I think I've abandoned my satin black scheme. I primed and base-coated my panels today, and I need to find out if the colour I'm after is also available as an acrylic. I'm not set up to spray 2K.


For those of you familiar with the model, you may notice I've filled the louvres in the side panels ;)

Just another 'point of difference'.

Well, I finally got the rear tyre I was after, and it didn't take long to fit it. So now that we 're not ashamed of our rear-end...

DAMN YOU!

There is nothing I want to do more right now then to be working on my bike... Too bad I'm away from home...

Otherwise the kick in the ass I need.

Mind taking a shot with your body parts just sitting on there? I know you've mocked it up already!

Well, to be honest, I haven't put the silver stuff on, because that's not the final cover, and I already know what the silver bikes looks like ;) If the weather clears up, I'll give it a shot for ya.

Hang in there fella, you'll get back to that thing in good time. I think mine has been dragging on for about a year now. I change my mind too much :-\

Looks OEM.
No, looks like an OEM to people who don't know shit about the bike! Which is cool to me! This is the way Honda would have made it if the technology had been there at the time of its production. This bike should handle much better that stock, have better apex acceleration, and have far less corner sway under power. All of this with classic looks = WINNER! I love the subtle styling and resto-mod design you have taken. I am in love with this bike! I think you could make it really cool if you use a OEM pait layout but with colors that the factory never offered! Or use a race paint job from that era Honda race bike!

Great work man, killer bike!

Ruffles a few purists' feathers but WTF ;D

I don't know - you could pretty easily mistake it for the later model 750:



Great work though bikeboy ;)

nice project! I think you'll keep the purists at bay since that frame hasn't met a hacksaw ;D
