Gee. Looks great.
This is a discussion on CB500 Four K1 within the NEW MEMBERS READ HERE! forums, part of the Caferacer.net Forums category; Bought this on eBay. Got this far via a disk cutter and couple of sketchy seat mock ups. Not sure about either....

It looked like a good bike when you got it. Did it run? A plan is always handy... before you start.
That looked a decent original bike.
Poor thing didnt stand a chance RIP
Don't forget to those those OEM pipes in the dumpster. They're worthless......
..... and, where would said dumpster be located?
Ya know, when so many of these CB fours became victims of the 70's, at least they could be revived by replacing the 16" Harley wheel, removing the 6" over forks, and unbolting a few tacky JC Whitney catalog purchases.. The current trend of "grind before planning" has "point of no return" plastered all over it.
I saw the first pic and thought "well there ya go" that'll clean up nice. Then I saw the crime scene photos. The coolest bike when everyone is done grinding and bending the shit outta every CB they can find will be a bone stock one. But, if it makes you happy grind away.......
If you can't pick it back up, don't ride it.
what an asshole.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.
