1977 Honda Cb550f2 Raiden

The bike like all came into the workshop a sorry state , It’s now been completely rebuilt pistons bearings every component checked .I chose to keep the carbs as I like the look of them . Frame has had a tidy up and some fabrication. GSXR 1000 front end with a nice triple tree on also customs wheels and upgraded to rear disc. Magura hc1 hydraulic clutch and brake levers a one off exhaust system s/s which the guys at BCR built to spec for for sound great.Rear Ohlins because I thought she wouldn’t find out.Lots of titanium fixtures like wheel spindles and such if . Much of the usual moto gadget stuff like the m unit blue and motoscrope speedo also.The seat I’ve had upholstered in leather and alcantar and the tank was one random purchase I made online years ago . Also had some hammer and chisel engraving done on the top yoke and monza cap My 6yr old Kid who helps out wanted to call it thunder and lightning we settled for Raiden , it’s a Japanese God of thunder and lightning , and it was half the price to get engraved result .
Finished with a shimmer blue paint job and pearl white when it out in the sun the paint just pops.
