Honda CB description

Winner MUST pick up, I will NOT ship!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a 1978 CB750K that I bought off the original owner, in non running condition. I rebuilt the bike about 5 years ago to make it a cafe styled bike. I did not have to tear into the engine, but here is a list of what I did do:
rebuilt the forks, new fork seals
New tires
rebuilt the front brakes
New Front Brake Line
New front brake pads
Newer Throttle Cables, and Clutch Cable 
Adjusted the valves
had the Carbs rebuilt
Changed jet sizes for the cone type air filters and high flow exhaust (not too positive on the type, bought it used on ebay, I think its an old Kerker exhaust, not sure)
Replaced the original tank with a mid 70's tank for a better look (I do have the original tank if you want it)
Repainted the whole bike, including the rims, blacked out engine with polished accents
Replaced the points with a dyna jet pointless ignition
Has the original seat, which has a tear, but I also have a new seat cover that I will include with the bike.

I probably did more, just cant think of it now. I built this to be a daily rider, not a showroom bike. I have put about 5,000 miles on it, including a week long trip to Indiana last summer (2012). It is stored at my folks garage in Kutztown, PA, which is where I will sell it from (the registration expired and its pointless to renew it just to ride it to my house in NJ to sell, plus I don't have a garage - and its always been garaged kept since I rebuilt it. Its an old bike, and it does start up right away once warmed up, but it can be a little hesitant to start when cold, just like most old bikes. I had Clubman bars (cafe style) on it but changed them for the Indiana ride since having the more aggressive stance with clubmans is harsh on my back for such a long ride.

Did you get your bike serviced at George White Slough?

Thu, 18 Aug 2011

Unfortunately, The George White branch at Slough has closed which means the sales, clothing and servicing departments are all gone. I got to know a few of the guys there as they're local to me and helped put my 848 Challenge bike together. If you used to get your bike serviced there, you might wonder where you can now go to get it done.

The Welsh rider and former AMA Pro Racing competitor has had some success at Aragon, getting his first career WSBK podium at the Spanish track in 2012.

Rossi vs. Schumacher

Fri, 14 Nov 2008

When I was a kid, my friends and I would always have this debate on who would be fastest in a race, Superman or the Flash. I always felt that the Flash would be faster because speed’s his thing. He wears a lightning bolt on his chest because he’s as fast as lightning.
