Hey there. The subject says it all. I'm looking for a solid project bike (preferably a CB550) that I can customize into a nice cafe bike. I'm having trouble tracking one down in my area (Ontario). It doesn't have to be perfect, but it does need to be solid mechanically.

If anybody has a lead on one of these, or maybe if you are looking to sell your own, please contact me.

I'm in Detroit, which isn't too far from Ontario (depending on where you are). I've got a comlplete '76 550F that is definitely a project. It needs a lot of work. No title. But, I'll let it go cheap.

Chikor: Where are you located?

Rob: Your bike may suit my needs, but I'm in Ottawa...probably a 8-10 hour drive from you. Also, importing a bike into Canada is a $182 flat fee, plus 15% on the purchase prices of the bike. Not to mention travel/shipping...I'm thinking that the costs would amount to too much for me. Thanks for posting though (unless you want to drive it here and plunk it on my doorstep for free! ;) )
