    1981 Honda CB900 Custom... Bought it from a German dude who got it from a priest. It's a little old which is good because I'm still new and already almost dropped it. The engine is a fucking beast (inline 4) with 10 gears (5 hi and 5 lo) a shaft drive and a top speed of around 150.

    The picture is the only one I have from the add on Craigslist...

    Over the Summer it's going to be rebuilt, chopped, repainted and ridden from LA to Seattle and back...

    Good to hear it's being repainted. I'm laughing at the thought of a preist cruising the school zones on a purple cruiser.

    Not really, it's a lot like riding a very large, very fast bicycle...

    Thanks everyone, I'm excited.

    The bike was $900, which I think is decent for the shape it's in and the priest only got it up to 38k which is good...

    It sounds very "motorcycley" but in a japanese way, it doesn't rattle as much as a harley, but it's got a nice throaty exhaust note. Picture Nina Simone with a very bad cold.

    I'm not exactly sure what the budget for chopping and painting is. If everything goes as planned I'll do it myself at my buddy's body shop. Right now the plan is to do it a black pearl shade and then to either powdercoat or use high-temp flat-black on most of the engine components similar to the Harley Night Train.

    I'll definitely come back on when I start the process and let you know about the progress. And probably to beg Steve Austin for advice...

    On another note my grandfather already made fun of me about the sissy bar. It's only 4 bolts holding it on, it will be on ebay as soon as possible. If I have to hear "sissy bars are for girls" or "it's so cute you can take your girlfriend around with you..." one more time I'm going to develop a complex.

    damn thats things ugly......glad you only paid 900 for her

    Im sure its going to look real nice after you put some work into it...
    I would probably do alittle bit of engine work since it has so many miles
    like adjust the valves
    and do a complete tune-up
    flush out the whole system

    good luck with fixing it up.....make sure you post the progress pics

    I purchased a sporty a while ago and am thinking about getting one of those chop kits but I havent decided if I want to do that or chop it for real. I just dont know what the cost will be to actually chop up the frame. If I could do it my self I would but I dont have the know how or the tools. I have imaging that will cost you at least 4grand with all the paint and labor in chopping the fram. Do you know what Rake you are going to turn it into?
