    I need to make my '78 CB550 legal - chain guard, horn

    Hey there, I need a few odds and ends to make my CB550 legal for my road test. Does anyone have a chain guard and a horn kicking around for sale or to borrow? I'm between Owen Sound and Guelph, Ontario. I haven't been on the board for a while...but I'm sure there are folks on here to...

    '78 CB550k Motion Pro throttle cables - WTF/sanity check

    I ordered a set of push/pull cables for my 1978 Honda CB550k from a reputable shop that caters to the vintage UJM world. The part numbers are 02-0007 for the pull and 02-0008 for the push. When trying to install the pull, the inner cable appears to be at least 3cm too short. I can easily slip...

    Boot Split

    I have a pair of get-a-grip blundstone-type boots. They're great and were only $40. I wish I could get another pair.

    Boot Split

    I have the rubber on the shift. It's just these boots. Chippewa said to send them back to the store for an exchange/refund...but it's an online store and the post office is on strike. Ughhghghghggghh. Thanks for the sanity check. At least I know that I'm not just riding like a moron.

    Boot Split

    I grabbed a new pair of Chippewa engineer boots (model 27899). They're steel toe and marketed as bike boots. I've been riding with them for a week now but the left toe is started to split. When I shift gears, the shifter makes contact with my foots just below the steel toe. The downward...

    Let's see your riding boots

    Amazing. I have a pair of 6" moc toes that I love...although I don't ride in them. The Beckmans are super nice. Are they just like Gentleman Travelers? I'm on my way out to buy a new pair of 11" Chippewa steel toe engineer boots. Wish me luck!
