Here's my first, a 1975 honda cb750k. Took 2 years and a dumptruck load of pocket change and rolled coins, but she's 95% done!! And I say 95% because seriously, are they eve really done? More pics will follow soon, but the weather has been bad so there's only a few that I took while messing with different filters.

The black and tan

Good stuff Mr. E. I dig it.
I took the shell off of my racing snail thinking it would make him faster.

It just made him more sluggish.

I think its sweet! I like that its a 750, w/a pass seat, but still looks sleek, and cafe-ed! Very nice! You wouldn't have a sound clip, wouldja?

No sound clip yet :(  but hopefully I can do one this weekend along with more/better pics. Honestly id never thought of doing sound. But I like the noise, I guess it stands to reason others would too :)

I love the color combonation of the paint and seat. I definately think you achieved your name sake black and tan status for the bike.

I love these images for two reasons.
1) the bike looks great and looks like a lot of fun to ride.
2) I grew up riding my pedal bike across that bridge. I grew up in Hendersonville and would ride down to Saluda quite a bit. There is a trail that runs from that parking lot over to Lake Summit and there is a rope swing we used to hang out at.

Well, its a great looking bike on a great bridge;)

Wow guys, thanks for.the kinds words. I've been driving around saluda and i26 for years now and always wanted to see the bottom of that gorge, finally got the chance while running errands that day.  I had no idea the lake was so close either. Kinda reminds me of a train trestle I used to ride my pedal bike in florida to over the econlahatchee river as a kid. Youth rocks. And thanks for the seat props. Seems people love it or hate it, and im kinda in the middle, but the stich work was free, so yay!
