My first hard tail bobber build: 1974 CB200
« on: Mar 03, 2011, 13:33:03 »
Well, I figured I'd give it a shot.  The bike was free and the motor was frozen.  New rings on the way from Canada for the motor.  I think I'll do a tribute to dirt with this project and make it a dirt bike, road bike hybrid.  Here's what I got so far.  I think I'll be using the tank as is.  It's a little rat but I like it.

I like where your going with the center section, nice and strong!  Is that a fire barrel in your garage?
With a true champion face to face with his darkest hour, will do whatever it takes to rise above. A man fights, and fights, and then fights some more. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies.

And my ass ainít no pussy. My ass is a f*cking champion.

Thanks guys. It's gonna be interesting.  My thoughts are a 2000 and newer Suzuki RM85 front end (inverted forks, disk brakes, nice and strong), strech the frame 3 or 4 inches, drop it a couple.  Trials tire in rear and knobby in front.  HID offroad style headlight.  Here is my inspiration for the build and the front end I'll be using. 
 


 

 

 
And no that's not a burn barrel.  It's an outdoor fireplace.  Keeps the shop nice and warm during these cold Oregon winters.
