My 1974 CB550 project - July 13, 2011, 02:28 PM

I just recently got into Vintage bikes. Always loved the Cafe Racers since way back, but never really had the time for it. I picked up a 1974 CB550 about a month ago and got to work. Cleaned the cards, put lower bars, had the tank and side covers painted and did a few things here and there. I had planned to go radical, but now I think I like the "stock" look for now. Maybe I'll change my mind down the road and start cutting and chopping. Red is before when I picked it up from PA and Copper is how it looks today.

Anyone else into Vintage bikes and want to hang out and cruise around town please let me know.

-Brian

Nice, when you get it up and running lets cruise around! I've had many bikes in my riding career and by far this bike gets the most attention. I've got people complimenting me left and right! Too bad they are mostly older guys reminiscing........lol
