I'm in the club. I bought this POS last November - '74 Honda CB550. Didn't run. I spent a lot of time with it in the garage this Spring and have it running beautifully now. It took a significant amount of work. I'm going to repaint it the original color and give it a nice spit shine in the next couple of weeks.

I really love riding it. There's a lot of fun to be had for the amount of money I have in it.

I finally got around to painting my '74 CB550. I probably put 20+ hours into it, which was mostly sanding. Paint looks good from 5+ feet away but has some flaws. I'm pretty disappointed in myself, but I'm not going to redo it. It's a metallic silver base with an orange candy mid coat, and it's not very forgiving. This was my first time using a HVLP gun.

I now have a ton of respect for people that do this type of work for a living. It's not easy, and there's some skill involved.

The rest of the bike needs to be cleaned and some polish, but I think it looks 100x better with the new paint.

Quoted from Gryszzz:

Survived my 1st crash yesterday. Cruisin along in rush hour traffic on a busy street, gal in front of me gets over to turn right, but in front of her guy was stopped for some fucking reason. Goin about 30mph, hit front brake too hard and my baby went a-rollin, as did I. Arms bloodied up but went pretty well I'd say. 20 people standin around lookin fuckin amazed when I stood up and picked my bike back up. Everybody except the dickpants that was stopped, that pussy took off like a scared child. As pissed as I am about his driving; I have no one to blame but myself. Those morons aren't lookin out for me, I'M lookin out for me. Need to pay closer attention, and I will.
Not even a scratch on my lucky shirt.

Close call. Glad it didn’t turn out too bad. Hopefully, the incident will increase your perception to this type of douchbaggery.

I put my bike down last Spring due to some gravel on the corner of a country road. Lost some skin on my forearm, similar to you. Now, I’m hyper aware of gravel. I won’t let that happen again.

Mrs. Allibaster picked up this ornament for me. It’s a CB750. I have a CB550. Close enough.

Great detail. I like it.
