Finishing up my cb650

Postby Nicholaskent54 » Tue Jan 31, 2017 11:20 am

Build going well so far. Hydrodipped the tank to try to tie in the po's choice of frame and engine color. Finished up most of the wiring, only need to hook up the led bar break light and put back on the pipes.

Looks good. Curious how much clearance you have on the rear brake with the swing arm? Could be the picture but seems like it may hit.

I have about 8in of clearance. Good eye. I'm thinking about putting the licence plate on the side and mounting only the led bar strip under the seat. I already have the shock absorbers maxed out and the seat has rear brackets that will bring it up a couple of inches.

Is this an 81? What size seat is that?

It's a 1980. The seat is 18.5cm wide 53cm long. I got the seat off of an app called wish. Costed me 53 bucks and is actually pretty darn good quality.
