Default CB750F rat / fighter

Hey guys, Just joined today to post some pics of my bike. I have not owned a bike since 96. Before that I had all the ninjas, GSXRs, V-max, etc. I was surfing the net and discovered rat bikes and street fighters. I got the bug and went out looking for a cheap, solid bike I could screw around with and make my own monster. I found a 1981 CB750F for $700.00. Then I proceded to destroy it. But now it is my custom creation and I love it.

Basically I just put on clubman cafe bars, blacked out the wheels, gave her a nice flat black spray job, cut of the rear end, cut the seat in half, tossed out the fenders and rear pegs, cut the shocks and lowered it. I just have to get rid of that huge tailight for a small one and I should be about done. Just rigged up the rear light so I could take her for a spin.

Also, let me say that I have no mechanical ability and am proud to call myself a "hack". I was just excited that it started and all the lights worked when I was done. I see that most guys on here are very talented and create cool bikes. I just wanted to tinker in the garage and get away from the WIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!

looks good from the front and once you come up with something better for the tail lights it'll look 100% better

id say, lose the big ass turn signals, lose the side panels, get some bar end mirrors.

Nice start though

I just rigged up the stock tailight so I could ride it around until I make up a mount and put on a smaller light. I put the small turn signals on the rear end but the front signals have three wires. The rear ones only have two. How do you mount up the small ones on the front w/the extra wire? Like I said, I am not very mechanically knowledgable.

The third wire is so they are on as running lights all the time too, then when you turn the signal on, the running light will turn off and it will flash like a normal signal. If you want to 2 wire light up there, just connect it to the ground and the signal + then it just won't be on as a running light anymore.

The 3rd wire is probably for the running light of the blinker assembly. I used them for power to a fog light on my CB360.

Looks good, can't wait to see it with new blinkers and tail light.

only other thing i noticed is that the gauges make the front end look bulyk as well, maybe a smaller guage cluster, or a single speedo would really pull it togethor
