Quick update

I need to clean the engine from years of built up grease and grime. I'd like to invest in a bead blaster but that'll probably have to wait a while. For now i took the ring that holds the exhaust pipe on and ran it across a wire wheel. It cleaned up nice I think. problem with the wheel is that it doesnt fit into tight spaces, and the dremmel tool I used on this piece is flimsy and breaks easily (I used a fresh one on this piece and it was shot by completion).  If anyone has a bead blaster that wants to help a brotha out, please let me know...


  1. so pumped on this blog. I know nothing about motorcycles, could probably barely ride one, but in the last year I have wanted nothing more than to buy a used bike, specifically a 74 cb, and rebuild it. must be getting older or something. keep up the good work, this is a great read. thanks.

  2. Thanks for the kind words. CB's are great first projects because you can usually find them for a reasonable price, parts are readily available, and they clean up nice!
