FOR SALE! This is a rare opportunity here to purchase a complete ready to go custom Brick House Builds original! This 1983 Honda GL650 is recently finished and has a unique blend of styles within a cohesive single form. This thing is an absolute blast to ride and is hands down one of the toughest sounding bikes you will ever hear! I can answer any questions you have on it so just send me a message if you are unsure of anything not shown within the ad or corresponding videos.
The bike is located near St. Louis but I am willing to personally deliver for added cost or help organize shipping. I have a fully enclosed moto-van I transport bikes in daily.

The bike started as a fully dressed cruiser that was well maintained. The engine showed great compression before the build began and is very clean inside from my inspections. I have replaced the clutch cover gasket and actuator seal, oil pan gasket after inspecting the oil pump pickup, all coolant tube orings, new thermostat, valves adjusted and gaskets replaced. The carburetors have been 100% disassembled and ultrasonic cleaned with seals, passage plugs, and jets replaced and other components inspected/refurbished.
Although the bike is shown on knobby tires this is not an offroad bike. Sure, you can have fun on some gravel roads but anything aggressive offroad is not what this was built for. If need be I can add some more protection to the bike at a cost but just know this is not the rig you want for the Trans American Trail. With some street tires you would have even more of a blast on the twisty backroads.
Again, I try to be very detailed and transparent with everything. I will respond quickly to any questions. Just know I pride myself in my work and this is not a bike held together by zip ties and electrical tape. I do this professionally full time and this is a quality bike.
