First Bike, 1981 CB650C

Postby ChrisRyan » Fri Nov 24, 2017 9:56 am

A couple Fridays ago, I went and picked up my first motorcycle, a 1981 Honda CB650 Custom, with roughly 13000 miles, for $450. The only work I've had to do is put in a new battery, drain the old fuel, and clean the carbs and now she starts, runs, and rides like a dream. After riding it around for a few days, I changed the oil and filter, cleaned the carbs, stabilized the fuel, and stored the bike in my basement for the winter. (Not my best idea, by the way...) The first picture is from the seller, and the rest are from after I got it home and cleaned up.

Hi Chris and welcome, as CB650 said, nice bike for the price. Have you got any plans for it or are you keeping it as it is? I like my CB650's in stock condition as they aren't very common here in the UK.

Right now, my plan is to keep it as is, not quite stock, as it has an aftermarket 4-into-1 exhaust, and I may replace a few small things, But I don't have any plans to change the overall look of the bike.
