Florida's Cafe Honda CB200

Post  904cafe on Sun 23 Nov - 7:31

New to the forum guys... Heres a photo of my bike several months ago. Since this I have torn down the motor for a complete rebuild. I just completed painting the motor and It's almost ready to go back in the bike...





And here is a shot of the motor I just took today...



Let me know what ya think! More to come!

I really like this photo too...



Other than the low compression, here is the other reason I had to rebuild the motor...


I found that in the case (the broken gear, not the quarter).

Hey,

congratulations with your neat bike. I'm glad to see that 'thumper" bikes are popular! I have a cb 185, build from a 125 with a 185 engine mounted.

Success with rebuilding your engine, you still have a quarter to pay the parts Very Happy

Ciao!

Thanks guys!

The gear ended up being the kick shaft gear... which when I popped the case open, the one on the shaft was ?FINE? and still in one piece. Im thinking it was previously worked on and they couldn't find the other half to the gear when servicing it.

The exhaust is just a CL175 exhaust (or just the pipes) wrapped up in some good ole header wrap. Very loud! I may be fabing up some custom baffles here soon.

Some scrambler - style mufflers! ( with a grid,perforated heat shield mounted). Really beautiful, but expensive.

great looking mods

Hey - I like what you've done with your cb200. high pipes always look good in my opinion, and you've really made it your own.

I just picked up a '75 cb200t myself, and will be getting it into my kitchen soon to get my hands dirty.

Quick question (of many to come): Can you put wider tires on the cb200t? I love the look of the fat vintage firestone tires I've seen on some smaller cafe racers. I figure I'll be removing the front mud guard and modifying the rear anyway, so that wouldn't be a problem, but I'm not sure how wide the existing equipment (i.e. front forks) allow. Can anyone help me out?

Gravel crew (Japan) has done some great bikes with this look. One of my favorites:

Nice bike! I will be building my 185 soon. When the weather warms and I can get back in my garage to work. I had a similar deal with a gear in my PE400 I went on a long trail ride and I heard an awful noise and my motor locked up. I thought I was screwed. I found that the crankshaft bolt had come off and locked in the kick-start gear. Easy fix but a big scare.
