CB550 is motivating

We got the 74 CB550 off the stand yesterday for her initial test ride. Got about 5 minutes on her in the afternoon heat.  Can't beat the sound of that 4 cylinder singing.

We'll start on more of the appearance items now with the tank and covers, plus work on tires and the rims.

CB200-1 done, starting CB200-2

We completed the resurrection of CB200-1 last week with the painting and installation of the muscat green tank.

Now we move on to her sister, a storage shed find CB200 from Dayton.  Initial results are good with the carbs clean and tires ready to install.

Cb200 barn find

Fresh from the barn after a good 20 year slumber, this sweet little 200 polished up well.

Took it down to the frame

And then back together.

73.5 Targa strip down

Starting the stripping of the 73.5 targa, found in the mountains of NC after sitting for a few decades. 

We are doing all the metal work and repairs, paint stripping, and interior.

We'll have Lou Smith at Exclusive Motorwerks help out with the motor and tranny.
