    The cafe scene was long past by 1979, street modifications were based on the "Superbike" racing series. Shocks, forks, brakes, handlebars your 650 could be upgraded to replicate the performance bikes of that vintage.Name:  1979 cb650.JPG

    That rear suspension will function, it was state of the art proven technology long before you and I were born.



    Better would be a linked mono shock suspension like on a modern bike because that design would offer you far more adjustment at a cost of complexity and expensive components.
    ... you have to be careful with this graphic image because apparently some of the guys here find it somehow erotic:

    Could show him how to do this right instead of leading him to end up with a worthless parts pile.

    Yep, cut it up and re-engineer it. I could give a fuck less. Bunch of fuckin 'tards.

    Does "showing him how to do it right" involve swiss cheesing his seat pan with a cordless drill?

    Actually on this model it would be a great way to reduce weight at a high point on the bike. Brilliant idea hillsy.

    I usually get 2-3 lbs by trimming and drilling the stock pan. More weight is reduced with cutting foam and using a lighter cover. In fact, i often drill holes in the foam as well. Done correctly, it will still be overbuilt.

    Anytime you can reduce weight without sacrificing function it is a good thing. Especially unsprung weight, or weight that sits high on the bike.

    Skateboard deck with Grampa's Brando jacket stapled to it is as light as it's gonna get. You should go there.

    Mine beats the shite out of that it's just a plastic rear fender that is shaped to form the seat and the plastic air box doubles as the rear subframe and exhaust support.
