    I'm sorry ya sold that honda too, because now it looks like its gonna be curb queen w/ 12' of 520 chain and bottle opener or brass knucks for controls. I gotta say the front end on the project Kz750 was bold and made me appreciate the modest look and understated stated performance of the stocker. but hey, to each his own. cheers, bcr

    his projects start at 5 large, if that's low buck, you're doing better than I am. for the record, I've got nothing against wacking up a CM450, great project bike, I'd just be looking to make it run a bit better, and look a little less pedestrian for the minimum outlay. couple hunert tops.
    cheers, bcr

    This is what one does with a cm/cb400/450 (other than throwing it off a bridge, of course):

    Fuck that, ride it off the bridge while Catboy films.

    I say howdy(you spelled it wrong) all the time, but I'm a super friendly hayseed.

    You're not actually John trying to pimp your shit are you? We don't like that...[B)]

    Ratty now that is under handed and mean streaked.
    Not John just a Sunday afternoon sale turned into meeting some one creative in the bike world was a cool day.
    Anyway if thats what he sells his bikes for ...a guy here building his own bike is never spending that much as labor of love is dirt cheap. But thanks for the spelling bee.

    Using "Creative" as a noun - ghey

    spider racing? lot of high style low function crap. I am sure the guy is a nice guy and all but really I don't see a lot of "creativity" as much as I see skill put to use copying other shit that is out there already. Also loss of points for having racing in the name but not actually having anything to do with racing. Or performance bikes for that matter. so yeah....ghey.

    more talk about the hawk. You guessed it......ghey.
