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.

Radness. As always, if my piles of junk hold anything useful just shout.
The faces of the damned
And all the butchered lambs
If I had to do it over
I just would've done it slower

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

So, picked up a new seat and tank.

Opinions, F tank or CB500T tank.

Black tank looks a bit weird from the side, but sexy from the back. Maybe just how the front of the seat is lining up with it
