Selling my 1977 CB550f Brat Bike.
Finished my project. Ridden it for several months. Ready to start a new project. This thing has been stripped down to frame and rebuilt. Price is negotiable but only a little.
Powder coat frame - Gloss Black
Mercedes Canyon Brown Paint on tank
Hand made brat style seat, quite comfortable (put approximately 3000 miles on it since build)
Upgraded from points to Dyna ignition
Shorai Battery - Lithium Iron
LED rear turn signal and break light
Front turn signals integrated into 7" headlight. Picked up from revival cycles locally
Powder coat gloss black spokes
New vintage style levers and front brake master cylinder. Front break stops well now (rear drums are always just kind of average)
RD250 Turn signal switch w/ horn and hi/low switch for light.
Carbs full rebuild and tune and a complete tune up done by Limey Bikes. (Limey only works on vintage japanese bikes)
Delkevic 4into1 Exhaust
Progressive Brand Progressive fork springs and new seals and dust boots.
New Front Brake Vintage Style Master Cylinder and matching clutch and brake levers (not pictured)
Drop in LED Headlight - Not Pictured, much brighter and better visibility
Things to note.
You will want to swap mirrors. I only have them on there to pass inspection (which it passed a few months ago). The ones on there are not great. Most people only put one mirror on. This is a personal choice and will be totally up to you.
This is a vintage bike. It will not be gas and go, it will require maintenance more than a modern bike. If you are not aware of this or cannot afford it then don't bother. This isn't the bike for you. I have far more in this bike than what I am asking, and I am totally fine with that as it was worth it for the project and the fun.
This bike has been seen at the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, Revival Cycles Shop, and all over town. Here is your chance to own a true custom vintage bike. I have put close to 3k miles on this since it was completed.
I DO NOT need help selling. I will ONLY sell locally (you come to me). You CANNOT test ride without full asking price in cash in my hand. No cashiers check, no email, text or phone call only. I am happy to negotiate once you have come to look at it. I will not waste your time, please don't waste my time.
