I didn't say it wouldn't affect cornering
It maybe harder to hold a line with out physical effort
But I don't believe it will be that dramatic when speaking of very difficult to turn
Not to mention  3 inches is longer than a cigarette
I know it will have some effect but not unrideable or unreasonable
I've seen way more dramatic numbers and people ride em that's there style

And it's theoretical numbers
Even knowing the numbers doesn't mean you will know how it feels till it's made and tested
 
I don't get why you would be so against it
What if I accomplish the so called impossible feat of building a fully custom ,fully functioning , rideable bike
But like I've said before will post pictures as the build progresses
Yes failures and successes
Are to be expected

1979 CB750 wheelbase is already long.  But, to put it in perspective a 1979 CB750 has a wheelbase of 57in and a 1984 Magna has a wheelbase of 60in.  Do you want it to handle like a Magna?  A GSXR 750 has a wheelbase of 55in.  Not a big difference in distance, but a huge difference in performance.  I'm over simplifying,  but the point is that you want it shorter not longer.

This is not unknown or am I disagreeing
Does a magna handle horrible ???
Does a springer  on a chopper with huge apes  and fat rear tire
Handle well ?? No but that guy loves his bike and rides it
Not my style per say
 But would be fun to ride a few times
This bike will handle fine handle
And it's theoretical
 how do you know how it will handle with the weight of vfr engine instead of cb?? Because oh yes all or nothing I said so the engine will go
It's not used a stressed member on this generation  and will squeeze in the space
We can think of it generally
And a idea  not know it

  I'm not chopping the cb
frame I'm adding mounts
To fit the motor

And I'm not trying to drag my knees in corners either
So however slow the handling is is ok with me as long as I don't have to back up to make u turns like a drag bike

  I'm not being critical.  I like choppers.  I'll be building one this winter.  It's all about working through intention.  A Magna is a cruiser.  Are you building a cruiser?  You're sewing together a CB750 and a VFR750.  That doesn't sound like you're building a cruiser to me. I was honest in my question when I asked you if you want your bike to handle like a Magna.  A Magna does not handle like a CB750, and especially not like a GSXR.  The few inches of wheelbase is a contributing factor to that.  No one is saying it's going to wreck you, at least I'm not.  But, if you want to improve handling you don't lengthen the swing arm. As far as conversations about weight, that's something for your suspension.  Will you have to run stiffer springs?  Will you need to re-valve the forks?

For the record Cxman  I'm not a fan of the chrome slammed out hyabusa
Led lights and way too loud paint job

Yeah I'm going for a cruiser with balls  I'm loving the input it's keeping me on my toes
Making sure I check all my variables
But yeah neither bike is similar  fusing together won't be easy but looks like I'll get a crazy looking bike v4 engine is a nice motor will run forever
