Re: Nwe member fra Denmark - Honda CB 500t Caf''

Ebbe mate :shock: awesome cafe and a credit to you, although i do like the old blue beast as well. I'm a sucker for bikini fairings on older scoots and this one looks the business and the speedo with no tach works so well, well done ;)

So what's next another Honda twin :?: :D :D

Re: Nwe member fra Denmark - Honda CB 500t Caf''

Thanks for the kind words...

I think i will enjoy it - and my VW splitbus - when it get warmer up here. No new projects for a while...

The "manx" fairing i did from a thin plate of alu... I am going to make it from a thicker piece... But now i have the "shape"

Beautiful bike! Very nice work.. I like what you did with the corrugated panels in the battery box location..

Jason, do I spy another coverpage bike here?? If he'll submit a better full bike shot that is??


P.S. Alright, spill the beans.. What model of upper bar clamp did you use that fit the stock bar clamps?? I must know!! ;)

The upper handlebar clamp shown in this picture: download/file.php?id=2491&mode=view

It's the piece with 4 bolts, holding the handlebars clamped down..

What bike did it come from originally??

Excellent work and nice splitwindow bus in the background (67?). Base coat/ clear coat paint on both?

It's a 64 spiltwindow - no only clear coat on the bike...

And regarding the handelbarfixture - I think it is the original set-up... I was on the bike when i got it... Maybe it is from a 400 or 450..? I weakly recall it was the same on my brothers 400/4 20 years ago...

This is the danish version of the brochure - it says "the choice of the experts" - right!

The bar clamp isn't original. It's from some sort of newer dirtbike. It looks similar to the one that's on my DRZ400S.. I wish you knew, because that's one part I'd like to add to my CB450..

Thanks for the reply though! ;)

EDIT: After a lot of measuring to confirm fitment I found this : http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Emig-Rac ... 3caa1e6317 BUT soon realized that I can't use it on my 450 due to the steering dampner.. DOH! :oops: However, if anyone is interested, it will fit your 450 just fine.. The measurements are the same.

Sorry for the threadjack..

Very nice. I'm in the process of building a 500T, also.
I like your VW, too. :)
