You forgot about skinny jeans, baby tee's, Brycreem hair-do's and gauntlet bracelets ... :doh:I think the cafe racer hipsters have killed the market for older honda's... There is no rhyme or reason why older Cb's and the like are going for the money they are. Well in my area atleast. The only thing I can think of is the "new flannel, vintage leather jacket, repo vintage 3/4 bass boat sparkle helmet, chuck T shoe wearing, bandanna around chain side ankle wearing hipsters" are willing to pay for these bikes so they can go profile at the local starbucks without putting in the time to make the bike their's...
i read through his build on the barnbuildercafe website, I'm not sure english is his first language.there is plenty of clearance between the wheel and exhaust headers. I already tried compressing them all the way with no issue-i built 2 exhaust systems-and in order to clear the radiator it has to be positioned right in between radiator and wheel.
You forgot to mention the monshock conversion that has a good 12" of stock, unbraced swingarm hanging out back of a lower shock mounting location that was never intended for that swingarm. And a rear drive housing (shaft drive bike) that was originally supported by the shock, now placing all its weight on the 4 small bolts that secure it to the swing arm.$9K for a bike where the front wheel will lock itself on the headers under hard braking.
Yeah sure - I'll take a dozen….
