Howdy from Houston, Texas
« on: Jun 21, 2017, 22:09:34 »
Below is my CB750 K4.  I finished it about three months ago.  It was a total basket case when I got it.  I did all the work myself...fab, paint, engine rebuild, etc.  The gas tank is from a '75 Suzuki GT750.  The tail section is made from walnut and basswood.

I also bought this basket case CB750 Chopper last week.  Can hardly wait to get started.

I'm also producing and selling billet clutch lifter plates for CB750.  If you've ever snapped an OEM cast lifter plate then you'll know why I'm making these.  I started a thread in the EBay forum if anyone is interested.

Thanks for the welcome.  Here's a few build pics of the Cafe Tracer (part tracker, part racer).

Will do.  The above photo was before the previous owner pulled it apart for paint.  What I got in reality is a pile of parts, but that's OK with me.

I hope to start mocking it up and getting the fab work started in a few weeks.  There will be a lot of changes from the previous owners vision.

Here's my other ride.  V-Twin bobber.  I've had it 10 years.  It's had many makeovers and many miles put on it since it was new.
