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 just let me tell you that his condition was a little sad, dirty, scratched, non functional lights, headlight broken, wrong handle,NO battery, etc .... but it had new tires, starts easy and was very cheap. (1800 soles in my country = 527 dollars).

First came to my mind a bobber, but get me to cut chassis and replace it with a rigid subframe, it was a job I did not want to give me, so I started to break it apart and look at the chassis on its original state, which is the same as a CB200 Roadmaster. So I decided I was going to have a style more like a "brat-cafe".

After cleaning it, remove excess paint, a new battery, new spark plugs, new handlebars from a Yamaha FZ16, oil change, reupholstered seats trimmed in thickness, was becoming ready.

I can say that I really like the way she goes, and the sound that those 2 exhausts give.... so nice. Until now I only had one cylinder bikes, and I really like it.

I would like to change the tank for something less cruiser and more like the type of an old CB, but here are difficult to get.

I just need to pick the original speedometer, tachometer indicators from a V-Men 125, think of some graphics and thats it.

What do you think fellows? Any recommendation?

Greetings for this new year 2016 from Lima, Peru.

Ernie1986, That's a great looking paint job,I love the color. :cool:
Looks nice isn't it?.... actually, that colour came with the bike (tank and side panels), but I did some polishing and cleaning and it look very bright. I do not know if that is the original colour or not. Do you know where I can find the options of colours for these models?
