Honda CB500 – Progress Post
This is my husband’s “baby” at the moment. We originally bought this 1972 CB500 around April of last year, this is a project the boys have been working on in between the cafes and other restorations. This bike has custom everything even the rear frame mounts are custom designed (by myself). The following photos are a series over the past year:
The bike before the frame was cut up.
Something’s missing right? Like the whole back of the bike?
Fitting the frame.
The new rear end.
Note the custom rear brackets!
Does it look like a bike yet?
Mock up. Apes or drag bars? That is the question.
Tank and fender back from paint!
Now it’s starting to look good! Fresh black paint on the frame. Looks like the inverted clubmans won!
