CB125 b6 little caferacer from Portugal
« on: Feb 13, 2015, 13:56:27 »
Hello guys, as the title says this is a project about a little cb125 that had a lot of rust and dust.

I have this bike for 3 years now, i road it and had fun with it until i decided what i realy wanted to do with it.
So i spent the last one and a half years dismanteling, scrubing, cleaning, imagining, designing, cuting, painting and now finally assembling the bike back together.

To do List:
Refurbish the engine;
Powder coat frame and other pieces;
Make new and simpler electric harness;
Change the front cable disc brake for an oil one;
Change the front suspention for one from a cb250;
Buy new rear shocks;
Change the indicator lights, break light;
Change the filters;
Upholster the seat;
and so on.....

It's turning into a small and practical Café Racer


Inspiration


First stage: dismanteling






Next Step: send de engine for a refurbish at the mecanic, frame and other pieces for the sand blast.

The engine came from the mechanic.
It looks good.


Frame and other pieces came from the powder coating.


Tank and hubs are done, still to come the rims will be painted black.

Finished the Wheels, trimed and laced.


Here they are with the tires


The Engine is in the frame, now I have to fit the cb250 front suspention into the the frame, which will take some new bearings and spacers to center the wheel.

By the way, while waiting for the spacers to be made, i refurbished and gave a bit of paint to the carbs.

Good luck with the build! Looks like its going to be a fun little bike to blast around the small windy roads of Portugal in.

Back wheel fitted just fine with new sprockets front and back.
The seat is the same but reupholstered cafe racer style!!


Managed to fit the cb250 suspention, now it just needs the spacers to center the front wheel.
Also assembled the new drag bar, new light/winker/horn switch, brake and clutch levers, acelerator and front light. All fits well. ;D

Is this the sought after 16hp engine with the lumpy cam? Nice work.

Looks good, those wheels are especially clean looking.  Think I need to give mine a once over!

So I decided to do the electrical part myself and it was very tricky(its my first).

After a lot of head bangging, specially with the blinkers everything is working just fine.

Electrical things still left to test is the charging system because i haven't started the bike for the first time yep(hope to do it next weekend).

Here are a couple of pictures of her.




List to Finish:

New rear Shocks;
New exaust;
finish the rear fender;
finish the rearsets.
