Ahh, a bobber. I have, and still am considering building a bobber out of my '04 Rebel 250, just as a project. It would be a cool little bike to run around town on, kind of like a mini chopper, only completely street legal, and with Honda quality. The problem is it has tube type tires, and no centerstand, and I always carry all the stuff to fix flats, including a jack and a compressor, along with wrenches, tire irons, and extra tubes. Don't know how I would carry all that on a bobber. A tank bag and backpack maybe, but a tank bag would ruin the look.

I can't tell by looking at the picture, but have the rear shocks been replaced with struts? I know of 2 people who wound up with broken swingarms using rigid struts. They were just not strong enough to take the pounding without suspension, and buckled right by the lower shock mounts.

That is one tough bike! I had one and restored it in the 80's. Scarey quick once she's rollin'. Those headers look like the Hookers I had, 'cept mine were flat black. It's a reliable,fixable bike. Valve and cam chain adjustments were the only thing that needed regular attention. Of course, you'll be stretcking the drivew chain, if you like to get on it once and awhile!!!! Enjoy! Nice find jimsjinx

Love those older CB's. Them pipes look to be a bit louder than stock, but then again I haven't been 16 for a long time... :gunhead:
