Darkness 78 CB750
« on: Mar 08, 2016, 19:56:47 »
Hello everyone, first timer here. Been a follower of DTT for the past year and have to admit I got the fever now. Cafe fever. Never was into motorcycles before but have always wanted a mechanical/paint project. Figured why not learn and have fun with everything on a bike project. I wasn't sure of what bike to start with but was drawn to the CB series and only want to do this once and the right way so I opted for the 750. I found one luckily close by and at the price range I had available. Picked her up about a month ago and she starts and rides fine which is a great start.

Ok so lets not go backwards then.

Where'd the front fender go?

Why'd you wrap the pipes?

Whatcha doin with the wiring?

Grinded the tabs off the side to prep for a lead filler. The tank lock had a piece chipped off that I tried to restore to round(pics later)
