Up for auction is my recently built 1982 Honda cb750. First and foremost this bike is a rider, it was built for greater braking handling and acceleration it is meant to go and less show, however with that said this bike and I have been featured recently in Pipeburn's publications along with being re-posted all over the web and won some trophies in vintage classes at local bike shows, but again its a very clean great looking bike but is not perfect it is after all made mostly with recycled parts from other bikes. Copy and paste this to get to the Pipeburn article: I wanted to add that I really hate to see this bike go so soon would love to keep it longer for it's publicity but really looking to expand into a bigger building trying to grow our name right now and have other projects I would like to complete, and some one is going to get one heck of a custom CB that not only will grab attention where ever it goes but also has the riding ability to back it up. I could write a book on the efforts to make a bike like this but will just hit the main things: Engine is stock with exception of CB900f camshafts new valve cover gasket, timing/valves adjusted, engine covers polished new gaskets for covers as well as Alloy Bolts hardware. Front end is from a early 90's CBR 600 f2, stock cb750 stem pressed and welded onto cbr lower tree, upper yoke, forks (new fluid and seals), rim, calipers, rotors, fender etc... all from F2. Rear end is mid 90's CBR 600 F3, swing arm, 5" rear wheel with new 48t sprocket, custom shims for pivot bolt, new 530x112 chain, caliper, rotor, etc... Bike Master 7/8 superbike bars mounted to upper tree using vintage KTM bar mounts. 1978 Suzuki GS 550 gas tank with new Pingel Racing petcock adapter plate to run 3/8 male npt type petcocks new Harley style chrome petcock.(paint and prep on tank is good but not perfect) The Bonneville Shop 7" carbon head light bucket added a Halogen lamp that has built in leds wired as front indicators. Carbon looking bar ends and levers. Cone type filters with stainless bands instead of big hose clamps. The hand controls/switches I pulled off a bike I parted out I'm almost positive it was a early 2000's Katana. Polished upper tree and engine side covers not mirror polish didn't want chrome shine but they look great and there is a lot of time into them sanding and polishing. AceWell digital speedometer 3700mx has speed tachometer hi beam indicator neutral light + more not there best but very fitting for this type of machine. Honda cbr rear sets with new foot rests (pegs).. Custom sub frame with a very comfortable coffee bean color cafe style seat with a small wrapped hump. Dunlop Sport Max Q2 tires 180/55/17 rear and 120/70/17 front. Integrated Led tail light strip with signals. New old stock OEM Suzuki gas cap for tank. New ytx9bs AGM battery in a fabricated battery box located under bike, behind rear of engine also using a Suzuki battery strap. Vance and Hines Vintage 4into1 in great shape with baffles in tact very nice sound and loud when you open it up New jets from Dime City 70/122 this combo has been working great for me here in Ohio obviously if you take the bike to different elevation or cold/hotter/humid etc.. it may need adjusted to your area. Inside of carbs cleaned inspected replaced some hardware out sides brushed off and lightly solvent cleaned but the engine cases and carbs still have there original finish so there is dirt/grime chips to finish on motor, I really don't like to paint motors always feels like your hiding something this bike has been around for 30+ years its heart (engine) earned that finish! Stock wire harness has been shortened but everything is still there everything is neatly tucked wrapped and hidden, under tank houses flasher relay, fuse panel and solenoid, under the sub frame towards front of seat mounted are the igniters and r/r. There is labeled wires in the headlight bucket for a horn they are already wired to the switch I can even throw in a used horn if your state requires one, I thought maybe get a new small one and hide it in the bucket itself should be enough room. I am sure I didn't touch on every little detail like new bearings and hardware through out but I imagine you get the most of it and there is a walk around video plus lot's of pictures. Being as it is a old bike there is no warranty but you and whoever owns the bike in the future will get and endless supply of help with any questions about the bike how things were done I will even work on the bike maintenance if your near by or can bring it to me. Basically whatever support I can give and others who have bought my bikes metal art etc... can attest to that. Any questions just ask and thanks for looking.
