I think all CB 900 uses shaft drive instead of chain.

Isn't it possible to change that??

cb900's are shaft driven but it looks like a 750. those 900's have that heel toe shifter for the 10 speed tranny

I'm pretty sure it's a 750F. Can't really tell the year. The forks are definitely F model forks. I found out the hard way that the F is different from all the others with the front end. The F's forks are closer together than C's and the others. I now have a couple extra sets of upper and lower trees for these bikes.

thats funny rust. i have the EXACT same supply of triples. i bought a whole F front end thinking the calipers would work with the C disc. NOPE

This is starting to interest me.Not all 900,s are shaft driven. It is the square cylinder heads that are throwing me off a little.I still think 900. Some thing like this.

Sure wish the owner would see this thread and chime in.

After doing some quick, drunken research, I thought they shared almost all the same parts minus fenders and the air forks up front. Wrong. Outside the frame they're all different. I have an entire shelf in my garage of spare parts that will go on who knows what. Not to mention the carbs that some douche sold me saying they were from a 750 DOHC and I'm pretty sure they're from a 550 or 650. Not really sure and not really interested in taking the time to figure it out yet.

One thing I can say is no matter how hard up I am for cash I'd never fuck someone and sell them a part with numbers I found in a manual knowing they weren't the same as what I was selling or what they were looking for.

Are there different rake specifications on the various models of honda 750's of those years?

rustrocket84
10-27-2010, 7:31 PM
I'll check the owner's manual for rake specs. I believe the frames are all the same, but I could be wrong, as I never really have looked at them. I know the trees are different between the models for sure. The first one looks to be a F model, judging by the forks. It's cool seeing them done I'm still working on mine almost 3 years later. Seems like there is always some other obligation that comes up, and when I had the money to do it I found a van I'd been wanting for a long time.

Is there a website that will tell me the Rake specs on the various Honda's of this vintage?

It's not in the factory service manual. I'll check the Haynes manual I have. Maybe some old reviews for the bikes? I have the factory manual in PDF if you need a copy of it let me know.

In the early to mid 80's the cb900 came in two models- cb900f supersport which was a standard 5 speed and chain driven and the cb900custom which was shaft drive with the 5speed tranny and the hi/low secondary tranny going to a shaft.

I tend to agree, they just look half done. Definitely brings this build down a bit but the rest of looks great.

Just thought I would mention that the hi/lo tranny can be unbolted from the motor on shafty 900/1000 motors so that you can go to left side chain drive. There is a part or two to be made so you can bolt a sprocket on the shaft but thats it.

If you go over to the Dueces Wild site there is a step by step to doing it. Really not a big deal and makes using a shafty motor more than possible with chain drive.

That bike is still a bike, he is sooo close to making it a chop, first, lose the tubes right over the motors that loop, then finish up the hard tail lower section, being that type of frame has engine cradle tubes that could be morphed into the lower section of the hardtail, which would only take about an hour to two hours to do, and really be on a better path to a real chopper!!!! The only types of bikes I have used the swing arm section and left them like that were the cm400ts, and the cb450 nitehawk types, only because the motor was the lower section of the frame in those types, which is another reason I will not chop half frame bikes, hoping to make it better by doing so, only making it worse by attempting it, when it comes to those type of bikes, the only way to make them cool is to have two motors in one frame! Then it would be cool!!! The cb 750s dohc types are cool once they lose there frames stockness
