cb500t seat part 1 of 3

This is the beginning of my solo seat on my cb500t. I’m going for a super low, slim and minimal seat that fits with the curves of the tank. Cutting out paper templates to get certain measurements. Laid out the design on 16 gauge sheet metal. muscled some bends. Stance

bare metal tank

Based on some things I’ve been seeing lately from Adam and Shinya, I’ve been psyched on the bare metal look. I think it fits my 650 well. The 650 is a little rough around the edges and sounds nasty with the pod filters and 4-1 exhaust. So the raw metal tank with a few minor […]

front end done

ss brake line

Replaced the shitty oem rubber/solid pipe with a stainless brake line from Max. Huge thanks to him for hooking me up with it. had to trim a spare banjo bolt to make it work but i’m real happy with the results. this should really improve my marginal braking power. THANKS MAX!!!

s2000 VS snow

yea… my s2000 is an earlier AP2 which means it has no traction control. For those of you who didn’t know… the s2000 is rear-wheel drive and mine has g-force sport tires, which are awesome sticky summer tires. So… snow VS the s2000…. – snow wins by a long shot Some dickface piled all their […]

Adam on my cb450

looking emo on the cb450. This was when my bro-in-law still had the 450. The summer he first got it. Now he has a sick Ducati monster.
