    Nice work. Only negative is rear body piece too wide. I would like one.

    I’m 90% complete with my own 1970 CB175 Cafe, but now I’ve seen yours and well I might have change a few things!
    Looks Great. I put on some aftermarket headlight bucket ears and fabed up a bracket to drop the OEM gauges. They end up being flush with the top of the bars. Try it on another bike.
    keep it up!!

    That looks like a single, the SL175 is a twin, essentially the same engine as the CB/CL 175 but w/no electric starter and different fr/rr sprockets. Pretty cool little scoot.

    It’s an SL125. I’ve got one and want to make mine into a cafe racer. Wish I knew who makes this seat or if it was hand made. The ones I’ve found aren’t as nice as this one. Great bike 🙂

    Thanks for the comments. I built that bike 2 years ago and unfortunately I had to sell it back in November. As for the seat, I made it using the stock metal seat pan. (That’s why it’s so wide) I used an english wheel and pneumatic planishing hammer to form sheet metal to the seat. I then upholstered the seat myself (I do upholstery on the side)

    Anyways, the whole bike was a budget build and I miss the hell out of it. I’ve been searching for it online lately to see if the current owner is interested in selling it back 🙂

    And BTW, it’s a 71′ SL-125 single with a 150cc big bore kit
