New Project Bike for Me!

Ta da! here is my new project bike! a 1986 Honda¬† CBX 250 RXD. I’m going to make a cafe racer!

I got this because:

  1. It’s a Honda and was cheap.
  2. It’s got spoked alloy DID 18″ wheels
  3. It’s got a disc front brake (I know drum brakes are retro cool, but I don’t want to die just yet!)
  4. It’s allegedly 30HP stock and 130Kg, so when I strip many things off it should have good power to weight.
  5. I am told it will do over 100MPH stock (when it was new anyway).
  6. Thomas will want to ride on the road in 18 months time and it will make an uber cool learners bike for him when I finish it.
  7. I was bored and had nothing else to work on in the garage now that we all have new bikes.

Once I know for sure that it runs and the engine isn’t completely knackered I will begin the process of buying many parts on the internet.
