I put this Honda CB 500 together a bunch of years ago in a couple weeks for the most part on Sarah's back patio. It had a nice low and stretched out riding position with Tomasselli clip ons that I found at a swap meet. Raask rear sets bolted right on to the old exhaust mounts to my suprise for a nice foot position. Just had to make some linkage for them. I didn't have to alter the CB500 stamped sheet metal frame other than grinding off some tabs here and there and relocating the battery box . She bought the tank and seat and I just mounted it. I had it painted in early Honda CR Elsinore silver with the green stripe. For as little effort I put into this I always liked how it came out.
