Cafe Project - Run a CR500f 2T

Okay ya Jamoches, what would it take to find a late 90s CR500f 2 Smoker and cram it into an old light weight 70s CB450 (or 250) Frame? - Could it even be done? - I think a big ole nasty grumpy smokey 2T Cafe Rat Bike would be bad arse

Thoughts?

Watching "Cafe Racer" on HDT and after seeing the build Gus did for Nick and always liking these bikes, I am intrigued - But, with my 3 herniated discs, I could not ride these bikes - So, I thought of a diff idea - Cram a dirty old 500 2T into an old CB frame, throw some straight MX bars (like your old SV) on it and rip the fucker around the City

I have a close friend who is in the Indy Ton Up Club and is aching to build me something - He has a few old CBs and Kawis that are a blast to rip around town on

Just thinking of what I could do and do it diff then all the rest

I know a dude that built out a CR500 as a race bike, then he dropped and streched it into a drag bike. He might still have it if you're looking for a project base to work from.

It will be a 2011 thing as I am trying to just hang on to my current job right now - But, if I have even more inspiration with something like this, I can try and make a miracle or 2 happen

If & when you do it, this would be a fun scoot. I like the combination of big hp with unique flavor.

If I ever did something along those lines I think I'd base it around a Honda CBX motor. In addition to being unique & fast, those CBXs sounded absolutely amazing with the right pipes.

The CBXs had an air cooled 1050cc inline 6 with 6 carbs. There are at least a few aftermarket suppliers with 6 into 6 systems that sound bad ass.

One of the reasons I love 'em is how similar they sound to the old school Ferraris.

Well aware of this amigo - Actually, the sound of this Vid was "Dubbed" in and sounds pretty damn close to the sound of that bike - 1970s vid vs this one with VERY similar sounds

Ahh, 6 Banger Bike with 6 separate carbs - No wonder it is 70s Ferrari sounding....
