78 cb750 bobber/chop
« on: May 14, 2012, 01:09:41 »
Just picked up a complete stock 78 cb750. I want to hardtail it, forward controls, straight pipes, and drag bars. Started to clean carbs, change plugs, and oil and hit the first wall. Snapped the head clean off the bolt for the filter housing. After that the bolt came rite out. So new bolt time. Anybody have one of these bolts floating around they don't need?

As I am looking to do a hardtail on this bike I can find a weld-in for up to 76 and 79 and up. What is the differnce in the frame on the 78?

Cycle One, Locust Grove, OK makes a weld-on hardtail specifically for 77-78 K frames.
