Heres my new post, its gonna take a while to catch up and will follow the build. Most of the pics n info will be on my facebook page as its easy there, than tryting to list loads of pics on here.

Back on 2010, I was given a cb1000 chop that I could do anything with, but Saf wanted me to take here for a long spin and that I couldnt sell it.

Little did I know the journey a twat and life were to take us all on.

So here is the story of CBRTIM, Tim n me hope you enjoy.

The bike had been sat outside for a few years, and took us a while to free enough off, so we could get it in the van :)

As you can see she had been slide down the road a few times and was in a sorry state.

Too be honest, at this stage I didnt know what I was gonna do with it, as i Had Kurgan and altho he had short comings, I didnt really give the cb1000 a look in.

Suffice to say it stayed in the back of the transit, till I need the van for disco bookings.

as can be seen, its looking the worse for ware, but ive spent the last few months tidying up the workshop and selling a lot of my GS1000 stuff off, as something started to stir and I kept looking at a bike, that I was givem but in all honesty I hated!

It wasnt my style but then that horrible gut feeling hit me and I knew something was gonna rise from this wreck!

But WHat! I just didnt know. and If I am honest with myself the water coolled engine scared me shitless

Anyway - the bikes still outside and April rolls up and a chance post sees me buying another cb1000 Big One for not a lot of Money, but with a lot of bits I am gonna need :)

I knew the engine on mine was seized and several other bits were seized or in rough condition, so a load of beer tokens later and this is delivered all the way from devon somewhere :)

I had only just put a floor in and as can be seen the workshop build is still in progress!

So Space is tight.

Febuary 2012 arrives and the donor CB1000 has been stripped of its engine for mine, and many other useful parts.

I start to put all the parts i dont want with it including my seized engine plus another engine thats a runner.

Anyway theres loads of bits in boxes so I put it on Ebat at 399.00 and it dont sell. two days later get a message offer me 500. cash for it all.

So he comes round takes a look at the frame and just hands me the money, a happy bunny half hour later and its all loaded up in his van and hes on his way. ( hes now rebuilt it and its on the road, he often nipps round as he says I am his first port of call if he needs anything :) )

Pic 4 - some drilling soon cures this.
