No, looks like an OEM to people who don't know shit about the bike! Which is cool to me! This is the way Honda would have made it if the technology had been there at the time of its production. This bike should handle much better that stock, have better apex acceleration, and have far less corner sway under power. All of this with classic looks = WINNER! I love the subtle styling and resto-mod design you have taken. I am in love with this bike! I think you could make it really cool if you use a OEM pait layout but with colors that the factory never offered! Or use a race paint job from that era Honda race bike!

Great work man, killer bike!

Given the moral maze inhabited by managers, we can understand why those higher in the hierarchy must absent themselves from the details of the production process: such abstraction facilitates non accountability. - Mathew Crawford

I don't know - you could pretty easily mistake it for the later model 750:
