This is my first motorcycle rebuild. It is a '75 frame with an old '72 500 motor (boy those 500 clutches are tricky to dial in) Wish I could find a before picture...it was in very poor shape. Its a little bit better off now...Had a great time learning the in's and out's of this bike, although quite a bit of it was learned the hard-way...

This is my 1976 CB550K with a couple of it's garage mates. It just went over 6500 miles today, it is totally original except the tires.

My fathers 4500 original mile '74 550...and my brother has 2 '76's. Being the "in-house mechanic" for all of the family's bikes, I kinda consider them mine... :)

 Wykydtron in the foreground, OldSchool's in the back!

Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lot’s of things. You’ve been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. It’s having the right attitudes that’s hard.

The first picture is what the bike looks like now. I've since painted the pipes and will wrap them with Thermo-Tec heat wrap soon. The final picture is what it looked like when I first got it. I've got a green tank on the way from e-bay and some new seals coming in to stop those damn oil leaks!   :D

Oh yea, and I bent my handle bars putting the bike up on it's center stand, so I have new bars coming too.
