    Hello there, first time posting here and hoping for help. At this point I'm pretty desperate to fix my bike but haven't found any answers online or from my mechanic. Bike is a stock 78 cb550K and it's blowing white smoke out of number 2 exhaust. This happens after riding it for 5-7 mins when the...

    Hello everyone. This is my first time on this forum, and I'm looking for some expertise. I recently purchased a 1978 Honda cb400t Hawk II. The engine would turn over but it wouldn't start. Well come to find out that the engine is pretty messed up. So I'm looking to swap the engine. I know...

    Hi all, after driving around on my CBF125 for a few weeks I'm ready to start making some mods but I have literally zero idea how to get started. There's not too much content here on CBF125s. So far I managed to take the seat off and the side panel-thingys to have a look around but now I am even...

    Hello all, Trying to figure out if I got scammed with my recent 1982 CB750k puchase. Took the off the headers and found a cut in the frame on the drivers right side: It looks like the frame has been cut and replaced from the right rear footpeg to under the headers. Here is the bracket near...

    Hey guys news here! I have a couple questions about this build I'm starting. 1: what newish front ends can I put on to get a disk brake or is that even worth it? The guy before me laid it down years ago and never used it again and it is beat to hell. Figured I'd update it. 2: The engine had...

    I picked this bike up for about $300 and it even ran. I have all the original parts but someone before me tried putting pod filters and rejetting the carb to make them work but they failed. So it ran a little crappy but nothing was broken. I stripped it all the way down because it needed a...

    Just thought I would throw in my experience on this site, because it has helped me in the past. I bought a 1981 CB400t as a fix and sell, knowing there were a couple issues with it out of the gate. One of which was the drain plug had been overtightened, stripping the threads and causing a...

    Hi everyone! So I'm just going to jump right in. I've recently bought a 1970 Honda SL350 K0 that has a 74 Honda CB350 Twin motor. The bike idles great at around 1,100 just sitting in the drive way and on a quick trip around the block. But when you ride it for a longer period of time it starts...

    Hi CafeRacer.net Just wondering if anyone could help with the type of Honda motorcycle this is? Please ignore the rider if possible. I am pretty new to motorcycles and cafe racers in general, so any help would be much appreciated as I am starting to piece together my first build. Cheers.

    Hey guys I just got a free bike and wanted some insight on how a cafe racer conversion may go or look. The bike is a Honda v45 Magna, thats a 750cc. Shaft Driven and liquid cooled. I am having a hard time finding any builds towards cafe racer. Plenty of guys make sick bobbers from these. Can...

    Hey all, recently got my hands on a Honda cb400t. I'm completely new to motorcycles, parts, and building. I've come to this forum to get the basics and possibly develop my skills along the way. The bike was in pretty rough shape when i got it and I've just been doing research on parts and...

    Hello! So I have a pretty big problem here, and I'm at a loss... when I bought my Honda CB125s (1974) it ran great - revved fine, could hit 65ish (pretty good for a almost 45 year old bike). Then it sat for about four months while I turned it into a cafe racer. I took it all apart and cleaned...

I've been a car guy for 10+ years and have worked mostly on old Volvos, adding turbos, adapting transmissions, and in general making them way more...
