1  Motorcycle Stuff / Honda old 2cyl / Re: 1993 CB250 Nighthawk Basket Case Build (99 Cent Special Mark II) on: October 17, 2017, 09:33:19 AM
To Adapt the 750NH steering stem to the 250 frame I'm using the bearings from the 750NH and making bearing cups to adapt to the 250's frame. The steering stem is long enough to do the job unmodified if I play my cards right.

I finished up the upper steering bearing cup first, I'm making them from aluminum to keep weight down, but they're pretty chunky. It's probably overkill but all stressed areas are minimum .300" thick. I'll clean up the finish on both after the bottom cup is done and all dimensions are finalized.

Thanks Ben, I let that one slip for way too long and lost a lot of time.

Ok, I finally found some time to get my lathe back up and running. With a little luck I should have some progress to report soon.

Last weekend I picked up a pair of barely rolling 250 nighthawk parts bikes. I traded an old electric winch my former landlord had left behind when he sold the place. Lots of (good???) parts (except fork tubes, bodywork, seats and tanks) and I may eventually be able to title both frames.

I'm sorry to hear! Sounds like he was a good man!

Be safe all!


We never met but his reputation is known far and wide, it's a great loss to the community.

So roughly about $5k as a price point then.  CBR300R, CB300F, CRF250L, Rebel 300, YZF R3, Vstar 250, GSX250R, GW250, GW250F, TU250X, DR200S, Vanvan 200, Ninja 300, Royal Enfield Bullet 500 EFI and KTM 390 Duke are all in that range too.

That's quite a bit of competition that don't have the features or MPG numbers 47Moto are talking.

Sounds good, I'll wait for pricing info.

An old thread but I've been doing some research on the Cartridge Emulators that have been on ebay for a long time listed for 41mm Harley (showa) forks.  Priced around $55 shipped.

https://m.ebay.com/itm/172661938134?_mwBanner=1

http://www.vtwinmfg.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CatalogSearchResultView?storeId=10101&catalogId=10102&langId=-1&pageSize=10&beginIndex=0&sType=AdvancedSearch&searchTermScope=1&searchTermCaseSensitive=no&searchTermOperator=LIKE&searchType=ALL&searchForm=Header&searchTerm=24-0361

As near as I can tell these emulators are most similar to Racetech's FEGV S3803

What will they fit?
Here's what I found, the OD of the emulator must be at least .75mm smaller than the ID of your fork tubes, it
can be as much as 4mm or more smaller without issue. The step must fit inside the 'cup' at the top of your damper
rod, it needs .5mm clearance minimum but must still cover the 'cup' when shifted side to side (or you can center it
with some kind of adaptor).

It's not too tough to calculate if you have your forks torn down to measure, and ~$55 shipped VS Racetech's $169 +S&H.....

Their OD is 31mm and 'step - D' is 24.13mm

Could it be a CB160?

Righto Treeve, even better if the frame can be salvaged.  Ben I'm looking at that rear tank mount and the motor mounts under the horizontal part of the frame, they're rusty and hard to see but after a minute with both pictures I started to see them. First I was thinking Bridgestone, but without at least one front downtube that seemed wrong.

Just spotted this on Craigslist, a shop in CT is closing. The ad is 27 days old,  I wonder how much is left and how low the prices have gotten...
