cb450 > cb500t hybrid – part 2

2021 update – click here. Below is deprecated info…

– Spot painted the frame with a few coats of Rustoleum. I used a rust neutralizer spray first. I don’t care enough to take every little thing off and paint it legit. This is good enough in my opinion.

– Wiring harness is at Ricky and Adam’s garage. Going to do the custom, bare-bones harness build on tuesday or wednesday night.

Check back in for more pics after this weekend.

The engine bolts right in. Should have a bit more torque. 1975 500t engine. 24,000 miles on it. Get dirty. Step […]
