Building a Konica Minolta Honda CBR 600 rr Motorcycle

Yeah, I know. A motorcycle post on a photography blog is kind of a stretch.

But it’s a Minolta Honda CBR 600 rr. Ain’t nothing better than that.

It’s cool. The only thing that would be better is if the Honda were black and it had the early Minolta font. But the machine is still striking.

While I was out looking at possible adapters for Minolta lenses to Canon EOS bodies, I ran across Jim Buchanan. His adapters seem very popular. I haven’t used them, but I found a several positive mentions of his work on forums.

Here is Jim Buchanan’s site. I’ll let you know if I end up using him.

Another video converting Minolta Lenses to work on Canon Cameras

I found this video showing the conversion of Minolta lenses to work on Canon EOS cameras. Here he is converting a Minolta MD Rokkor-X 50 1.4.

I previously posted a video by the same person on converting a PF 58:
