So retro! I love it. Doesn't look anything like the standard CB550 but I bet more of them have been modified than left original. Cool bike.

very cool! I'm working on a 68 cb450 myself - mustang took precedence but the bike will get some attention soon

I and the rest of my family have always been Harley people, and it's cool to see my dads old school Harley friends reaction to this bike! They all love it!

For a 550 it's very responsive, it's one of those where it feels like your going a lot faster than you are, but I get to 70-75 no problem with plenty of throttle left

Nice, I've seen these pretty cheap on CL. Maybe I'll start a new project once I finish my quad and sell my dirtbike.

Really love this bike. What did you use for the tachometer/speedometer?
