Short and simple

Today was quite the learning process and am very proud of myself for it. Everything I work on, I'm always learning but Rob always knows all about the bike to help me out. This was a different situation where we were both learning at the same time.
This time I was working on a CB 350 Twin and had to take a look at the kick start and see why it wasn't cranking properly. We were both unsure of how to take everything apart so I looked online to find a very helpful manual and spent a lot of time reading and learning the diagrams. Took that information and applied it to the bike and BAM! Problem solved, everything apart. When you accomplish something that way its just so much more rewarding.

What happens when you put a 400 single with reverse from a 4 wheeler into a GSXR-750 frame?

O.T.B. CB550....Splash of Color...

Getting bikes ready for the Super Show in Jan. One of them is the CB550 Street Racer. With the dark color scheme I thought some color would be cool.

Saturday in the Shop

Loop on the SS 350 is done. Customer wanted the seat on a hinge to gain easier access under the seat so his wish is my command. Something less glamorous tab making and mounting for the modified 750 covers.
Customer also dropped off  a fresh rebuilt Triumph engine for the Beehive build so now work can continue on the mock up!
