    I reckon that the CB will look great!

    I found myself here too, looking, reading up on advice. This was after I found a lovely deal not too far away from where I live.

    I am on a rather tight - read VERY, ie recycling loads and making use of fabrication - budget, but that is part of the fun for me. Else I'd go out and get someone else's creation

    Good luck with the build and, yes, post lots of pictures
    1978 CX500 - project bike
    1977 TF185 - project bike (for the Mrs)
    2003 DRZ400 - Sold
    1985 KX250 - restored motorcross bike - Sold
    2003 Dakar - Sold BOUGHT BACK! YAY!

    Look forward to see what you'll cut, chop and modify. Good work on the scooters. Later

    Mine is a 1980 Custom so yes it will fit perfectly. How about 50 plus shipping. I just bought a Deluxe tank and that is what he charged me so it would be like a trade. Let me know

    Last night I started looking over the bike gave it a good washing and started to notice a few buggered things. I guess riding the bike around the ranch too its toll. A lot of not original bolts and screws. Sad thing the screws that replaced most of the were not metric. He just used what was close and forced them in. I have a bit of welding and re-taping to do. But that is was is expected with a 33 year old bike from a farm. HAHAH

    The bike being in the good shape it is will have a lot of parts that I would be selling. if your looking for a missing or damaged part hit me up thru out the build. The whole front end is being replaced( forks, bars, disc brake, windshield, possibly the custom tank, seat, rear and font fenders, blinkers, side covers, foot pegs & both wheels. Well that is all I can think of at the moment.

    Cheers
    Mike

    I'm definitely interested in the mirrors, a couple of turn signals, and that crash guard, if you're taking it off.
