    1977 CB550 Ground up cafe racer build

    1977 Honda Cb550 Cafe racer. selling to fund the next cafe build! This bike has been 100% torn down and rebuilt by ME. 13,000 miles Runs perfect! It starts as soon as you hit the button and sounds awesome. The donor bike came from New Hampshire so no title, just a bill of sale. Too many things to list but here are a few:

    -Frame fabrications (rear end, center triangle)
    -Electronics and battery re-located under the seat
    -Hand shaped and fiberglassed seat
    -new rear shocks with 2 inch booster blocks
    -new tires
    -restored rims
    -MAC 4-1 chrome exhaust
    -loaded gun rear-sets
    -pod air filters
    -rebuilt and re-jetted carbs
    -shorty front fender
    -clip on handlebars
    powder coated frame
    -custom paint job
    -Mini tachometer
    -hidden key ignition
    -customized top crown

    Im forgetting a few things. Come and check it out, you wont find another like it. Lots of hours, money and hard work put into this bike. I want to see it go to a good home. $3500 firm 978-290-0913

    Lots of cheap parts and the price reflects it. The only part I am worried about are the shock "lift blocks"?!?!?! have you guys zoomed in on that nonsense? that is some janky shit. I mean, it's a good start for someone to put real parts into it and fix the other nonsense.

    I kinda like the color. I don't totally want to shit on this guy. but still, maybe the reason he's not happy with it is because so many corners were cut to deliver a less than fun riding experience.

    The color is kind different.
    Rest is cookie cutter at best.

    Thanks. I got the idea for the color scheme from the Ducati sport classic Paul Smart edition. I am very happy with the bike, I just like to build, ride then sell to build another. This is not my daily rider. Thanks for the feedback
