Re: '82 cb650sc project

Thanks for your patience George, here are the pics of the side covers. Both have been repainted (previous owners) without much prep work. One is blue and the other is black. The black one has a 3/4" crack on the top edge (see closeups, in & out). Both covers have had the center attachment t...

Re: '82 cb650sc project

Here are my update pics, physically small switches in metal for the bars. choke control relocated.
electric tray under the seat area.
proposed battery location just above the swingarm, planning a metal box with faux leather straps. Still plenty of "openness" in the rear triangle.

Re: '82 cb650sc project

Great progress. Now you have a nice, straight top rear frame. The shock mounts look great and I assume it was tough work to make them fit that way. Do the coils still fit at their original mounts with the lowered tank? The piston carbs will not fit this cylinder head if you have the full array of f...

Re: '82 cb650sc project

Welded! my new years resolution is to become a better welder so that cleanup afterwards doesn't take so long. But then I would miss some of my time meditating with a mill bastard in my hand!

Progress shots
This headlight may pose a wiring change!
These shock mounts took a little while to fabricate. The dremel with a cutoff wheel saves the day again!

Re: '82 cb650sc project

Finally made some progress. test fitting new frame parts to decide where to cut into the frame. found a race car shop to bend some tubing for me, then cut , bend, weld, hope. Rear wheel is blocked up to simulate full shock compression to check tire clearance.

Re: '82 cb650sc project

I got my tubing back from the bender today. Now we can start on the rear frame reconstruction. The factory "kong" job will soon be history!

Re: '82 cb650sc project

I have cleaned enough crud off the inside of fenders to make me want to avoid having to clean the same crud off the underside of everything else in that area. A minimal fender mounted to the swingarm seems like a good idea to me. Also giving major thought to changing the frame area under the seat. A...
