Winter project CB550
« on: Nov 06, 2012, 15:13:32 »
After finishing the last one at the end of summer I picked up a non running CB550 to build up. Hopefully this one goes faster than the last.


Found it way out in west va. The guy I bought it from said he had title then never found it so ill be having fun with DMV for a few months. Bike only has 14k miles so its semi clean.

After seeing this post, I just went through all 22 pages of your 750 build.  Amazing work done.  I cant wait to see how this one turns out.  Very nice work man.

So I had to get the monster running and now I've moved on to the 550.
Few hours later...

Looking good man!  What is the front end from? Any machining necessary to fit it?

I've ordered the allballsbearings. I just have fork tossed in there now. It's a gsxr 1000 front end

Right on man...I am very interested to see how this turns out.  I have toyed with the idea of doing an inverted front end.

im at the same stage just fitting my 07 gsxr 600 front end on my bike as well.. i havent put it together completely with the all balls kit cause i need the frame sand blasted still, but seems like the stem is going to be a little long. thoughts?

I should have the bearings in Friday so maybe sometime after the holiday I can throw them on and see how it fits. It's actually a 07-08 front end
