    A kid in town is selling his 1975 CB125 to me next week. It's gonna need a carb, exhaust, shift shaft, kick shaft and a lot of cleaning. Theoretically, it just needs a carb to start, but they mentioned the plug tip is broke off in the head so I'm thinking new piston maybe.



    Anyhow I'm just turning out to be a little bike kinda guy and wanted to share my restoration process with you guys. If you've got any bikes from way back when, I'd love to see them.

    1976 CB550f mid-cafe conversion. Seat is being test-fit in this pic.

    Currently it's all taken apart.

    69 electra glide and 87 heritage softtail that sit about 20 feet off the ground above my dad's shop.

    1942 indian 442. one of a small few left in this condition. value around 65k.











    another indian, not as rare though











    1954 harley davidson 50th anniversary edition. the 100th anniversary model was a 2003, so they lost a year somewhere....

    Those are some nice bikes! Here are some mid 70's 400 Fours for you. These are my brother's passion. One restored to showroom condition, one tricked out and the other in progress as a cafe' bike. A great deal of the components on the last two are all custom machined.

    Good stuff guys. Keep em coming. Here's a pic of the thing I've got to contend with. It'll be a do-it-when-i-can kinda project but I couldn't pass up on the deal.

    You planning on restoring or customizing? Looks like it has some good potential for either.

    Well I'm not sure I like the cafe look people always go for so the shape will stay the same. Color scheme will probably change, though. I'm a big fan of flat black but I might do something more dazzling.



    I'm open to suggestions.

    I saw a few good CB125's modded on a website I belong to. Either option is out of my skill/price range though.



    I read that the metalwork for this one was forged in a backyard bonfire. Very do-it-yourself.







    The cafe seat conversion for this one is a whopping $250 on ebay.



    Still they look great either way. I'd probably prefer to chop and bob it if I had any idea how to work with metal.

    i have a 78cb125 . it was a daily commuter for about 2 years.it currently sits needing a good rebuild. i painted it flat black and cut about half the thickness out of the seat foam. i will try to find a pick.



    good luck they are good bikes. shawn
