Nice Jay! Can't wait to see a build thread.

As far as people who can't ride, there were 3 people in my rider's safety course who I think shouldn't have passed. They just didn't seem to get it. At the very least, they should have been made to retake the course.

It's just too damn easy to get a license.

Had to throw in some inspiration for you. This, by far, is the best lookin' CB chop I've seen.

Don't do it Jay, It's too cool. I won't be able to ride with you then.

That's a sweet looking scooter bro.

Too much "Detroit Bro's" for my taste. Ditch the drop seat frame for something clean -- a hard-tailed Jap frame will do.

Sorry but we built that bike way before anyone knew who Detroit Bros were and it is a hard tailed "Jap" frame. Its actually the stock xs650 engine cradle and we build the hard tail.

I don't know who the Detriot Bro's are, and don't care. You've got a cool ride, and won't see another one parked next to yours when you're out and about.

It's good you put the intakes facing downward. That thing would suck your happy parts in and be crushed by the pistons!
