StoryThe rennovated CB 650 C is owned by a cool guy by the name Onur Ayli . We came in contact trough a mutual friend. The bike was tinkered and toyed around by 3 different mechanics before it came to us. It was a mess when it arrived. We shared a similar kind of sense of style. So we decided to turn it into a cafe racer rather than just geting it working again. First we drew some sketches and agreed on the posture and style. And we started working. All the bodywork, posture and paint was the fun part. But the engine's condition was a disaster when it came to us. We traced back all the mistakes of former mechanics and got this girl running again. After going over the electric, reboring the engine and changing valve guides, it came alive. Making her lighter and re-jetting the carbs to new K&N filters and open exhaust... She's a beast now. We like her even more when she's angry.
Thumbs UpWith new jet settings it became a natural sprinter. With its long and lean posture its like a drag racer. Relocating the footrest further to the back and Lsl low Clipon's just added to that spirit.
Thumbs DownPosture is a bit uncomfortable for long hours of cornering. It tured out to be a very low bike. Also the hunch on the gas tank is not enough for resting.
