1977 CB750 Deviant Hell Ride
« on: Mar 16, 2015, 00:28:37 »
Here we go...

I made a trade with a pal, Mr. E.  I passed off my CB360 and he passed off his arch nemesis, this CB750, a bunch of parts and an XL250 motor. It's a trade amongst friends and considering we grew up just on opposite sides of the NC/SC border from each other, it's a trade amongst neighbors. 

For now, it rests in the Cafe Racer section because (for now) that's what it basically is.  I have a feeling it will end up closer to a tracker, while I've had the fleeting thought of a hardtail chop.  A Cafe/Tracker blend is what I'm most leaning towards. 

The story begins with a bunch of parts.  I'm going to try to run a KZ750 front end with GPZ mags.  It has a CB550T tank and a seat passed on from Retro Moto.  I also have a Mr. E Machining top triple for a CB750, which means I will seriously look at returning to the CB750 front end.  If nothing else, but because I know that will work.  I also have the triple from a CB650, which appears to have the exact offset.  If that works, then the CB750 front becomes more likely.

Definitely using that tank, hombre.  That is, no doubt, the best tank Honda made.

 I used that same tank on my 750 build, a couple mods to the frame and it fits on nice. I'll be watching this build.

Just sitting there.  I'm not going to use it.  It's from a '78 XL175 parts bike I bought for it's kick starter shaft.  It needs cleaned and has a dent in the front corner, right where the tank goes over the frame top tube.  You can kind'a see it in the pic where the two rust spots are.

Work has begun figuring out the front end.  This is an initial mockup to get the KZ750 front end sorted on this machine.  From here, the trail seems like it might be a little long.  Still, the look is about right.  I need the right axle to do this right, as I currently have a KZ750 axle but no GPZ axle. 

Now, the fairing I was messing with on the GL is on it's rightful machine.  This is what it was made for. 

Also talking to Junior about the seat.  Right now, I'm just looking at options for him to alter it.  Mainly, I want the gap at the tank filled and more of an upsweep at the rear baseline.
