Parting Out: 1979 Honda CB650

Postby witttom » Sun Mar 03, 2013 4:19 pm

I have been contemplating putting this cafe racer project back on the road, and it probably would not take much to do it, but I know realistically it's just not gonna happen. I have a couple other projects I need to finish before I can even think about getting to this one. So, I've decided to part it out.

1979 Honda CB650 with 16k miles. Despite being in partial cafe trim, I still have most of the stock parts, and some extras (a couple seats, a couple tanks, and a box full of misc goodies). I will begin disassembling this bike within the next week or two.

Image

Here are just a few items that are available (but not limited to):
Charging Rotor
Exhaust
Ignitors/ECU
Solenoid
Starter
COMSTAR Wheels, 17" rear, 19" front.
Side Covers
Stock Seat/Pan/Foam (Upholstery in rough shape)
King/Queen
Aftermarket Coils
120mph Speedo
Tachometer
Front fender
Rectifier/Regulator
Front brake rotor
Rear drum assembly
Speedo drive unit
Rear cush drive and sprocket carrier
Choke Cable
Head light
Rear fender
Solenoid
Clutch lever (some road rash)
Front brake lever
Ignition/Pulse Generator
Headlight Bucket
Gear Shift Lever
Fuse block
...and lots more.
If you don't see it, I may still have it.

These items have sold, or are no longer available:
Cafe Seat/Tail (I plan to use it on a different project)
Front Brake Caliper & Brake Line
Front Master Cylinder & Lever
Rear wheel spacers
Rear sprocket and mounting nuts
Carb boots
Chain
Fuel Tank #2 and mounting pucks
Fuel Tank #1
Clutch Cable
Thottle Control & Cables
Left Controls (Signals/Lights)
Grips
Key set: Ignition, Gas Latch, Seat Latch, Key
Rear Brake Switch
Camshaft
Tach Drive Gear

Exhaust
Frame w/Title
Swingarm and rear axle
Carbs
Front forks
Triple trees
Front axle
Side covers
Rear Grab Rail

I will be breaking this bike down over the coming days, photographing individual pieces, and selling everything. Let me know what you need. I will be updating this thread with a list of parts that have sold. It is fairly common for me to ship parts out the following day after receiving a PayPal payment, but sometimes it takes me two or three.

I will answer PM's, but if you have an interest or questions about specific parts, it's usually best (and quicker) if you email me directly at witttom@yahoo.com (three T-s in w-i-t-t-t-o-m).

Interested in front fender, headlight, mounting ears and blinkers if not badly rusted or pitted. Can you send pictures?

The headlight that I have from this 79 model is not original and not in great shape. I do have a nice headlight assembly from a 1982 model year, but I'm no sure if the style is the same as the 79 or if it is what you're looking for.

Fender (I have a couple)...
Image



This 79 also used a different set of headlight mounting brackets that did not attach to the forks like other models years that I've seen. I'll need to have a closer look to see which ones are in decent shape. I have a couple different sets. Do you need a set like this, or something other?

Image

I will try to get pics of everything else.

These would be for an 81' Custom. I'm looking to replace worn/ratty parts with nicer items.

The 82' headlight looks perfect. Do you happen to have the reflectors also?

The fender looks nice enough no dings, and minimal rust/pitting.

The mounting ears pictured look like they would fit, but don't meet the requirement of minimal rust/pitting.

I'd like to see what other fenders and mounting ears/blinkers you may have.

Thanks again.

I dug through several of my parts bins for spares.

I do have a pair of headlight bucket reflectors.

I have some other headlight mounting ears, but they're all in about the same shape:

Image

Likewise with the fenders. I have several. All of them are either really dirty, or have light surface rust. This one looks rough, but I was able to rub some of the rust off with my fingers:
Image

I also have a different style that I have found on some CB650's. I believe this one is from an 81 custom. I have a couple of these. This is probably the better of the two. They're a lighter fender and do not have the crossover bracing like the others. This one has a slight crease on the forward left edge that can been seen in this photo.
Image

I'm assuming none of these are really up to par with what you're looking for, but figured I'd show you what I have.

I have several turnsignals/stalks scattered about. I just forgot to take a photo of any of them while I was in my workshop.
