    BSA Lightning Bobber

    Doing a little window shopping on FB marketplace last week and ran across this hard tail BSA. The seller said he'd had it a few months and had been riding it but couldn't get it to start any more and it's not getting spark. The ad said he was interested in trades so I offered up my CB550. He...

    CB550 Bobber-Junkyard Dog

    I've always wanted a hard tail bobber chopper. Last week I saw this hard tail frame on the local CL. Seller said he was selling it because the motor had locked up and he'd gone on to different things, it had a CB500 motor in it. I happen to have CB550 that I was working on making a cafe racer...

    Bike for an amputee

    So I have a friend who lost an arm just above the elbow a few years ago. He contacted me the other day about modifying a motorcycle so he can ride again. Right now he plans on moving the throttle to the left and using one hand for the throttle and clutch then making some kind of linked brake...

    '78 CB550 -correct firing position at full advance?

    The previous owner of my CB550 installed a full Dyna 2000 ignition on it. The one that not only replaces the points but also get's rid of the advance mechanism and controls ignition electronically. It also has a few spark advance curve settings. Maybe over kill for this little bike but hey, it's...

    1978 CB550 not charging

    First off, yes I know there are a bunch of threads related to this but so far I haven't found one that helps solve my problem. Second off, this my bike does not have a stock wiring harness. PO rewired the whole bike and installed a solid state R/R. The bike will crank and run but doesn't seem...

    1976 Honda GL1000

    I've been watching this thing sit under the carport of a house up the street from me for almost a year now and I've really been needing a bigger bike for two up trips. The girlfriend has never been happy with the back seat on my Thruxton. I deliver pizza part time while I'm in school and just...

    What's a good price on a CB350? Opinions sought.

    This is on the ATL Craigslist. Think I'm gonna call the guy in the morning. Does this seem like a decent price? Of course I don't plan on paying his asking price.

    Anyone north of Atlanta?

    I just came back from Barber and it was a blast. I know there are lots of cool motorcycle happenings around Atlanta but I don't often have the money/time to attend that stuff. I'm up here in Rome and it's a bit of a ride to even get down to Kennesaw. Anyone located up here in the boonies like me...

    Damned Wiring!

    Dammit, I hate electrical issues! I thought I would treat a fried regulator as an excuse to replace my hacked up wiring with a decent stock harness. It's turning from a simple plug and play job to a dammed pain in the ass! I may have been sold the wrong harness and/or am missing some parts of...

    GL1000 clutch problem- I think.

    My brother just got a 78 GL1000 the other day. I took it for a spin and noticed the front end was pretty mushy and when I got back there was some sort of oil on the tank. I noticed that there are a couple of set screws (?) in the top of the forks and when I compress the forks oil seeps out of...
