650 Custom in progress

Postby CPowell1994 » Thu Feb 15, 2018 9:32 pm

Recently acquired a 1980 CB650 Custom that I'm bobbing out. It's in pretty rough shape, but it runs. So far I've got drag bars and a sporty peanut tank installed. I have a new stator, master cylinder, and throttle cables to do over the next couple days. Then hopefully tax, tag, and tires. And the list goes on...

Your tank reminds me of the Sportster I rebuilt. As a gag, I put this emblem on the tank. It was only put there for the picture.

That's awesome :lol: the tank I put on is made for a 70's-80's sporty. I just rigged up brackets and bolted it to the frame. George, I would offer you the pipes, but then I'd need to have new headers built. Besides, they have more rust than the pics show. They're getting chopped, lollipopped, painted, & wrapped.

That looks a fun project. How's the progress now?
