My girl and I are also interested in old bikes...'70's and early '80's Japanese bikes, cafe racers, old Triumphs and Nortons, English twins, etc. Old CB's and KZ's.
Anyone have any cool pics of cool bikes? Flat tanks and flat seats are cool!

carcentric November 7th, 2005 12:20 PM

Well, here's a paintshop of the '79 CX500-based TRIKE I'll be building after I get the SuperPhaeton on the road:

this is mine, it's a 77 cb5504-k i got it ransformed to a cafee racer wih clubmans and a mac 4-1 exaust. I still would like to change the seat, make it a single seat with a hard cover at the rear, lose the grab bar change the indicaters and lower the front just a touch. this thing is awesome to ide, very comfortable. I aso just got rid of a 66 suzuki t-20 2 stroke tc 250, and my friend got a 63 honda silver wing 80cc. some guy just gav it to him :Idunno:

ayway, here's the 550

i've got a bone stock 72 honda cb500 too, but i gotta do some work to it before it runs.

scott s November 7th, 2005 01:32 PM

Aircooled, that bike is SWEET! That's exactly what we're looking for. Preferably something 600cc or smaller.
VWuber...you wouldn't want to sell yours would you?

vwuberalles November 7th, 2005 01:38 PM

it's been my dad's since i was a little kid & he gave it to me so i'd kinda like to hang onto it but i dunno i might be inclined to if the offer was right. it needs some fuel system work, it sat with gas in the tank that went bad.

i found a pic of it.

it's in his garage actually, near raleigh nc.

Hmm, wwe're not too far from Raleigh. Wonder what it would take to get that bike adopted by a couple of cool enthusiasts who would get it back on the road?

only to then sell it for a song to a broke bastard a few miles south. Hmmm... :funny:

Alloy wheels? Not very cafe to me.

StinkEye November 7th, 2005 03:46 PM

Well, I may not be one to ask what the cafe 'rules' are. As far as I'm concerned, looking the way it does, it could have plastic wheels and I'd still call it a cafe.

Scott, give these guys up in Gastonia a call:

Gaston Motorcycle Shop
4110 S New Hope Rd
Gastonia , NC 28056
(704) 824-9666

They're an independent shop and have a yard full of old bikes.
I doubt they'll have any English bikes though, probably mostly Japanese stuff.
It's been a number of years since I've been in there but I do drive by it once in a while and they still have a lot of old bikes sitting around. Might be a lot of junk now but they may have something that'll work for you. Worth a shot, anyway.

I found this bike cheap on eBay and decided to go for it. Its a blast to ride, I figure I shaved around 200lbs off the bike.

I used to have one of these (not this particular one, but same year, model and colours)


http://www.classic-bikes.dk/Billeder/HONDA/cbx550.jpg


It was an '83 CBX550F and was a Europe and Canada model only. It was an inline 4 with quad carbs and mine had a 4-1 header. It just flat out screamed! It would easily keep up with the mid 90's ZX6 and 7 Kawi's and with the huge dual inboard vented brakes it could stop on a dime. I absolutely loved that bike but after throwing rods in 2 different motors I decided to give it up. Turns out there was a factory design flaw in the oiling system that would cause one rod bearing to run dry so almost all of these bikes threw a rod at some point. I found out after selling the bike that it is a simple fix and I wish I would have kept it. One day I'd like to get another one if I could ever find another one...

Here are the "before" pics of my next two bike projects - a 1966 Ducati 250 Monza and 1966 Ducati 160 Monza Jr. I was mainly interested in the 250 (yellow one) but the guy made me a package deal on both :

http://www.teamyikes.com/Resources/Monza001_s.jpg http://www.teamyikes.com/Resources/MonzaJr004_s.jpg

The squared off bodywork and high bars have to go. Plan for the 250 is an early '60s looking cafe style bike, all black with polished aluminum components. Plan for the 160 is still up in the air. I need to finish my current bike project (a '74 Ducati 750) before I start on the 250, but I seem to have already bought a couple of gas tanks and have my eye on a few other parts so I guess I'm already kind of working on both of them??? :wink:

The 750 HAS to get finished before I start pulling the singles apart though...

