only thing left would be to hard tail it so WHY NOT?! Also, i'm a photographer so if i get this it will incline me to make a huge build thread out of it which everyone loves!

    Will this do as an entry?? Not all in one piece on the picture as I had to strip it to get it in the back of the car. Bought it for my lady, a '79 KZ750 twin. Planning on hardtail, single top tube, nice spoked rims, Hopefully it'll turn out classy. I know I'm a long way away but I'll help with the shipping

    Bought this 1980 XS400 for my dad last year with plans to build it come winter but then I bought another 400 for my wife and his bike got put on the back-burner. Her's is finished so December is likely when we'd get started on his and a nice Voodoo would fit perfect.

    Would you consider a general entry? This bike is the first one I ever build, a 1979 CB650 and I would have loved a true hard tail on her! I have another partial 81' CB650 sitting here at my place that could be an option OR if picked I could buy a rescue donor bike at that time and document the whole thing?? Anything but my current 86 XV750 will work lol

ID:	65222 Been putting around on this guy since last October, haven't really changed much but bought quite a few parts to make it my own. Haven't installed anything yet cause I was debating if I'd hardtail it or not!

    My beautiful 73 CB750 NEEDS a hardtail.... forget about wanting one. In fact, if I win, I'll donate a classic CB750 rigid frame from the 70's in exchange and the gift can keep on giving....

    I have to replace my 99 shadow vlx hack job that the guy before me did to it. He cut it and removed the Monostrut in the center and then welded it together. Bike seems to be bent/pinched in the middle. I have to replace the whole rear end because of how horrible it is. He even welded fender supports on the Frame and it had welds on top of welds almost an inch high trying to get the fender support the stay on the frame. The whole rear has to be scraped. Thank u for considering me.

    I've had my KZ1000P for about 6 years. On July 1st I was on my way to work and a car pulled out I front of me. I hit the car and got launched. Lucky for me I only ended up with a broken foot, dislocated and fractured shoulder, and minor road rash. My trusty "Pighog" ended up being totaled with a minor amount of frame damage for as hard as I hit. Now I'm in the process of repairing it what I've always wanted a 70's style chopper. My Instagram is dumptruck53. If you want to follow the progress so far look up #youcantkillapighog

    Thanks for the opportunity; very generous on everyones part.

    My instagram is Boxcar_customs

    Have been building bikes for fun for 5 or 6 years

    This is a '78 XS650 I have been working on. Finally build a frame jig which has expanded my horizons tremendously.

    I initially bent up some tubing and drop-seated the rear to stick with shocks, however after raising and stretching the front end, I think that a hardtail would make the stance much better.

    1981 XS650 Special. I'm in the process of stripping her down and cleaning every part. The cylinders went to the machine shop today with new JE pistons making it 700cc. Next week will be a rephased crank and cam from Hughs Handbuilt. I've been looking at hardtail frames for the past year and trying to decide. I love the looped hardtails but I ultimately landed on the VV MK21. Traditional design with a perfect stretch and drop for my taste. Thanks ChopCult and Voodoo Vintage for putting this together!
