I've joked about it a couple times, but never did it.

On this topic...

 

I'm not sure if you all remember, but last year I picked up a stellar vintage Honda CB 350.

I'm the third owner and found out that the original owner is a lawyer here in Cleveland. I've reached out to him several times to try to get back story but no luck. I'm so anxious to find out the history of the bike (and ask if he has any others ;)).

My next bike will be cafe, but this one is totally original down to the pipes (which I'm learning never happens). Going to 'restore' this one as much as I can.

That's just how they're made. I have 2 of them like that.  But that one would fit me too if you don't want it ;)

@Bahljs 

That CB350 is amazing. I absolutely love bikes like that for the city and even for hitting country back roads. Are you learning to wrench on it too? Oil changes, brake jobs, carb cleaning, etc? There's something about those old standard japanese bikes that is just truly special. I love the analog tach. I'd love to own one someday when I have the time/space/money for two bikes. 

 

Wait, holy crap. Yours has less than 10k miles on it? That is amazing. What a freaking find!


I bought a bike last summer too and I've been tinkering with it. This is what it looks like now.

These shoes are so mismatched.  I have no actual experience handling the skins of the ____ .  (I do know what it is though) Are they often this mismatched because of where they take the skin from?  These actually look like they could be two shoes from different pairs.  For those of you with more experience with this animal, is this common?

SV650?

I have the same bike but half faired. All black with a red seat. It's been great - had it for 3 years now.

Must be the cool thing...so I'll post mine, thrift funded.  This picture is a little old, I've gotten rid of the big rear fender now and did a couple other minor things.

Yup, got it last year. Still have less than 7k miles on it. Unreal.

Need to do a fender eliminator (have the parts) and a few other things in the next couple of weeks like a usb charger and maybe get handguards for the wind when it's cooler out. I used to have heated grips on it but ripped them off when I was doing the front end swap because they were glued on. Stupid move. They were awesome.

 

Still hoping to take another road trip on it. I need to get a different exhaust for it because this is too damn loud for me...I have one sitting at home that I need to figure out how to get on (it's off a gsxr), but a guy on a sv group wanted to trade me for his so I'm waiting for it to get here.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

You'd kill me if you knew what I paid.

 

Luckily for me, the previous owner rebuilt carbs, changed oil, cleaned gas tank, all that. 

 

I seriously lucked out and the bike will hands down be the best find ever. Thanks Craigslist (and having cash on hand).