It's a 78 XS650 that has sat around the back yard for two years since it was hauled back from a music festival in the back of a transit van after letting me down. It later turned out that one of the fuel lines had worked loose & the tank had simply drained itself of gas. I discoverd this after replacing the coils & checking the electrics because I KNEW that there was plenty of gas in it! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Idunno.gif[/img] What a dickhead eh?

bike's looking great. Looking almost like the Rat Fink bike, maybe because of the color.


BTW: thread renamed Motorcycle Thread and added to the Lazy Thread for future reference [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Damn Newf that is pretty! A friend of mine just sold a similarly styled Triumph for $8500 to some guy in Portland who parks it in his garage next to his Ferrari [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/fingerclear.gif[/img] I hope you get to put some miles on it before some weekend warrior lawyer/doctor/etc makes you an offer you can't refuse.

all the cbs I'm seein in this thread are killin me..at the crackin' auto theres a virtually abandoned
cb550.One of the employees has it stashed in the upstairs parking lot behind the stairs,I asked but he werent there [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/FreakinSmiley.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/FreakinSmiley.gif[/img] how can I take up more space in a garage that doesn't have any?

aircoolednewf January 19th, 2006 04:02 AM

Thanks guys, I'm very excited about this project, shame it's winter here, but I low I'll still ride it regardless.
Um, whats the rat fink bike? I still got to do a graphic onthe fender and tank, and I was thinking some sort of scalop design, bt I can'r decide on a color, maby black with a silver pin, or white with a tan pearl with a silver pin. Also I'd lke to add a small mural maby a coop devil girl design, or some sort of rockabillyish skull to the top of the tank. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Idunno.gif[/img] I lost the ebay auction for the boer electronic ignition, and I want to change the tires I have looked everywhere for a set of doubble white pin tires with no luck so far.

Could be talking about the Triumph on the back of the Mega Cycle. I couldn't find a picture though.

I'm on a roll with posts today so here's an update on my 750 GT project:

http://www.teamyikes.com/bike.jpg

Parts are being gathered for the aforementioned singles projects too. The 160 has become the main focus. I'm going to rebuild it more along the lines of an earlier 125 Sport, which probably means nothing to you guys but trust me, it'll be cool... if you're into early '60s Italian stuff!

busguy71 January 20th, 2006 01:07 PM

my boss is selling his 1949 and 1960something Triumphs. keep an eye out on ebay, the '49 is baby blue. would make a really nice project bike (too bad I just bought a project bike [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/crybaby.gif[/img] )

Spyke March 10th, 2006 08:58 AM

Started mocking up the '66 Ducati. The tank and seat are going to change, but the fenders, headlight, and bars will be about like this. I may remove the valance on the front fender... or not. Haven't quite decided yet... the 250 will be getting valanced fenders front and rear so I may go with something more "sporty" on this one. I'm also going with 17" wheels rather than the 16" wheels it has now, so the front fender will be closer to the tire when I'm done...

"OH MY" can you just hear it......

gt brain June 15th, 2006 11:53 AM

Since I can't seem to focus on one thing at a time, the bug sits waiting for
an engine and my son and I have to start on something else. It's a
78 cb550 we've been hardtailing the last month or so. We still need to
finish up the carbs, figure out the wiring, mount the tank..... too much
crap to do, we just want to ride the damn thing. Just curious what you
guys think about the mustang tank compared to the stock tank?[attachmentid=10849] [attachmentid=10850]

I think it has a split oil/gas tank. That's the only thing I can come up with. Looking at the pics (I added the other side view) there are 2 caps on it.

mkparker June 24th, 2006 08:23 AM

Jesse's bikes are very cool! Kinda taps into that Stingray bicycle most of us had back in the day. The oil/gas tank occupy the same area...obviously not a cross country scoot.

Getting a little further along on it now...

That's the tank I'll be using, along with the 17" wheels. Toolboxes are mounted, seat pan modified, it's almost ready to start the teardown to refinish everything .

Trikes are motorcycles (by law, anyway), so this isn't really off-topic:
