Not old school, but still metric.

A friends bike, just left my shop about 6 weeks ago.

started out like this, picked up for $200



Another $150 later, I messed up the exaust trying to modify it, so that needs to be changed, but it will be done in a few weeks for less than $500 total

1980 CB650 Bobber...

Just recently picked this one up off of ebay....I'm going to pick her up on Saturday. This is my first Jap Chopper project and I'm looking forward to learning from this experience and building others. I figured this bike gave me a good foundation to start with. Now I just need to figure out who makes a lower two seater seat, where to get an aftermarket back fender, and where to get an aftermarket frame for later....Any help you guys can give me going forward will be GREATLY appreciated...Thanks for the great forum as a resource!!!!
