So I get back from my trip after picking up my gixxer. Working Monday, my dad(who hates motorcycles) tells me our family friend has a motorcycle he will give me. He gave me vague info on it. Well, I got it today.

Its a 1975 Honda 750 four. I got it from the second owner. Under 20k original miles, great shape, just needs carb work. Idles, but wont accelerate. Has aftermarket bars, sissy bar(already off), full exhaust, a few covers, etc.

I think my plan is to make the thing an old school bobbed cruiser. I want to stuff a fatty back tire in it, and will have my 95 gsxr swinger free here soon, so that might make its way in there(I already measured, and its close). Going to keep alot of the stuff on it, yet going to yard alot off. Anyway, build won't be that intense yet. Just a quick build to make it cool until the snow falls. Here are some pics.(better pics soon, forgot camera)





You wish you had my sissy bar!


And it with its other two brothers. Kinda looks outta place eh? :doh:

Nice project, I have been looking for a CB to do a cafe project with, can't wait to see how this turns out.

So my detail for the day moved to tomorrow, so I got to DW for a while. First thing last night when I dropped it off, I scrapped that damn sissy bar. This is where it started.



Then off came the carbs and apart they went.



Got them back on and it runs really damn good. It only idles for about 10 seconds though, and I was told about a passageway to clean, so I'll do that soon.

Then a buddy brought me a set of dirt bike bars, so I mocked them up to see how I feel.



And I'm not sure how I feel. It looks too stock-ish I think. I want something more oldschool and with more attitude. Anyway, hopefully I get some more work tomorrow or Friday for sure. Overall, I'm into it $8, for carb cleaner and a fuel filter.

Those bars look alot better, but I think that some clubman bars would fit it perfect. Rep for D'ing W!

im gonna go out on a limb here and say that if those were a little lower rise those bars would be spot on . but for some free bees that you got those things are solid. lose the fenders tighten that rear end up a tad

header wrap for the win !!!!

Looks good man!!

as for bars.. my vote would be straight/drag style... would let you get lower but still wide enough for comfort and control.

Well, the bars work for now, but I am thinking about the drag or flat bars. I think I will be able to get the look I'm going for with them. I was going to keep the gauges and all, but the more I think about it, this will be a bare bones cruise around town bike, so fuck anything legal. I'll probably throw one mirror on it, just cause I like the look, and wanna see when I'm getting pulled over.

I'm moving ALL controls off the bars. I hate busy bars. I might just eliminate half of the features anyway, we will see.

I got alot of ideas last night, browsing. This won't be cafe styled, and some of you may not like it, but I don't really give a fuck. This is a free bike, which will be just to mob around town for the time being. Who knows what will happen this winter.
