'79cb650 627cc with 45k+ miles.
'81cb650c 652cc(w/'79 head/cam&carbs, '61mm 750 stocker pistons, slightly modified)
'81cb650std 0cc... in sad shape... really, really sad shape.



I'm planning on boring one of these rides out to either 740cc's or 752cc's(65mm, or 65.5mm).
All depends on funds i guess!

Here's my 80 CB650 that I layed down yesterday!!! Just a little road rash on the arm, rolled it off pretty good. I was only going 10MPH and hit some gravel on a turn. Was watching all day for it!!! Could have been worse. Beautiful days in WNY watch out for the gravel ;) Anyone have an extra turning signal ;D I'm also looking for a seat..

Here is the '81 custom I bought for my wife in March of '07.  A '79 engine is in the frame, the '81 engine on the small pallet has damage from a chain letting loose.


Here it is today after fitting the '79 17" rear wheel and tire (PO had an 18" wheel from a CB450, did not fit right), stock bars that Tom Kimberly gave me, pod filters and new rear turn signals.

Now  1972 CB350FX (experimental v2.0)
        1981 CB650c Custom with '79 engine (wifes)
        1981 CB650 engine
        2004 HD XL883C Custom
        1977 Yamaha XS750D (in progress)
Then 1972 CL175
        1964 Yamaha YGS-1T

       Well, I've got an 80' CB650C, or at least part of one. ::) Don't know if you'd want to count it, once you see how much is (and how much isn't) there. :-\ Not sure what I'm gonna do, as far as this one's concerned. I've considered doing something similar to Paul, but not as far (the 550/650 hybrid). Well, anyway, here it is. (Doesn't matter to me if it is counted or not, I was just thinking about the numbers) ;)

new master cylinder and reservoir
new ss brake line
ft. caliper rebuild
heel/toe shifter (off 82 650)
brake + clutch lever powder coat
side covers hit w/ rubbing compound to remove scratches
new head gasket
2 new valves
valve adjustment/lapping
new air filter
oil change/filter
fork rebuild
new rubbers on front + back
seat reupholstered
new handlebars/grips
new coils
new starter relay
kreamed tank...
new (to me) hondaline luggage
new (to me) case guard
new (to me) grab bar
...and now she won't run.
 ::)
Soon, dammit.

Well I did not bother to register this bike here because I bought it and fixed it up to sell.  It's a one two owner '79 with 8015 original miles, but it is too similar in size to my '07 Triumph Bonneville and too big for my beginner girlfriend to ride.  With the proceeds, I paid for my haggard CB400F (which I did register on here) and all of the modifications I will need for a great cafe racer.  The new owner is picking it up Friday.  I figured I should at least show off what I used to fund my current project.  It's a beautiful bike, and I hope the new owner appreciates it.  I hate to see it go.

Hailing all the way from the other end of the planet with the only 1979 CB650PZ I have seen on here.
Never have I met such a stubborn bike that refused to be resurrected from the scrap heap, it's like she don't wanna be fixed!
Anyhow this is going to happen--one day, probably not today!
Retired by the New Zealand Ministry of Transport from traffic duty in the 1980's this ghostly 650 is slowly, very slowly rising from the grave.
She has lights and sirens and when complete will scare the bejezzas out of a few motorists ha ha ha......Hush.

I think the thing I most like about motorcycling is the speed at which my brain must process information at to avoid the numb skulls who are eating pies, playing the ukulele, applying make-up etc in the comfort of their airconditioned armchairs as they make random attempts to kill me!!!!!!!

A police 650.......that has to be the most uncommon 650 I've ever seen. Good luck with the project.
