So, this forum has been pretty dead the last few months so I'm gonna share my winter project. I've wanted to do a cafe style bike for quite some time now. Its a barn find 73 Honda CB550.

I apologize in advance for the shitty quality of the photos and the hoarders mess of a garage.

Started tearing it down and found a couple mice nests, one being in the air filter. And the gas tank is rusty as hell. Haven't been into motorcycles too long but can't imagine a tank being worst then this. The wiring is a giant cluster fuck as well. The guy who had if before me had some chopper style bars and needed to extend the wires it looks like. I ended up just cutting all of them out and will rewire the whole bike from scratch.

Made a bit more progress with it. Also ended up cutting all of the now useless brackets that where seemingly everywhere. Simple is better

Did a quick mockup to see how the tank and the seat go together.

Got the frame striped down and started paint prep. Ended up media blasting most of it and sanding/wire wheeling the rest. Forgot to take a photo before primer but whatever.

Then started prepping the motor for paint.

Hey, hey, hey, thats been every forum under the sun lately. I'd like to think this place can outlast every other forum besides ZT, It always picks back up in the winter off season.


But back on topic. This is fucking rad, I love CB's like whoah, but I dont know jack shit at all about older bikes. My neighbor is building a Honda CB750 all fucking retro dirt racer sick. Im psyched for this, thanks for sharing.

Thanks, dudes.

Worked on it a little yesterday. Got the motor back in and mounted the front and rear suspension. The rear has a set of 1.6'' drop shorty shocks and the front I decided to cut 2" inches off the fork springs. This should result in the low aggressive stance I'm aiming for. Also got the front end painted.

Just another teaser pic with the unpainted seat.

Got new tires mounted and painted the wheels. Also had to shorten the kick stand by a couple inches to make up for the drop in hight. Did more shit then that, really. But nothing else worth talking about.
