The time has come...
 
The walrus said, to get my CB900 out of bed. Yes, I have finally managed to finish the CB900 and get it on the road, the story for those who don't know goes like this...


I swaped my GPZ750R

for this Hodna CB900 C American custom, 900cc shaft drive with a 10 speed hi lo ratio gear box, every one told me i was mad

But i had plans... :D out came the grinder and the bits box, after chopping and changeing things to suit Its first guise looked like this...

Then as time went on it eventualy looked like this...

Then on the 25th of January 2005 i was run off the road smashing the lights, engine casing ripping off a foot peg bending the bars and buckling both wheels.

Well three years later and after some cutting fabrication and welding, replacement wheels bars etc etc i have created this, and i have to say i am quite pleased with the out come....

Excellent job, just looks 'right' if you know what I mean. :cool:

Thanks guys, i am just glad to be back on the road TBH, i havnt ridden since November :mad: .

I did have a lovely skull rear light but the original shocks were shagged and the rear wheel trashed it, hence the large light space with a dinky LED light.

But the Harley sportster rear shocks i have fitted sorted that and jacked the rear a tad too.

The bars are Blackjack specials, as are the cans :cool: .. Cheers dude !

The tyres are ****e, they are too hard and the profile is too flat for my liking so they will be moved on once cash permits.

the seat is also to be changed, it was designed for an earlier look which i changed again but couldnt afford to have the seat done again.

Well i know a man with a tree stump who just loves to beat his sheet :eek:... metal that is ! :D

Not that you would need a tree stump to make a seat base, unless you have an ass like a melon that is.... ! :rolleyes:
