I always loved the look of a drum brake.  Here’s my bitsa with all rechromed bits..

The biggest problem with this bike and many other cafe project bikes that I see is the price...  The original concept of these was to make them cooler than original on a budget.  I wouldn't mind this bike if it was at the $500-$1000 that a 1980 CX500 is worth.  Then you would have the chance to actually make it cool by fixing the ugly rear and the height at the front.

Removing stuff, calling dime city and spray paint just doesn't make a bike worth $5K

Purposely building a bitsa bike myself, that way I don't feel bad about cutting tabs and all that.  DS7 frame, RD350 center cases/crank/tranny, R5 top end, DS7 side panels, RD350 tank... The R5/DS7 had such cooler looking engines, forks and drum brakes.  Lends to a much better looking custom bike.

One word. Forceps. Game changer for sure, was recommended by a forum member.

Hemostats work great to compress and hold the spring while you get the cable and plastic jammy situated.


That’s what I meant

Playtime was limited today. I got one side disassembled and the reed block cleaned up. Did a quick mock up.

It fills the hole up. Air filters will be close...

I'm not gonna look. Had a CX650C very briefly, before I turned it. Shall we say...:"uninspiring"?

All the more reason (when this 'kin pandemic is behind us) to TRAVEL, go see these places! The Barber museum, the NSU museum, your local club race... all this great stuff is temporary, as is our time here, so experience it, make a memory of something besides the couch.
