I know...
haha, nothing that fancy....I deal with Japanese bikes predominantly. I've got quite a few projects running right now, two bikes are mine and 5 are customers/friends....I'll put up a pic of each with a little info:

My '75 honda CB550: swapped front end and rear end to cb750 supersport parts for disc brakes, hand-made tail section/seat, rearsets, and I'm building a 740cc hybrid motor for it (aiming for 100hp) The orange one is mine, the other one is Bonacci01's bike he built.



My '79 Yamaha XS650 hardtail build: pretty self-explanatory, repurposed some cool old stuff on it like the lunchbox for electronics box and copper bicycle pedal for kickstart lever



'76 CB450 twin, getting a basic cafe treatment...customer basically bought a bunch of stuff off dimecitycycles and dropped it all off for fitment:



'80 Suzuki GS750L (luxury model, never cafe'd due to weird frame) I cut the frame are reworked it so it would look proper as a cafe, then built a tail section from scratch.



'81 Yamaha XS650, cafe/bratstyle project, did an engine rebuild, gas tank replaced, and made a seat from scratch



'74 CB360, just picked up this project yesterday for my buddy nick. Going to cafe this one too. sweet little scoot.



I also have a 1970 Bultaco Matador in here for a friend, He was given it from his uncle who owned it since new as a teen.....just needs a major tune-up and some wear/tear parts replaced like cables and carbwork and such

Thanks! I have a hobby problem....my hobby is hobbies. I consider myself multi-talented, but it's sometimes a curse because there's so much I want to do so badly!

Haha, I'll get some more stuff in here on the RS soon....it's still snowy and 20 degrees outside and I work out of a 1 car non-heated garage. I tried building a mini booth in my basement to do some smaller parts with fiberglass, but I can't get an exhaust fan capable of moving enough air to keep the fumes out within the public market....and since no matter where I work in the basement I'm a max of 10 feet from my furnace and hotwater tank, I'd like not blowing up myself/house in the name of some RS wings or bumper trim pieces lol.

Thanks so much for the kind words

no such thing as "finished" with me....closest I would get to "finished" is if I sold it....which honestly is already a thought. Being that I'm 27 I'm starting to feel like it's getting to be time to move on to a more "mature" platform for my fun-car. Time will tell, I truly love the focus...I've just been driving one for 10yrs now.
