'73 CB250 - Doing it right this time round.
« on: Apr 30, 2012, 20:36:05 »
Hi guys, quick intro.

Im Charlie, 20 years old from Cornwall in the UK.

Here's my 1973 CB250 :)... May be giving it a facelift, not sure about changing it completely or going for the full vintage honda racer look with the yellow fairing flashes.

It doesn't look that pink in person, is a relatively deep red. Custom fairing.

Excuse my face in the pictures, not too sure what happened there! haha

Cheers guys, yeah it should pull when sorted. Rubber intake boots on the carbs have perished slightly so its letting too much air in and isn't running right. Need to straighten the fairing up a tad too, that's also not sitting right, but other than that I'm pleased with it as it is. :D

After following Ringo's CB550 build which looks AMAZING, I started to look into a Gulf scheme. Not wanting to copy and wanting it to look a little different to the original blue and orange, i stumbled upon this and am tempted to repspray it in the same style....what d'you guys think?

Nice scoot. Whered the fairing come from?
The faces of the damned
And all the butchered lambs
If I had to do it over
I just would've done it slower

haha Im 20 but I look about 12 lol...decided to by myself a bike for my birthday, best present Ive ever got! :D haha

The fairing was made to fit onto another bike but Im not too sure what it was, its been modified slightly to fit but it isn't perfectly straight at the moment, still needs some tinkering! Was trying to Photoshop the design onto another image of the bike but cant decide whether to paint the fairing or keep it plain and silver...

yeah imo fairings are not cool Unless you go full blown vintage racer look. I'd loose the bulk of that frnt fender too. I am battling myself as to go fenderless or not currently as well.

yeah this was the only front end I could photoshop in so the fender had to stay...was thinking of a slightly bobbed fender because I want to run a 'pedestrian cutter' number plate....but I do like the look of no fender, just a brace...
