    Default Honda CD175 Bobber Project

    I was looking for a bobber project candidate on a famous peer to peer website and after a month of searching I ended up buying this. A 1977 Honda CD175. This motorcycle came with a seized engine and dismal body condition. As I was only interested in the Chassis/frame therefore fortunately the frame looks pretty solid and rust free. Just a teeny weeny rust patch just above the rear spring upper mounts.

    The latter picture is the inspiration. I want to end up with something like this. A single seater bobbed up honda CD175 with an oversized/ mean engine.

    As for now I'm in search for a good engine for this frame. I've been told that CB180 or XM180 engine can fit bolt bolt on this frame. However I want to go a little wild with this project and I was thinking to go for CBR250RR engine, one that revs to 19,000 RPM. Lets See what happens.

    search cb400 1978-80 on Google have u find anyone like this ?
    aur 18 inches wheel ka kya hai rx mein aaya hai with disc kawasaki mein aaya hai with disc and many more
    Agreed! the front shaft size do change but this particular front end has a bigger fork bridge, therefore there is room for a wider tyre.
    And Junaid bhai by 18 inch wheels I mean I don't want to increase the wheel height any further as it will ruin the proportion of the bike. Ziada bara wheel acha nahi lagay ga.

    Previous owner the taste tow aap title picture say dekh hee saktay hain.........."woh aadmi zara doojay kisam kay hain"
    I will not install any mudguard at the front, so the current one will come off. Look ka Look! bachat ki bachat!

    Exactly! Front will be 17 inch whereas at the back I'll either go with a 16 inch rims if I put in a high profile tyre (with bigger side walls) otherwise 17 inch would be just fine.

    Loog tow 18 inch ka rim CG125 may bhi daaltay hain. Its all about the preferred overall look. I want a low rider.

    Muh ki baat cheen lee aap nay. I was about the ask the same question!

    Hai Koi ........... hai koi ALLAH ka banda jo jawab day.

    As far as I know the OCC guys used GMAW which stands for Gas Metal Arc Welding..........Is may "Gas" ka word bhi use hota hai aur "Arc" ka bhi. (Arc=electric). Confusion Confusion!

    Haan! Generally Electric weld is more stronger than Gas weld. Thats the general concensus (atleast in Pakistan). GMAW uses a inert gas like helium or Argon to stop any contamination and however the actual welding is ARC.....matlab electric welding. Also GMAW has lower ampere than regular arc weld thus you get more controlled welding joint (like the famous stack of coins technique) shown in the image below.

    Its not CD185 any more and not a CB250, its a 233cc engine swapped custome cruiser made by my self.

    Putting a 250 or a 350 cc engine in cg chasis is insanity and dangerous, it is not an art but madness.. passion what ever you name it.

    when I swapped engine I knew that vibration may kill the chasis and I assured by consulting some of the finest magician of maddness Mechnics to have there oopinions about bigger engine vibrations, drawbacks and if cd-185 frame is really capabale enough to incorporate bigger engine power, torque, and vibrations and I came to know it hails from roadMaster family and strong enough and will be no problem in bigger cc engine, besides the difference was only +4~5 hp and results were quite well...

    And yes there was no choice left but to put a bigger tyre becuase the engine was just killing a small 3.00-17 tyre but now... both are in perfect harmony, and dics brakes provide good breaking as well..

    like cg125 pe log 250 350 tak ka head cylinder rakhte hen aur phr khush bhi hote hen
    kehte hen art hai
    aik lehaz se art hai lekin bhai aese art ka kya karen jo chalne aur bhagne se zada phatne pe tula ho
    if anyone want more power, change the engine
    like aximaxim will do inshaAllah, ALLAH KAREEM
    aur raha cd175 ka selection in term of frame
    then jhangir k walid apne 30-35 years k mechanical experience
    k sath khte hen hum ne aaj tk cd175 ka chassis major accident nai dekha
    its very strong due to its material as well as its dimensions

    If you are only interested in the chassis then a cd175 would be better buy for you specially if you are planning to put in a bigger power house in it. Also factor in the cost a cd175 will cost you several times cheaper than a cd200.

    Honda CD200 is still in production I believe as I once saw an ad on Dubizzle for Model 2011 of CD200 (Same classic shape). As the parts are readily available CD200 is a great candidate for restoration project. However a Honda CD175 has a different story (year of production 1967-1979), as this model discontinued over 30 years ago it’s safe to expect that parts availability would be an issue making it’s a perfect customization project.

    CD200 is a beauty. Its classic lines are a treat to watch. I personally feel it’s a great loss if someone chops up a CD200 for customization. It deserves Better! It deserves proper restoration. Sirf Chassis Chahiye tow cd175 is cheaper and tougher.

    When I shared my Idea with one of closest friend, he said: ?Bachi phasa lay koi! Lagta hai tere pass buhat farigh time aur faaltu paisa hai?

    After about a month of intensive searching I finally saw an ad pop up on OLX. I went to inspect the bike and as it was a non-runner I asked several of my friends to help me bring the bike back home. First they agreed but when I told which bike???All of them said??they won?t help because they are my friends and they know it?s not what I should be doing. For them it?s a waste of time and money. All I had for them was: ?SHOQ DA KOI MOL NAE?
