    Default Oh shit...don't tell my girlfriend....CB500/4

    CB500-4 built in the 70's.

    I bought it off a tranny metal worker. NO SHIT.

    It came with z bars, a 50's Indian Brave tank, 50's spotlight made into a headlight, some REALLY nice twisted iron work (Indian Larry style), old school electrical box, 4" over fork, all new pistons and upper end parts and a title. The bike s suppose to have about 5000 miles and most of the parts in the engine look clean. I have to get the engine all back together and track parts down, but I scored it for a fair price IMO.

    I just couldn't pass it up The price was right. Now I won't build the other XS650 I have into a hardtail.

    It was orginally built in the 70's and used to be full of bondo. The PO stripped all the paint and bondo off so that saves me a ton of time.





    More pics soon.

    After buying the new bike I was interested in twisting metal.

    I spent a few minutes today making this. this is my first attempt and I think I'm in love.



    I love metal!

    Default Cb 550

    These are great bikes to chop. I did a RAT BIKE last year and it got into a magazine and now doing another for a guy in BROOKLYN and did the frame completely over

    Cool. I'm really not a fan of four cylinders, but for $500 it had to mine!
