Default Bike build 82 Twinstar

I picked up this 82 Honda cm200 with the intention of just throwing on some clubman bars and cleaning it up a bit until my girlfriend was ready to ride it. The day started out with replacing the handlebars and it has now snowballed into a project. Her dad and I decided we want to do a budget cafe racer and we made a little progress today.

This is my first road bike, luckily the old Hondas a fairly simple. The only issue were really having is possibly eliminating the battery. I'm not sure if I just throw a capacitor on there in place f the battery or if that will work. If anyone has any advice on that it is much appreciated. Or if anyone has any helpful tips or recommendations it would help out a newbie. While this bike is pretty simple, it's not quite as easy as building a mx race bike.

Cheers!
