Swap done - CeeBee-6-Fiddy

Swap done. Greg that I swapped the Speedy for his CB650 is a true gentleman.

I now have a bike that is as old as i have been riding for. 36years. I have wanted a classic bike for some time. Since I sold the Matchelss years ago. Never thought it would have been a Honda.

Ugly parts have been taken off. Nice parts are on. Photos tomorrow.

Bye Bye Speedy.... Speedmaster...

Yep my Speedy is leaving me.


I am bored with it. I got it to were if I wanted to modify it any more it would mean lots of coin and maybe some frame chopping. Two things I don't have or want to do.

So I have swapped it for a 1979 Honda CB650Z that has had a full restoration done in the last 12 months. This was facilitated through Sydney Cafe Racers facebook group. Great people who love the modify bikes.

So what does this Honda look like?

Once the swap is done will post more photos.
It will have a few none destructive cosmetic changes done once I have my greasy paws on it. Stay tuned. 

Bob done - Speedmaster

Done. Besides painting the back of the number plate.
This is stage one. A big stage as I did just bolt something on. I cut something on the bike. Now that first cut is done......

Bobbing - Speedmaster

Angle grinder attacked the Speedy today. Took a big chunk out of the rear guard. Bobbing time. 

The guard weighs a tonne.

Made a tail light. Take blinker body from the original Speedmaster blinkers  and a old style tail light.

I cant cut straight lines...... This will be fun.

Fine tuning with a file

Tomorrow wiring and fitting it all back together.
