What are you guys doing for rearsets. I have a few ideas to get at this winter but any suggestions would be appreciated.

What set is that? I am trying to find one that fits my 79 k if my home built job falls through.
I think it was called the "dimpol".
I use short low clip ons so I wanted some tank clearance. It worked out really well

What rear wheel you got on there rocketrich?
Good lookin DOHC.

Stock comstar.
Dude: I don't think so...
Looks more like a Zooks snowflake that I've seen mounted on other DOHC CB750's but not quite... that's why I asked.
Stock Commies are more solid than this... last pic is my Zook's rear, close but no guitar. Hmmmmm.

Then I am stumped as well. It is a 1982 Nighthawk 750sc, and the wheel matches stock photos on the interweb.

Ooooohhhhh, there ya go. That's what I needed. Thanks !
Nighthawk I did not know.. That make sense, stock wheels for a SC then.
Now you got me wondering if those will swap with regular plain old everyday Comstars (reversed or original). They look to be a hell of a lot lighter. ::)

I'd think that they would.

This thing is amazing! Coolest use of color!
This is awesome! I love it. Thanks for opening my mind to the power of using paint matching the frame to "hid" the shape of the tank. Brilliant!

Ironlizard, nice work! I like the upholstered seat a lot.

Notlob, I like the bike, and that was a great build thread. Nice to see an idea executed so well.

Mine, too, is a work in progress.

What bars are those dude? It's the style i'm leaning towards for my build.

OK..now ^THOSE^ are Suzuki wheels, I recognize the snowflake spoke pattern and the slots in the rotors as the same on my GS. I know I have seen this swap several times now on DOHC CB's, what gives? ???

canyoncarver: I like the CB900F shocks, wish I would have snagged a set I saw on e-bay a while back

Yep, wheels/discs came off an 83' Tempter I believe. Nicer than the comstars and better discs too. The shocks were there when I picked up the bike but I really dig 'em.
