Custom Honda CB500 Chopper

You know, sometimes we all come across a motorcycle that leaves us speechless.

And other times, shaking our heads.

Or

Today, I was eBaying to my hearts content, when a customer came into the shop to pick up a bike and drop off another -

The one dropped off is the dudes sons, the shop just needs to get it running.

I had to get photographic evidence of this machine -

For your viewing pleasure, I present this CB500 Chopper:



I know, you are already impressed, well, you ain't seen nothin' yet!

Check this out, both sides -





Quality work, eh?

We had to unload it from a pickup - front brake lever was missing. Brake hose cracked almost all the way through anyway.

I had to walk away -

This is one the shop probably should of turned away

It looks like he pained over the rust on the tank. Didn't even sand it first lol.

Well, lets hope he survives after his frame cracks on the freeway.

Wow, UJ....that thing is really a toilet full of schit, half flushed.

Like the monkey with the typewriter, they just keep banging away until they eventually write a word (even if they don't know whether or not they have done it, and they don't). However, if you interrupt them, they fling schit at you.


And, my grade is: _________
