CB progress

Getting there. I want to go scrambler style but my ambitions are larger than my wallet as usual. It will be roadworthy soon though.

Make it work!

I need a bike with a clean title to ride some medium distance adventures this summer but the 500 engine is toast and I have no money to resleeve or nickaseal it. So, I made the frame accept either the 400 or the 500 engine. Dubbed the CBslow, performance is considerably less. 27HP versus the 50HP from the 500. I'll nix as much weight as I can to bring it back around.

Slugged the inside at the connections. Pretty stout. (I hope).

Make yer own mounts.

A little tech tip. When spraying a gloss coat, set the can in warm water (not too hot or the damn thing might blow up). It helps the paint flow a little smoother, gives more pressure, and lets the paint relax a little easier on your piece. Make sure your piece to be painted is a decent temp too. Several light coats at about 12 to 16 inches away will mind the drips. But you already knew that.

CB500T Cylinders out there??

Anyone have '75/'76 CB500T Cylinder jugs laying around with some good life on the stock bore? Let me know. Mine has been over-honed by the previous owner and are out of spec. Oversized pistons are ridiculously hard to find. P.S. Im pretty poor.

Bastard. Currently.

El Bastardo as it sits currently.  Gotta do something for a seat cover. Sounds like a raped ape. Its the bane of my neighbors' existence.
