    i dont think i shared on here....3 years ago i bought an old vt700 that has since gone thru some pretty drastic changes. i get bored easily. also, as it turns out they make nothing for this bike aftermarket. in addition to all the cosmetic changes ive made, ive rebuilt the carbs, rejetted the carbs,replaced the clutch, rebuilt the forks, rewired half the damn bike cuz its so old, replaced the starter solenoid, and god knows what else. the first itteration was pretty simple.

    here she was how i bought her, in poor poor running condition.

    then after i rebuilt everything so it would run, i painted it.

    now we get to the good stuff...i got bored again, and i had some issues with rear fender rubbing. so i spent this past winter redoing everything everything again. i modified a sportster bobtail fender to fit the bike, made some mounts so i could adapt a sportster seat, made my own 8in forward controls(bike soooooo needed this) added 8" z bars, model t style tail light, new turn signals

    Trial and error is inevitable when doing things yourself, but you get so much out of it in the end. Great job on the work! :thumbsup:

    sadly, I've only put Husky Liners in it thus far - tend to blow all my cash on my bikes and guitars.
    Sweet little build man!!! Kudo's on the fab work!

    very cool. My dad, brother and I built up an old 197? CB750 into a cafe racer. It was a lot of work and a lot of fun too!


    Edit: when we got it it was laying on its side out in the weather and buried about 6" under the ground lol. Lets just say it was a frame up resto lol.
