1976 CB750 Into the Sunset
« on: Jul 07, 2016, 09:51:47 »
So, my dad decided to officially retire. And I decided to build him a motorbike as a retirement gift.

Enter this titled, running CB750.





Hope to have the bike completed within a month or two.

Plans are to give it a basic tune-up, clean and paint, etc. I am still debating on whether or not I want to swap out the tank/seat. That particular tank has about 10 pounds of bondo, I reckon. 
I'm going to eat your brains and gain your knowledge.

Radness. As always, if my piles of junk hold anything useful just shout.

Is this what the 500t tank being mailed your way is for?

Likewise ;)
When you are Dead, you don't know that you are Dead. It is difficult only for Others.

It is the same when you are Stupid.

Rad.  Already set up for it.  The petcock is tricky, but doable.

That will stay with me, and hopefully (eventually) be hardtailed.
