A PROJECT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON!

I've been off the forum for some time, but busy! I helped built this custom 1972 Honda CB750 in 1982 when working at Bsker Bike Works in Charlotte. Found it in Indiana. Been parked for 32 yrs and I bought her back. I've completed restored it, going through every nut and bolt on the bike and making many upgrades It's 1020cc's w RC Engineering Gorilla block, 34mm Smoothbores, full race cam, ported head, original Calfab swingarm, undercut the gears in tranny so it won't pop outta gear under power, marzocchi shocks, etc, etc...

Re: A PROJECT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON!

With all those fishing poles how did you get time to work on the bike?

Nice job.

Re: A PROJECT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON!

Great restore! I like it a lot. You have yourself a cool looking hipster cafe racer with some attitude off the line. Be careful where you ride that or you may cause an accident from people staring at you. I hope you have the cool hipster gear to wear with it to complete the look.

Re: A PROJECT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON!

The bike looks great. A long time buddy in WV had two of them and he actually assembled his second in the very early 70's from a crate shipped to the US from Japan. I think he paid less than $1,000 + $100 to ship it. I recognized the 4 vacuum gauges he had to build, on your wall. Seems like I remember it was the fastest bike to 100 and then back to 0. Yours is a beautiful restoration.

It is always nice to see an old friend pop in again. The bike is truly a work of art. Enjoy!

Re: A PROJECT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON!

Very nice. I have to say that I wasn't a fan of the king queen seats and that doesn't appear to be changing. Hard to find anything negative about the ole standards. Nice job...

Hilarious! The real question is, "With my motorcycles to work on, how do I ever find time to FISH?!!"
