New Guy from Okie land!

Post  D.WHO on Sat 7 May - 7:27

Hey guys, just wanted to introduce myself, I'm Lucas, I live in Tulsa Oklahoma, and I just picked up a 1975 Honda CB550 literally about 3 or 4 hours ago! I'm really excited about it and can't wait to get to work on it. Very Happy
(sorry for the crappy pics, bad lighting and a camera phone)

It's still referred to as a Versys this side of the pond as well, and it is an AWESOME bike. Cool
I probably won't be doing any MAJOR work on it in the near future, just bring the maintenance up to spec, brakes, lube cables, valves, etc. I'm planning a pretty simple cafe racer style for it. Beside what's there, replace the side covers with sheet aluminum number plates, clubman bars, napolean bar-end mirrors, and a cafe style tail and seat. I'm kinba digging the color it is now, might just repaint it that color with maybe a little more flake and some white racing stripes down the middle of the bike.
