Default Brat Bike project - UK

Hi everybody, Having just got my VW Bug on the road http://volksrods.com/forum/showthread.php?t=33845 my attention has turned to my winter brat bike project. Been thinking about how to modify my old motorcycle and had looked at cafe racer style, somehow I didn't relish riding it with dropped clip-ons...with my back??!!

So, browsing around I saw a few bikes I really likes the look of and given I had been thinking about using stock bars of slightly longer bars along with an immaculate stock tank in colours I really like...the solution to my problem presented itself.

So, I present to you my BratBike project.

I'm gonna take this stock Honda CBX550F which I have owned for 16 years, but only ridden for 2 of those years from this....



to this kinda thing....



I'm sure it'll involve a bit of this and a lot of this

Here's a quick progress image having spent a fruitful couple of hours on it yesterday.

Most of the ass end will be gone....



...so it looks like this...



surprising it's already taking shape
