weird so originally I thought it looked weird so u went and bought a gsxr front end a wider rear wheel thinking such a skinny rear tire made the back end look funny, now I'm realizing a 17" rear wheel with 160 tire would be way smaller than the 18 and might look more goofy especially since my rear shocks are longer than stock. too late I already bought the rear rim and don't know what to do

Wheels look good to me. a fat 17" rear wheel will make a much steeper lean angle required for cornering. i'm not sure how you plan on riding this thing but ground clearance in a turn is already limited on these old bikes.

it's all relative I guess. I think this bike will stay true to being a "CAFE" racer, I have my supermoto for otherwise but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't be doing any spirited riding once in a while with the CB.

Beautiful! Does the position of the rear sets is comfortable? Isn't it a bit high?

You know I completely forgot about this thread, Iíve been on and off working on it as I couldnít get the bike to idle right. Currently getting that sorted out. However, between the last update and now, I did slap on the 17ís, put a gsxr front end on it, had to get the new controls wired up, moved the rearsets forward, figure out how to mount the headlight, and in the midst of getting it up and running switched over to a Pamco ignition. These are pictures from when I got married last year. Of course the bike came to the venue!
