Nice work so far. But unless my eyes decieve me, you need a set of tires on that baby before you venture too far...or it's gonna end in tears.

yea I know, I'm waiting for my tax check to come in, I need to get the carbs synced too, so I might get both done at the same time. I did leave some rubber there lol

Yeah, looks like she's been through the ringer and rode hard. Hey! I have a set of turn signals, do you want them? Oops threw them away<img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

If you build it they will ride - ill.

ya know, for some reason, i really like it. that is bad assed looking and i bet it freakin howls. upgrade the front brake. put some dual disks on it, definitely some fresh rubber or you will for sure end up in traction, and it would be a bad assed looking bike that probably would go pretty good and stop pretty good. i like that it sits low. reminds me of my buddies flat black cb900c. he had a 4-1 on it. it sat real low like that. it destroyed rear ties too, from burnouts. and, you can haul chicks with it. very cool.

Thanks I need to change out my whole front end to convert it to dual disc. Thats what my plan is for next winter, I'm going to try to collect the parts. I heard a couple guys on another DOHC CB board talk that with modern mastercylinder, stainless steel braiding brake lines and good pads they were able to lift the rear wheel while stoping in parkings lots with a single disc front, I'm going to try that too.

damn psyco.... i like it.

of course, i'd put duals in the front, spokes, visor on that headlight (VW's work), 4-1, new mirrors, different turns and tail lights, bob that fender, single seat, new rear suspention, replace them rear footpegs with rear-sets and then start working on a new cam and intake..... what are your plans? (besides the dual front brakes)

Well I'm going to make my own set of rear sets. Eventually get a 4-1 exhuast, direct lift carbs, a cams out of a CB1100F, home port a stock 750 head, a viper fairing. Thats about it, I want something different and fun to ride everyday, so I'm trying not to go crazy, thats what the other bike I'm building is for......
