1975 CB550 project - September 21, 2011, 10:59 AM



Working on a title now.

My ideas:

OD Green tank, fenders, and side covers.

Black powdercoat everything else. Wheels, engine, frame,etc

.50 cal heat shields on fork legs.

clubman bars

single seat.





Thoughts?

That bike has a pretty rare 4 into 1 header. Too bad the muffler is MIA. Simple builds look good. Don't paint the engine, unless powder coated it will most likely flake off, same for wheels. I know a little about CBs, I'll help with whatever.

If you actually got that...

1- don't go single seat only. Here is a chance to have your lady get on as well. make it a removable cowl. She'll look great on this bike redone. Plus you won't need to get a tourer and can get a tard.

2- rethink your color scheme. Putting aside your personal history and loyalties, I think the scheme is played out. Throw some flake in the paint and do it justice.

3 - clubman bars? you may be happier with a flat bar, and more unique

4 - get the cafe fairing and throw flake on there too

Links?

I actually have some superbike bars that will probably work


I don't think 550 will replace the need for a tourer, but point taken on the single seat

Most paint retailers can put normal colors in a spray can, that heavy 70's flake is not one of those instances though.
