cb750 butt naked project

Just picked up a 1980 cb750 for bob and chop. The motor is pretty sound other the some cam chain adjustments. the carbs have already been jetted and the air box removed, a rough chop has been don to the ass end and the wiring is very roughly rigged up.

First things first we'll tear her all apart. I've already started tearing down the ass end, removing suspension, fenders, exhaust and covers. ended up with a pile of plastic that has no business being on a scooter.

For this bobber it think I'm going to go with a modification of the 70's "Kong" style frame in order to keep some shorty shocks on it yet still have the drop seat look. Should be fun, not quite as intense as an FNA build, but fun none the less.

Check your service manual for appropriate oil levels.

Clementine and The Bushing

The deadline is fast approaching with less than a month left before Daytona. The Exhaust, battery box, headlight and some loose ends have been finished up and the bike is ready for a teardown to begin the powdercoating/ painting process. I have missed my window to get chrome done, but that can come later. ...

My beautiful Wendy concentrating while machining the timing side bushing on her 68 Triumph 500. The Crankshaft took a little more cleaning up than the +.030 bushing would take, so we make a +.038 bushing that Wendy is roughing in.

My Scoot Project

With a lot of help from FNA custom cycles my scoot has come along way.
From struts and license plate mounting all the way the the tune up and carb work that got it running.

Next up is remounting the battery, rear fender, and sissy bar, putting on new handle bars and probably changing the license plate mount back to vertical.
