Title: Honda CB750KZ 88 Special
Post by: edwin026 on Sep 10, 2017, 09:14:06
Hello Everyone,

I have re-registered as my old account for some misterious reason does not work anymore.
My name is Edwin and I live near Arnhem in the Netherlands. A couple of weeks ago I bought an 1980 Honda CB750KZ. Bike is looking good for an 37 year old bike! When I bought it I gave it a quick check and rode the hell out of it for the last few weeks.
Since the weather has turned I decided it would be time to start taking it apart. My goal is to rebuild the bike from scratch and I am inspired by the Honda builds of The Bolex and Hookie.

The build will be a long term project since I have a very busy job and dont always have time on the weekend. It is a fun project for me and also helps me to relax. I will try and update this topic whenever I have made progress.
I have already seen that this topic is loaded with experts that have created beautiful bikes! If I ever need help I hope you all can help me!

If you have any questions please feel free to send me a message!

Edwin

ps I will post some photo's asap.

And as promised some pictures.
The first image is when I rode it for a couple of weeks. Second pic is when I started the tear down. Third is how it sits now.

Made a little progress! Took the engine out and stripped her down to the frame. Next is to take the paint of the frame and clean a whole lot of parts

And a little update. I stripped and cut the frame and are looking to weld on a frame loop coming weeks. Also bought some goodies. I am thinking about buying a motogadget blue anyone  has experience with one?
