    Glad we got the 'right way of making electrical connectons' issue sorted ;) Not much progress, got cold outside and tackled a few jobs inside the house to keep the missus happy... In my spare time looking into deleting the fuse box on the steering wheel, trying to source some regular handlebar...

    1982 CB750F brought back from the death

    So I got a bit busy last weekend, I hooked up the hydraulic clutch but the master cilinder had a pinhole in the casting, leaking oil everywhere and unable to build pressure. At this point i had it with this cheap sh*t and decided to just bin it. Since I had to take it out I wanted to do an...

    1982 CB750F brought back from the death

    Got bored yesterday so decided to make a chain cover from some leftover aluminum I had laying around. Pretty happy with the result. Also started on putting on an hydraulic clutch. Curious about how well it will work. Make myself a bracket to mount the slave cylinder so i didn't have to cut...

    1982 CB750F brought back from the death

    As far as I know lots of people switch them out for CB1100F swing arms but they are hard to come by. Something about the tubular design which flexes quite a bit... Hope this will solve it kind of and otherwise it at least looks good. Only thing is I have to ditch the centre stand, but it's...

    1982 CB750F brought back from the death

    Since the front forks were leaking I took out the forklegs, stripped them down and put them back together with new seals and dustcaps. Also treated the legs on a new coat of paint. First thing to receive some paint on this bike. Since the new shocks were in (YSS Bravo twinshocks) I decided I...

    1982 CB750F brought back from the death

    First drive was kinda short, noticed some weird noises, turned out sice i had a 4-1 marving exhaust (which came with the bike) the center stand had nothing on the left to stop it from going too high. So it was hitting the chain and i also forgot to put the bolts in to stop the mouning pin from...

    As soon as the house was finished and we moved in and were settled I remembered i had this thing laying around and decided to give it a go. Got the mangled bolt out, stripped the bike further down. Took the carbs out and gave them a clean, cut out any accessories made on the wiring loom and...

    You just need some 2 compound clear coat. that way the gas can't solve your paint. or let a painter do it, they always use 2 coumpound lacquer.
