That second bike has Comstars on it. Is that what your '80 has?

Yes it has Comstars. That CB750 custom and My CB900 custom are close to identical. Biggest difference is that mine is shaft drive.

Hmmmm.  That last one isn't a Gravel Crew bike. That's Troybuilts cb360 - a couple years ago.

360's got Conti's on it
Far superior tyre to the Firestone and still looks somewhat 'vintage'

My 2 cents: Those old style dresser tires are all the rage on "brat" bikes, not sure what "brat style" is really as it looks the same as the customs and bobbers people have been building for years but with an uncomfortable seat and no rear fender so shit will sling all over you and the bike when you ride through any. Anybody that really rides a bike will soon figure out that those tires don't handle at all well in the curves, twisties and turns. Why not build the same style bike, if that is what you like, put some nice round tires on it instead of those square bastards. If you do some research you can find some nice quality and good looking tires that will turn when you lean over and countersteer into your favorite set of curves and have a blast instead of having your ass sucking your brat seat cover. I like Avons and Bridgestones for classic looks and good prices.
