1979 cb650 cafe racer build

Hello everyone, I have been in the process of building a Honda cafe racer. I recently acquired a free 1981 Honda cb650. I decided to build a cafe racer, but the stock ’81 frame really didn’t lend itself well to the cafe style.  I found a 1979 frame, which has nicer geometry to it. I started to post about my build on http://www.hondacb650.com , and those guys have really helped me out. I decided to start a blog about the build, and here it starts, the original thread I started is here:
