    Default cb500 Springer chopper front brat rear hybrid

    Greetings: I am bigjeff and I did a cb900c bobber build a while was friggin fantastic to ride. But alas - I grew tired of my new toy and sold it. The buyer traded me a dilapidated old 1972 cb500 frame with a 78 cb550 engine with a fury springer and an invader front wheel. What? A NEW TOY to fuck with! I am excited.

    So we begin on the saga of the cb500/550 springer chopper front- brat style rear hybrid. There is a reason I went with the swing arm and shocks in the back rather than go hard tail but I will explain that later.

    Here it is being pulled out of the storage shed. It was there for YEARS AND YEARS......rusted bad.
