    Yes they do Multiply

    Another one has found its way into the stable. 1980C This will need lots of TLC
    Most likely will end up as son's bike, maybe a little cut and chop this time.

    izak and OCR like this.

    1980 CX500C -- THE THING -
    1979 CX500C -- Mrs. SLiM's $200 resurrection.
    09 Vstar 250 -- Very nice starter bike for those who want to get wife or GF riding.
    88 KZ305b -- Sons first bike, He left - Bike stayed.

    Past bikes

    Yup, I tell my wife all the time cycles are "a hearding animal" It's not healthy for them to be left alone leaned up against a tree/barn/shed. I consider myself a sort of Rescue shelter for the neglected abandoned and abused motorcycles of the area.

    The only thing worse then not having a cycle at all, is having one you can't ride, and right now I've got about 50 of them!

    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time but always enough time to do it again?

    Torque specs: Tighten it till it breaks then back off half a turn.

    If loud pipes save lives imagine what actually learning how to ride that thing can do!

    I'd rather be riding an ugly bike than pushing a pretty one!!!

    My stable:

    around 40 cycle projects
    CX650
    FZ700
    3 seca tubos
    83 v45 sabre

    1967 mustang rusty base model project

    '84 Fiero

    and a lot of other more boring stuff

    They lurk in alleys at night waiting to be picked up, a risky lifestyle.
    Good find.

    Another one:violent1: Someone else's failed project is now my next. Also an 80 custom.



    Of the 5 motors (parts) visible (2) are boat anchors, (2) I'm confidant will run without much work, (1) Will run but needs comp overhaul.
    I'm currently working on that one now, it will be satin Black with polished accents , carbs, clutch cover, thermostat housing and pipes and stainless bolts. To be installed in the "Blue thing" above.
