Whatchu up to Acedit...... Whens the next episode so i can set the DVR ...Started this evening with test fitting a few goodies.
First up, swapping out grandpa's rear suspension. Too fat, too cush. Slimming her down and lower the stance a bit.
Then moved on to some bars. Yeah, you can now see some of the transformation. These are Renzo dirt bike bars. I removed the center bar and flipped them.
That's it for the night. Again, this is only test fitting, but so far so good. I "may" be stealing something soon ... more on that stay tuned, haha! More deliveries are on their way!
Bah crap. Well, now I have to change my plans. Can't always have Vito be right ya know! :wink:Told ya there was a cafe' buried in that bike.
Thanks Harry. I thought about restoring but it hit me that there aren't too many CB900"C" cafes out there, "C" being shaft-drive. It's a great platform powerwise! The longer frame adds to a stretched look too. The fact that this is a low mileage bike that was in great shape kinda suited the bill for me too. I've been battling lots of little things along the way, but I'm confident it'll turn out sweet.Anyone but you I'd probably curse you out for chopping up that beautiful classic Honda, but I am sure the end result will be wildly fantastic knowing your skills. Nice job so far!
Yeah, We could call it "In the bar" and discuss anything we would say with friends in a bar. Probably have to be password protected though, some of you drunks swear a lot when you have had a few too many.We need a "Hijack Me" thread.. Saw one on a another forum.. Anything and everything is discussed on that thread.. Pretty cool
best. movie. ever.I was working for a major retail chain in the 70's and early 80's when the craze hit. For some reason the company decided to sell them in the Sp. Goods Dept (which I was a dept. manager of in one of their stores) since the auto store was leased to Crown Auto who also sold them. Everyone wanted one, but didn't have a clue how to use it properly.
The movie that really started it all was Smokey and the Bandit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6hGdPkn8Ow Kris Kristofferson followed later in Convoy if my memory serves me right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sd5ZLJWQmss
