its vintage.. sorta-ish. the front end is modern, and its running a modern computer controlled ignition and LED lights. but the heart of the bike is still 1971 vintage!?

It's about 75% finished, I have to do the final parts of the engine/carbs/suspension/wiring/exhaust which always takes the longest .



It started off as a 550, I put the 650G top end on it (673cc's now), retrofit a kickstarter, 650E tank, GSXR-750 front end, 750 spokes with a custom adapter to use them with 320mm discs and the inverted forks, 954rr calipers, custom wiring harness (with RFID ignition), digital gauge, de-tabbed frame, etc.

The 650 makes 73hp stock and I'm hoping this will weigh in under 400lbs wet. It should be a fun ride whenever I finally finish it. I have a 900SS fairing for it too .

Fuzzy pic of a CB350-4 my nephew built from a junkyard dog.
My vision and meager cash, his talented hands. Miscommunication, as it was supposed to have a red frame but after he painted it, I didn't have the heart to remind him.
We put a small taillight and a "thru the number plate"headlight on it. Fun bike, lots of noise, not much go.
Dual disc brakes old school using two left hand fork legs. One caliper in front of the axle, one behind it. The way Triumph and others used to do it back in the day when they didn't have a proper dual disc set up.

That's awesome to hear. I knew that bike could be a strong runner, but I just couldn't spend anymore money on that old girl.

So glad you are taking care of her.

Guess I should contribute instead of just ogle.

1969 slim-line featherbed with a 72 T120 650. Ceriani front end, big bore kit, all aluminum is hand pounded, and polished. Took just about a year to build, mainly because of other projects.

Behind it is a 1965 Suzuki S32-2 125 T2 twin.



ETA: I sold this bike a few years ago. If the new owner is about, I would love to see the changes you said you wanted to do.

SWEET!!! Thanks, John. God I miss that bike.

ETA: not the most flattering photo I have taken... I should track down the YouTube video one of the riders posted that day. Man did that bike sound good.
