Hey all,

New to the forum, been hanging out reading for several months now, very impressed with the knowledge contained within this forum. Have already learned allot here and cannot get over some of the builds I've seen here and how encouraging so many of the members are to guys building their bikes. Very cool to see.

I'm currently riding a late model Honda CB1100 that I have mild cafe plans for in the upcoming months. I picked the bike up used, and it went down by the original owner, so I've put my efforts so far in righting all the mechanical issues it suffered when it went down. Those behind me, now I'm planning to start on the cafe aesthetics. I have a pile of new parts ready to go on in the next few weeks, will post some photos along the way. I attached a picture of my current starting point with the bike.

Looking forward to hanging out and seeing more cool builds along the way.

Cheers!

Welcome. Nice base for your build. I like the paint work. Hope it didn't get damaged when the bike went down.

Hey Brodie,

No damage to the body what-so-ever. Tweaked the Handlebars, Clutch Lever, LH Turn Signals and Scraped the LH Engine Cover. All has been repaired and is now as it should be. Looking forward to diving in deeper now.

Welcome. Getting the bike right before modding is wise. From an ex-pat buckeye (born in Mt. Vernon).

Welcome to the fold. I live up in Galion, work in Marion and like @pidjones I also lived in Mt.Vernon for a minute. @ridesolo is over in Bucyrus and @Chuck78 and @Drey6 are in c-bus. You landed in a great place here.

I have a pretty well equipt home shop (mill, lathe, tig welder) if you run into a pickle or need a hand. Also search "Columbus area vintage motorcycle group" over on Facebook, if your on there that is. It's full of a bunch of really rad ppl.
