Default Going "old school"

Well after much debate and excitement I would like to announce my return to the two wheel world. I decided as part of my return I would be going old school like a pair of white mother fucking jeans


so I bought a 1975 Honda CB400F Supersport



It runs perfect, has a bunch of new stuff on it, I think I'm going to chop it up and make a rat rod bike out of it and have some fun. I'm going to pick it up Sunday so I'll post more pics once I figure the direction I want to head with it .

If it's in decent shape, I'd fix it up like stock. I think rat rod bikes are for ones that are too far gone. I'd have a hard time chopping up a nice bike. If you must change it up, cafe it. :)

I wish I could find a pair of parachute pants. That would be cool.

Hondas do not make good bobbers. As cliche' as it is, go Cafe.
