I'm sure there is a thread somwhere that we can post cool bikes we've *spotted*, but I couldnt find it ???

This old girl is a 1979 cb400 with a whiskey bottle fuel gauge and what looks to be an all custom frame.

pretty neat! ;D

All custom frame? Looks like a stock frame with the rear section chopped off to me.

Than he chopped the front too. cuz there was diamond plate all over the head stock or I guess he could've just braced it? Not real familiar with the 400 frames and those shock mounts dont look factory?

Hence "What Looks To Be?" ;D

the louvered fender is an interesting choice. I guess if you want to ensure that road spray/dirt go straight into your face, that's one way to do it.

Therapy is expensive. Riding is cheap. You decide.

Love the chopper style bar risers... with the bars upside down :eek:
I second the :eek: on the bars, why can't people just drop the 50 bucks on a set of clubmans, or even some low rise bars that don't look like ass...

It's not yours 'til you cut it up.
I love it even with the dodgy bars, louvres, everything. I reckon it's an older chop but damn it's good.

Here's another I **spotted** outside the boat show here in Austin the other day.

This is what lots of ours would have looked like 20yrs ago..::)

Old thread im going to resurrect.
Cool bikes that could also fit in the inspiration thread. Will post there also.

First a real Indian Larry a the astars VIP party for the Austin MotoGP. Also had a the seesee cycles cafe on the wall.

Third pic is a cb550 that took best in show at the first Austin moto fest which was the same weekend as GP.

Definitely a GS - possibly an "L" model too judging by how the seat rails are relatively low in relation to the carbs / head.
