    Sorry guys, no updates in awhile. Business is doing terrible + a few other busy things. The shitty monoshock's gotten an update (stock GSX-R geometry). Will post photos soon.

    Jeez, for my sake if only we could've had this discussion beforehand. Yeah a definitely agree a Ø19mm cutout is a bit big for a Ø22mm aluminum bar. I'm not an engineer but I was previously an architectural designer -- from what I remember through working with engineers, circular cutouts do not...

    1979 CB750 DOHC Monoshock Build

    Alright, so I'm pretty flattered by everyone's concerns for my safety. For anyone looking to install the Posh Switch on a Renthal bar it seems like this is not recommended and done at your own risk. I'm going to keep these on the build to mock-up only. They'll be swapped with heavier LSL...

    1979 CB750 DOHC Monoshock Build

    I refuse to die at least until I watch you eat that hat. I'll test these out around the block once this thing is running. If they're really that janky I'll swap to LSL Stainless bars. If I don't make it I'll have my brother update the thread to let you all know aluminum bars + big holes are not...

    1979 CB750 DOHC Monoshock Build

    Thank you sir. Unfortunately my small girly hands wouldn't be able to reach that far. The setup is quite comfortable this way -- feels exactly the same as my Duc. I'll look out for something like it next time I'm tool shopping -- can never have enough tools!

    What's that tool called? I was planning to just carefully chamfer using a dremel tool + sanding bit.

    1979 CB750 DOHC Monoshock Build

    Good call. I'll clean everything up and make sure to keep checking on it as part of my pre-ride inspection. The switch is pretty tiny, just looks big all zoomed in. It's 41mm width, 18mm height, sticks out 8mm from the bars. (1.6" x 0.7" x 0.3" for you savages). There's an extra 4.75mm (0.19")...

    1979 CB750 DOHC Monoshock Build

    Lol damn, I'll figure out what to do with the bars later. I've read that cleaning up the hole to become a perfect circle + chamfering the edges will reduce the chance of stress fractures. The bike is still a long way away from running. The larger 19mm hole is there to accommodate the three way...

    1979 CB750 DOHC Monoshock Build

    Shit I feel like I didn't really think this one through. The Renthal's curves and finish are just so pretty! Will polish up the holes ASAP. The switch is for a 7/8" or a 1", although I've never seen these installed on Renthals, mostly steel bars on choppers. I'm thinking I could build some sort...

    College Kid Cafe Racer Build

    Wow, what a great thread. Sucks that I missed all the drama, hahaha. No a CB450 motor will not fit out of the box. The frames are so different. You could always make things fit but this is either huge $$ or time. See if you can ebay a new motor they're usually not very expensive. Good luck!

    1979 CB750 DOHC Monoshock Build

    Ah shit I do love wheelies. Any method of reinforcement that might work? Perhaps I could create some sort of external brace... No I love the criticism. The way I'm built I can't be offended. Just not possible. For the turbo setup I could eat ramen for a couple of months and splurge on titanium...

    1979 CB750 DOHC Monoshock Build

    I'm more entertaining the notion than anything. The friend of mine that builds these things has a 400~whp GSXR. I trust his skills in the area. If I do end up with the turbo setup I'll be sure to let you know first. I'll expect a video of the said hat eating ;D In regards to the bar -- totally...

    1979 CB750 DOHC Monoshock Build

    Had a friend come by to look over my wiring diagram and figure out how to install my new bar control setup. Everything looks great and I will finish up the wiring job once the new ignition arrives. Since the thing is a custom I've decided to reduce my bar controls as much as possible. I really...
