Re: Paintitallred CB550

Pics of tonight's progress. I didn't spend much time down there. I took jsjamboree's pointer and sorted the rear fender so my wife isn't the fender like my last 550 haha. It's roughly 4-5" longer.

Also did the final trim on the front. Now to take it all apart and powder the upper bracket and lower brace. I didn't feel like firing everything up tonight so maybe tomorrow.

I like it. If it's not spoken for, I'd take it off your hands. Pm me if so.
I officially have a replacement. Do you want this red cover?

Took it out on its first shake down. Had to stop a few times to adjust the rear brake. Front sticks a little. Runs pretty good. Still needs some adjustments. Fender bolts didn't get tightened down enough and the nuts fell off two of the four. Front wheel has a vibration that I need to figure out. Might need trued. It felt great though.

Starting the cleaning process. I'll spend the next couple of nights cleaning every crack and nook on this bike. I use this time to really examine everything. I usually catch a few minor things and adjust from there. It's good bonding time and helps keep me on the road verses the side waiting to be picked up.

Remember that one time your shift lever fell off and we had to zip tie it to the bike to finish our trip to the thaw.

Very cool! I like how the rear frame loop curves up over the fender, nice touch.
Yeah, it's nice. Works great for the wife and it's a good tie down.

Re: Paintitallred CB550

Took some pics in the yard today. I really did t expect to enjoy this bike as much as I do. I was getting bored of things and this one has brought me back into it.

Re: Paintitallred CB550

All I need is a new seat and I'll be satisfied with this. If you have a clean 550 seat please let me know.
