CB450 Cafe racer
After 2 and a half years, the CB450 lives!
Built from a $50 barn bike, various spare parts, and dumb luck. For the
curious, a list of parts in this bitsa:
* 1976 CB500T engine
* 1979 CB750K front wheel
* 1981 (maybe?) CB900F front rotor
* 1978 CB750F forks, caliper, and front fender
* 1979 CX500D tank (polished, and clearcoated)
* Aftermarket Exhaust, no idea.
* 19" DID alloy front wheel
* 18" Akront alloy rear wheel (yeah, they don't match, but it still looks
* Stock seat pan, with the back of a CB450 tank riveted on, and polished.
* LED turnsignals and taillight.
* Lots of stainless bolts, spraypaint, grease, oil, and cursing.
Thanks for the comments!

Hard Knock Bobber 233 Twin gets stolen by some shmuck???
http://www.deldovacycles.com/ This s a follow up video of building a 233
twin in 22 days. I have done it and it is finished and running. The right
side shifting takes
a little bit to get used to but it is different and fun to ride. Now I just
need to tune it
and mess with the gear ratio a little bit and it should be good to go.
