    Take 2: CB750K2 Steampunk(ish) Bobber Thing

    Re: Take 2: CB750K2 Steampunk Bobber Thing Wow, just wow. By the comments on the other thread, you'd think you were beating Paul Hogan with a chain. Please post many pictures of frame-cutting goodness, and smash your leftover stock parts with a hammer.

    Small Bike on a Small Budget

    I'm using fine blasting sand (-20 grade) as media, and the cheap HF spot blaster you see on the compressor. (red tank) It works great, and the sand is only $5 a bag at a local shop. Yeah the stock disc is not great, the looks are it's best feature. If you want the look of a disc just go...

    Small Bike on a Small Budget

    Blast Off! My $15 compressor. Blasts great! Blasted most of the frame, wheels, misc parts. Parts getting primed. I'm using rattle can self etching primer, but I plan to paint it with regular auto paint and my dad's nice paint gun. Getting some controls together.

    Small Bike on a Small Budget

    Small Bike on a Small Budget

    Parts! From China! Thanks Tommy Wang! I want to mount that headlight as far back as possible, and figure out where I want the signals. No decision on color yet, other than black engine, frame, and wheels. I really need to blast the frame and swingarm as soon as it's not freezing cold.

    Small Bike on a Small Budget

    Updates! I've made some progress, still a lot of cleaning to go. I'm thinking drag bars, a DCC 1.9" speedo installed in the headlight bucket, and lots of black. No fenders, just a fork brace up front. I'm going to fiberglass a cafe seat, and maybe plasma cut some rear set hardware on my...

    Greetings From Oklahoma!

    Hello DTT from Tulsa, OK! I'm Joe. I've lived in Oklahoma my entire life, and I've been riding bikes since I was 14. Today I own an '06 YZ450F for playing in the dirt, and I've started my first cafe project on my old '75 CB125S. I'm a very experienced fabricator and engineer with lots of fancy...

    Small Bike on a Small Budget

    So after 15 years, I'm exhuming it and making it my first real bike project. My plans so far are to build a great little town bike for my short commute. Questions so far: One fork is seized. I have it soaking in PB Blaster now and got it to move slightly, but I think it's done for. What is...

    Small Bike on a Small Budget

    Greetings DTT! This is my first post, first bike project, and first cafe racer. I'm excited to dig out a bike I enjoyed when I was a teenager. It's a '75 CB125S that my dad bought for me when I was 14 or 15. It was really nice when I first got it, and I put most of the 3100 miles on it. But...
