My project

Postby Kennet » Sun Dec 20, 2015 5:49 am

Hi, I am new to this forum. I am a guy from sweden that love to build caferacers. When I was younger Honda four was racers for me. I have never hade one so last summer I decided to buy one. I choose 650 for the weight/ power ratio.

This is how it is turned up. This winter I will put a little better finnish on it. It is sprayed in lotus racing color.

Here is some other pics. I tryed to make an old racing bike in patons colors (also Lotus colors). No plastic is involved in this bike, and all is done by hand. Here is a link to some kind of buildthread from last winter, feel free to like it. https://www.instagram.com/kennetsgarage/

Great thanks for your interest and kind words. (I am sorry for my english writing).

Petroltank is original but I have beaten it up and gave it brand new knee dents. This is in the begining of beating the knee dents. It was a realy hard work.
Image
I also hammered it underneath so it should sitt lower on the frame
Image
Then I took away fliller cap and took it apart so it was only just the cap left. Then I hammered the tank so the hole for filler cap came lower down in tank so it could not be sticking up in profil of the tank, put a cap from a jam jar on the old cap an drilled a hole in it putb in a hose for ventilation and voila it looked old for my eyes.
Image

Before I made the seat I modified the frame so it would be a little more narrow behind the tank, and shortened it.
Image


The seat, or if it is saddle (I dont Know) is made of sheat metal. Hammered in my workshop on the concrete floor to be bent in a small quarter of a ball. Welded together with the part that is the base for the actually saddle. Then I make one more base and dressed that in brown suede, bulted it right throw an in to some small attachment I had welded on the frame of the bike.

Front end is original , I have just taken of the black paint.



This is when i first came up on the lift.
