I like the new length and the bracing. Do you think you'll have to run a mid-chain tensioner ?
Not sure. The length really doesn't seem bad. I'm waiting on the screws to mount the rear sprocket then I'll measure it up. The local dealer didn't have a long 520 chain in stock, so I have to order. I have a tensioner here just in case.

Nothing like getting a couple of days off for Fall Break and literally spending all day on a bracket to mount your coils #noglory

Thats a clean and tight mount. I like it and with the hardtail the rear tire looks better to me too.

Re: CB750 No Plunger Hellride

Thanks, Mike.

A couple quick little updates...



Brakes: I have to figure out a tab for the rear stay. Something I can try to machine tomorrow.




Sprockets: I'm running a 38 tooth rear and a 14 tooth counter. The counter sprocket is an XL250 sprocket, with a machined spacer. Honda ran a common counter shaft tooth for several bikes, which is really convenient when you want to convert a CB750 to 520 chain.

Re: CB750 No Plunger Hellride

This is getting dangerously close to looking like you know what you're doing.
Once you're no longer a hack you're not welcome here anymore ;D

I promise, I'm still a hack.

I've decided to go with a first gen XL350 tank, because I like the shape and I have an idea for placement of my ignition switch. I saw opportunity in the cutout for the carb. This tank is just for mocking. A good tank is en route...



Seat pan is basically done. Waiting on the springs, then mount. Covering may be the last thing I do.

Man Eric, that is nice, just wish I had some of your gumption to do something to the "too many" projects I have.

Re: CB750 No Plunger Hellride

Made a remote m/c and reservoir so I can run a simple cable control on the bars. The unit will get welded underneath the tank and a short Z50r cable will actuate the lever.

The BMW m/c is too wide and too tall, it’s built for the top of the frame, it’s prone to leak, and I gave mine to Charlie at Thaw.
