Colin’s 1974 cb200 in NZ
If you didn’t already know, Max has cousins from Auckland. His cousin Colin and I live pretty close to eachother here in NZ… couple mins down the road. A few months back he picked up a cb200 and rebuilt it into this sweet little cafe racer.
It’s finally running and now he’s dialing it in.
It was a pretty big jollapy when he first got it. He rebuilt the engine… the entire engine.
Seat kinda similar to my cb450 seat, but a tiny bit more slim. Red tank. Powder coated frame. Clip-on bars.
New Mikuni carbs and velocity stacks. They need a tiny bit more tuning. Still working on getting the jetting perfect.
This is Colin’s other cycle. A cg125 single cylinder that he’s teaching his g/f Gabby to ride.
This is a link to his full build thread if you wanna check out all the nitty-gritty stuff he did.
Side note – Colin is moving to LA in a couple weeks to race road bikes (geared pedal bikes) professionally for the next 6 months. Good luck.
