I thought I'd start adding pictures and info about what I'm doing. I bought a CB400F that had already been modified to resemble vintage cafe racer style. The seat was already done and the battery compartment had already been opened up.
1.Powder coating hubs and lacing them with aluminum rims
2.I have a second motor I currently disassembling that will be getting the big bore kit and yoshi exhaust
3.I am making my own rearsets
4.I'm looking for different levers/master cyclinder/buttons and what have ya to clean up the front end.
I'm also going to replace every bolt or part that I can to make the bike as vintage looking as possible but with new technology. Some vintage aspects will be passed on for the sake of better performance/ handling.
I'm totally new to working on motorcycles but not riding. I've ridden since I was about 12 but I've never really had a bike that I wanted to customize.
