That blue engine.....is fucking awesome. Matches the Hagon stickers, and would look awesome with black bodywork with blue pinstripes.

Shame its going! haha

Looking good so far.

It's funny you say that...some of my buddies say leave it and others say paint it...I have a black tank , side covers and headlight bucket. It all comes down to time. I need to get it running and rideable before we go on a weekend trip in May. If I can, I will repaint it and if not, it will be blue for a little while longer

Progress is slow and steady.


Carbs, airbox, and battery tray are secure.  I am running the carbs from my '74 which were jetted for velocity stacks and 4-1 exhaust so they will have to come back off and be re-jetted for the stock airbox and 4-2 pipes


JsJamboree (Jordan) worked is solder magic and shortened the clutch cable to perfection.  Then he and Tifun (Keith) are argued about the proper way to check connections and wiring until we ultimately called it a night and unplugged everything.


My mufflers and battery will be in tomorrow and still have a few small bits to order. 


I still need to get a spiltter and dual brake lined for my CB750 super sport brake setup for the front.  For now i will run a single side setup utilizing my stock MC.


I will update with some pictures later!
