Another 750 Four.
« on: Feb 14, 2016, 21:50:20 »
I sold my Suzuki GS 2 years ago to buy a 67 Triumph spitfire.  As great as that thing was to look at, there was just no pleasure in driving it.  It had to go.  Thankfully, that made my budget for a 1975 CB750, which I've been pining after for years, but have always been reluctant to pull the trigger. 

She has sat in the garage for a week while I pondered my vision for the build and compiled by inspiration bikes in my favorites tabs, but as of today I have a frame and motor (until I get assistance pulling the motor out).

Started welding excess tabs and cleaning up the frame.  Waiting for my seat to arrive to determine if any frame mods are needed before sending it to the powder coater.   I'm trying to determine what electronics I can eliminate.  I'm trying to run as lean as possible (while staying legal) but I think I underestimated the space for my electronics when pulling the trigger on the tray from cognitomoto.

So what can I eliminate/replace/streamline?

The speaker wire?

Seriously though, do you have any automotive electrical experience? If no, I stronly suggest you save the money and buy a harness from here: http://www.sparckmoto.com/ and contact the owner and fellow DTT member here: http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=7790 .

You can slim things down and mounting things under the Moto box like the starter solenoid, reg/rec etc...

Impressive, huh?  Unfortunately, the turn signals weren't producing great sound quality, so the speaker wire has to go.

I had already planned to buy a new harness, but if I can get one that's already trimmed down I may be better off.

Thanks for the feedback.  New Harness and R/R on order from Sparck Moto, though I'm looking at about 5 weeks before it's ready.  Still waiting on my seat from DCC so I can make any frame modifications before sending to the powder coater.  I don't anticipate needing any other frame mods with my bolt on oil tank and rearset brackets from Cognitomoto.  Engine is getting sent off this weekend for a rebuild, so I'm looking at about a month before I can begin assembly.  In the meantime, I have plenty of crap to polish, and even more crap to buy.
