I think it is in too good of shape to tear into.I did change the turn signal pods. They were too comical . The king/queen seat reminds me of something that should be on the back of Trigger ...The smooth Euro seat looks much better.

So, the question is, are you going to leave it alone or, or is it really not a project?

I have a history.... I bought the fastest motorcycle Harley Davidson had ever built at the time, a 1983 XR1000 and tore into it at 500 miles (it came with a disclaimer "No Warranty", so that wasn't an issue), did the same with Fords fastest to that time, my 2004 Mustang Cobra (it did have a warranty, but what the heck)... It doesn't have to be a botched-up mess to become a project!

You nailed it Ray. It's tenacity as a trait that trumps all others. Even ability is overshadowed by tenacity and perseverance. I learned from the video. Never saw a tire installation like that. He built his own tube mandrel. The shop isn't anything but a shed. This kid builds a lot of bikes, do he must not have problems selling them.

The Brickhouse Build video is great, having the vision to conceive the total build, each individual component, and the ability to bring it all to realization is a rare but not impossible, tenancy and perseverance is what it takes. It shows what can be done with limited facilities.

Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can!

The 83 650C is a limited run. Most are 500's. The 650 looks the same,,however the engine was redesigned from the ground up. After they aced the design,,they dropped it in favor of the cruiser market. The shadow and such.  Even more scarce is the hundred horse 650 Turbo. The sad thing is,,the trendy thing to do is transform these into non-functioning art. It's unreal . But,,there are some young fabricators out there that are doing a bang-up job in transforming them into mobile art. They love turning them to mono instead of lay-downs. I'm glad to see that the building of cool things lives on ..

Congratulations on one helluva score! I've wanted one of those for years, and check Marketplace and CL regularly but never saw one worth driving for. THAT bike was worth driving for. ;)

I have a 1980 Honda 500 Custom sitting in my shed. 1st year I believe with water cooled and shaft drive.
Complete bike. Always thought I would make time to restore it. Haven’t found time yet. Unfortunately.
