1978 CB750F-Coming along nicely!
Seems like they're really short and uncomfortable...well you did say you wanted it that way so your wife and kids won't ask for too many rides! hahaha. I guess whatever works.

They are too short, I haven't had time to make them longer yet. I just need to get a longer bolt. It is not super comfortable, really cramped back there!

Time for some upgrades, first I'll start with dual piston calipers front and rear, then 836 the motor with a new set of Mikuni carbs.

Nice lift! How comfortable is your '77 with that seat you made? Any planned long trips anytime soon?

It is pretty comfortable, I have done a lot of full day rides and been fine. It is a firm pad so that helps also, I am actually getting the 78 seat redone because they used a much softer pad and you can feel the seat pan which hurts after a few hours riding.

Here are some before and after shots of the caliper and master cylinder upgrades
- Brembo rear master
- Nissin 5/8 front master
- Honda (refurbished) dual piston front and rear calipers

They turned out sweet, I can't wait to ride it to test them out! I am waiting for a 10x1.0 double banjo switch for the Brembo.

Finally arrived today, Race Tech emulators to help the front end from diving so hard under heavy breaking.
