5MT Custom Bobber
Happy B’day, my mate Steve said as he pointed to the backed up F250 and there it was a fugly smashed Honda CJ250T 1976.
Bent frame and ceased up piston and a 10mm hole in the other.
I started pulling bits of soon after, the Triumph handle bars where hanging in my garage waiting to be installed for about 15 years, I kept them of my Yamaha SR500- Bobber when I sold it. A set of brand new Harley shocks, donated by Nathan where beefing up the rear and housed the CB250R rear wheel I got of Adam.

Joe (my dad a retired air plane mechanic) was here on holidays and I managed to get him to rebuild the motor.
The grinding and welding was done at Gismo’s and Rick’s welding shop, I love there toys, thanks for sharing them with me.
Some where along the way I started a website 5mt.com.au and bought a Yamaha XS250 1979, but I’ll tell you about that bike later.
