I just finished shaking this bike down over the last few months, and all is good. So now i can say its done.

It’s a 1975 Honda cb 500t. I used the original engine cradle and front half of the frame and made the rest. Frisco mounted the sportster tank ( Im born and raised in San Fran, so i thought it fitting). I made the exhaust as well as seat and battery box, and the bars( everything was either built or re-built by me). It’s got a older dirt-bike front brake master cylinder and the original wheels, and drum brake in the back. The coils got replaced with some brit style ones and better plug leads as well as new points and condensers. I took the starter out and machined an aluminum slug and plugged the hole, making it a kick only bike. Its pretty simple, light and runs great.
