Hey y’all just want to introduce myself names tony picked up my first 650. Not new to bikes by any means but figured this will be a good place to start! Recently picked up a 79 with 6300 miles the end goal is to be a bare bones fun machine ala cafe lol

I had to turn my laptop upside down to see it properly :lol: Surely that bike is way too nice to Cafe? But then that's just me, I love them in stock condition as CB650's aren't so common in the UK, especially not in such good condition :)

Yeah, there's no way I'd change that bike. It's beautiful even upside down.

That is too nice of a bike to Cafe'. Be a realest and keep it the way it is. Maybe upgrade the exhaust. Just ride it the way it is and enjoy it.

Lol sorry guys can’t do it! I’m a mod whore lmao I don’t think I’ll go nearly as crazy with this as I have on previous bikes I’ve built but I can’t leave well enough alone! Here’s a few of my past projects the XS650 sadly never got finished. Kids and such and loss of interest with building a basket case lol the katana I built and rode till it blew up then traded it for said XS650 lol
