G’day! I’m an Aussie in Canada with a 1979 CB650!

Postby DANFROMOZ » Tue Sep 18, 2018 9:31 pm

G’day, I’m DanFromOz and I have a 1979 CB650 that I’m about to modify, actually I think it’s going to be more of a ground up rebuild and modification with the plans I have in mind. I’m looking forward to sharing as much of the process as I can and I’m hopefully going to get started fairly soon.I'll try adding some pics shortly. She’s done about 30k and it was passed on to me from a close family friend, as I was looking for a while for a few possible options and this just kinda fell into my lap! I’m an Aussie living on an island off the Atlantic coast of Canada, so if there’s anyone whose close by let me know.

Nice '79 there. First red one I've seen, not bad.
Noticed the carbs are not stock.
Are those off a cb750?

THanks for the comment Cb673! You have a keen eye. Yes, the previous owner had said he added the carbs from a CB750. I’ll be seeing him this weekend and I hope to get a bit more info about the swap before I start my rebuild, as I believe there are three different variations and just want to know what I’m dealing with. I think I’ll need to start a build thread shortly. I’d like to document with photos and video the best I can because I know I appreciate it when others do, but it does make the process a bit harder.
I have some big plans, I’ve just ordered a GSX-R front fork conversion and rear disc brake conversion from Cognito Moto and 18 inch laced Sun rims front and back, so it should get interesting pretty soon. I have a feeling I’ll be reaching out for some answers here over the process too....
