Hey y'all,
I am beginning the next project this weekend. it'll be a 76 Honda cb550 with CBR suspension. It'll be light and able to stop on a dime,or at least that is the hope.
Any suggestions?

Actually, it looks 'nice' and is proportioned pretty good, but, is pretty terrible.
Swing arm is about 4"~6" longer than stock, less fork offset means it has more trail.
Cafe bike that steers like a supertanker.
Way to go man :D

You forgot the terrible FZR 600 stock shocks. I mean plum awful. The hot setup used to be to throw the stock ones in the garbage and use forks of a gsxr.

I am surprised that they didn't use the swinger of an fzr400. They are shorter and aluminum, use all the same geometry, and bolts in anywhere the 600 arm bolts in.
