So i've been lurking and posting really dumb questions but i've finally got my bike on the road. I'm kicking my self for not documenting my build with pics but here is the semi finished product. I still have a few upgrades to yet do but for now its time to enjoy the So Cal sun and ride her around town. Thanks to all for helping me and thanks to all who will chime into my future posts.

Cheers.

That is one great bike, congratulations. I love the retro image. Hope it runs as good as it looks.
Well done.

Looks great Alekhine, nice work. Where did you get the headlight from?

I always kick myself for not taking enough pics too, think about it after when its too late.
i got the headlight bucket and the pedestrian slicer from Benjie, he hooked me up from my other builds

The bike can use a little more tweaking but it runs well enough...i need a new exhaust as the ones i have look great from the outside but the baffles are rusted to hell inside so the carbs constantly need monitoring. Also struggling to install the Hondaman ignition system. A work in progress but I'm happy as heck riding her around town

Alekhine,

I found you. I am the new owner of "The Bishop." Great work. I love this bike...you did her right. Well done. I would like to find out more about the origins of my machine. Perhaps we can chat about it? What is the best way to reach you?

Great bike, you have!

Very good looking Honda, not too much modded but enough... and it's in good shape.

WE are having mid summer fest, and I drove there with my honda 125 CB Twin (modded as caferacer)... soory don't have photos of it... it's not too shiny, year -77 model.
