Kick ass! Let us know how it goes. What year is it?

I like anything '76 and older - the single OHC bikes as parts are an abundance and they are easy to work on/fix/tinker/modify...etc.

I still have my '73 CB cafe bike that I'll probably be selling after my Enfield is registered. If you need any help with CB specific stuff I can definitely help you out.

My .02 - keep it old school, simple, clean. There are really cool bikes made by Benji and Carpy, but way to flashy for my blood.
The forks are 35mm and clip ons can be found for around $50 bucks on ebay. Strip the bike of blinkers and screw the electric start...those are for pussies.

A word of advice with the electrical: get a set of coils from a super sport (79 and up) that have replaceable plug wires/ends and give a super HOT spark every time. They have a different ohm resistance and will wear the points faster but points are an easy adjustment!
Always, not matter the cost, get Honda factory points, condensors...etc . I've spent loads on electrical parts that don't ever work, even though they are Japanese (Daiitchi...etc)

If you want to go with spoke wheels, try lacing them to 18" as the CB is a super tall bike. I have 19" and no short person dare attempt sitting on it without the chance of falling over.

Shit, this was more like my .04!
