  1. Project Logs
    Hey Folks! I've had my 360 for a week or so and I just started the teardown procedure last night. Here are the results at the end of night one: Just about everything needs work on this bike, so far I have on order: Fork stanchions (these are pitted pretty bad) Fork seals New heavy duty rear...
  2. Project Logs
    Hey guys here is the CB175 K7 project I'm calling "The Abarth 175" for the combination colors, sleek and small design. I owned a 2015 Fiat 500 Abarth black with red tand silver trim, dual exhaust, turbo 5 speed. I recently sold it. I miss it dearly. I bought it about 8 months ago not running...
  3. Member Introductions
    Hello everyone! I've been on here a long time now and realized I'd never posted an intro, so here goes! I bought this non running CB360T when i was living in Cali a few years back with the intentions of just doing the bare minimum to get it running. At the time I had absolutely zero...
  4. Bikes For Sale
    I am selling my 1974 Honda CB200. I bought this bike as a project a couple of years ago, and while I had a great time building it to its current state, I do not have time to ride it or push the build to the next level. This bike has a decent amount of character, with some minor surface rust on...

    Hi All! I just joined the forum as I recently picked up a working amazingly near-stock 1984 cb450sc with newly timed carbs, new chain+sprockets, tires, etc at 33KM. I know exactly what I want to do with it, but given that this model wasn't released in the US (i'm in Canada), there is limited...

    Hi all, Happy to have found this forum! I expect I'll frequent it as I navigate the unique challenges of owning an old bike! Here's mine, a 1972 Honda CB450. Fellow Canucks...I'll be interested to learn where your source parts this side of the border. Exchange is killer ;-)
  7. Frame, Suspension and Steering
    So I recently started a new project and it's a 1969 CB350. I plan to do a bit of a tracker/ brat style bike but can't stand the look of the 69 forks. I like the look of the 1973 CB350 forks but I'm not sure if I can even run them on the bike? Do I need to switch out the triple trees? Can I keep...
  8. Electrical Discussion
    One dilemma faces all cafe projects; hiding the battery and electronics after you remove the airbox to create that open minimalist look. I had to do a lot of research on how to make this work for my setup on my CM as there wasn't a lot available. Google searching lead me to Cognito Moto and...

  10. Miscellaneous Discussion
    Hello all! I'm working on a CM200T Cafe Racer project. Right now, I've got the bike stripped down to the frame, which I found has plenty of rust. I am thinking of repainting it, however I have not done this before. Here are my questions with attached pictures. First of all, the frame has a...
  11. Electrical Discussion
    I'm building a cafe racer and need a smaller battery that I can mount anywhere. The bike is only electric start so I don't know how big of a battery I'll need either. Not sure whether to get Li-ion or AGM. Also, I'm assuming I'll need a new R/R to go with it. I've seen good things about Mosfet...

    Hey dudes! Excited to be on the forum and to get tips on my 1980 CM400 cafe build. I live in San Francisco and my primary bike is 2010 Triumph Thruxton, but I have been itching to have a project for the spring. I found a nice CM up in Napa for $1000 with 12k on the clock. It was mechanic-owned...
  13. Project Logs
    Hello friends. I wanted to share my first project close to the end. A little background history: My mechanic friend told me that some years ago he had sold one of these bikes to a friend, and he sold it back because he did not use the bike. I wish I had a picture of it before the work, but...
