Here is a crazy little project I started about a month ago, for some reason I like the look of these 1960's Hondas. This is a 1965 S65 that I purchased for a whopping $150.00, although to be honest these bikes are a losing financial proposition even if someone gave it to you.
I changed the bars and put new tires on it, it needs to have the seat reupolstered and a paint job on the gas tank. It is going to be a rustoration and I actually want it to be a bit rough.
It will be a neat little bike for all of the neophites to learn to ride.
Well it is almost a new year and it's time for a new start. I was able to find a titled Triumph TR110 frame and a cherry set of 58 TR6 cases. I was born in 1958 so this is a project I have wanted to do for quite some time. I was going to build a unit twin TR6 project but as the saying goes "been there and done that".
I am still a bit undecided on the style I am after, rigid bobbers have been done so much that they almost are common place. I am thinking more on the lines of a T100 style 1950's racer. I may go with a rear swing arm section but we'll see.
Here are some pictures I got from The Jockey Journal of both styles.
Not to mention all the drama surrounding the latest biker build off, but it was a treat to see certain loud and opinionated people lose out to a pretty basic Shovelhead built by a couple of real people. And it is PINK on top of that !!
Way to go Gas Monkey !
