2-stroke preferred, 4-stroke ok, title preferred but not nescessary. Barn condition ok, would prefer running at least. Let me know what you have.

been there done that. Used to race a rd400. had around 80 hp when i was done with it. Not looking for that. Looking for style and and an excuse to form some sheet metal.

Cool. I hear that. :thumb: I'll keep my eyes open for something interesting.


This is what I hope my current bike project will become:

I have 2 of them plus a pile of spares. With the extras, I might build something like this:

This is a CL450 Scrambler, not a CB. This could make a good platform. You're welcome to take mine for a spin if you want to get a feel for what these motors are like (if you aren't already familiar with early 450 DOHC twins).

well, got something lined up. 82 yamaha seca 550. I am partial to yamahoppers, and this is a great motor. Needs a tank and seat. I am going to see what tank I can fit on there - want something biggish, like maybe an H1 or like a ducati sport classic. we'll see.

I may be able to stick fzr forks in it too. I have a 17" duck wheel that bolts right up to fzr forks.. hmmm
