some shots of my project bike (not my 700)



These are some shots of my Honda project. Got my engine put together and in the frame. Finished installing the carbs and radiator. Its coming together nicely, gotta get it running correctly and then its time for some shakedown runs.

You are doing something I thought impossible.You are making a CX500 look cool

BTW those are pretty dependable machines,My Older brother owned one for a little while ,it ran very well for a 500cc V-Twin,actually a lot better than the little VLX? 600 v-twin cruiser.Looking pretty good.Is that going to be Kelly's ride while you are working on the other VN?




If you see it on my bike I did it
VROC#30324
92 vn750(sold)
Current ride 05 1500 Classic FI
lovin' the new scoot

Its either going to be this one or the Yamaha virago750 I picked up with the vn700. That one is at least running, it just sounds like the starter is made from a box of rocks. We'll see how it goes after I hook up the wiring and put some gas to it.

Of the two the Honda has far better rear suspension Than the Virago's I have ridden,The seat height height was lower on the Virago but the rear suspension felt like a pogo stick.I thought that the shocks were shot on the one then I rode another ,same thing.Just check it out good and see what you think.

Duplicolor metal cast red anodized red. It really pops in person, the pics don't do it justice.

Comes in a few colors. It applies best on a polished metal surface. Just be careful because it scratches easily until you shoot it with a clear coat. It is fairly temperature resistant and I have spilled gas on it and was able to wipe the gas off with no problem.

fuel resistant is a major plus in my book
