Honda CB description

This is a completely customized Honda CB750 turned into a Bad-Ass Café Racer.  This motorcycle started as a clean, running, stock 1978 CB750.

The motorcycle was completely stripped down to frame.  The motor was completely gone through by a certified motorcycle mechanic who is certified in foreign makes off motorcycles.  There were no issues noted with the motor, and all tolerances were checked and within spec before it was put back together. 

All the fabrication work was done by myself, and if you have any questions, please feel free to email me. 

Some of the fabrication work includes:

Front and rear rim are 40 spoke Harley Narrow-glide rims.

Front forks are GSXR 600 model with dual 4 piston front calipers.

Billet Aluminum race angle front handlebars.  These bars were fabricated with a lower ride angle for that race feel and look. 

Sportbike forward controls.

LCD turn signals front and back

Dakota Digital electronic speedometer

Fabricated gas tank to include a cover to hide the oil bag

Aftermarket high output coils with new plug wires and plugs

Stainless steel braided oil lines

Billet aluminum velocity stacks for each carburetor (debris screen is present in all four velocity stacks)

Frame modifications to allow for shortened tail section and relocation of rearsets

Steering dampener

The rear drum brake was removed and replaced with a single piston disk brake from GSXR sport bike.

Glass-mat battery replaces old acid battery

Anodized aluminum bolts that hold on the chromed covers on the motor

ALL chromed pieces (aside from the rims) were completed using the best quality copper / nickel / chrome process.

Fabricated fiberglass rear cowling

Keyless ignition system

40 tooth rear sprocket from Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Both front and rear tire has inner tubes

 

Disclosures:

Front tire will have to be replaced in near future. 

Being that it is a 30 year old bike there are three small oil leaks that will have to eventually be addressed during the next oil change.  The oil drain plug will need a rubber grommet; it now has a very small leak.  The gasket on the shift lever housing where the shift lever enters the motor has a small leak around the gasket. And lastly, there is a small leak from the valve cover gasket.  Note: a complete gasket kit can be found online for less than 40 dollars.

The electronic speedometer needs to be set again.  It requires a flat stretch of road one mile long.  Takes 10 seconds to set, as long as you have a mile mapped out.

These bikes require the carbs to be tuned with a vacuum gauge.  It’s time for these to be done again.  Like all things 30 years old, this motorcycle doesn’t like cold morning starts.  Once it has been started and warmed up, it starts within the first revolution of the first piston.

 

Extras:

With the purchase of this motorcycle, I will include a complete service manual for this year’s model, I will include all the wiring diagrams for the digital speedometer and rear brake light / turn signal, and I will also include an electronic ignition.  I had planned on using the electronic ignition during the build, but the bike was already put together with the ignition arrived, and the bike was running like a champ; if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

 

Last word:

This bike has been entered into a few local bike shows.  It has either won, or placed second or third in almost every event it was registered in.  For those of you who have make it to Daytona Bike Week, you can understand the competition there, and it placed second in its class at the Crazy Horse bike show.

Also, if you are a new rider, or not familiar with motorcycles, please purchase with caution.  This is not the brand new, off the showroom, bike for sissy boys (or girls).  If you are a rider who appreciates vintage bikes, and likes the idea of bare bones riding, then please give this bike a new home.

 

Thank you, and Happy Bidding!
