Honda CB500F Rebuild Part 2 - High School Tinkering

When I started rebuilding this bike (the first time!), I was heavily influenced by the Custom Bike craze on Discovery Channel. I watched American Chopper and Biker Build-off constantly, so I knew that the bike had to be customized.

Years under a ripped tarp had taken their toll, and the paint was pretty much shot. I disassembled the bike and stripped it to the bare metal, then I repainted it red with metallic blue flames. My brother created the flames by hand, drawing their shape with thin tape and masking it off for the high-end rattle can job.
