last year my uncle passed away but left me his cb750. Now I am about a foot taller than he was so I will be needing forward controls and will be adding a sissy bar. I have gone to a led all in one tail light. I still need to build a sissy bar and work out the linkage for forwards

aftermarket swingarm or is that a later model 750?

it is a 74 with a wide and long swing arm and progressive shocks. the backbone has been chopped with the original fender loop cut off. i am using a set of Harley forward controls that have a cable brake. i have my cable stops planed but cant find a cable to use. the wiring is kinda fubar but i work for a company that builds firetrucks so i can just bill out everything to fix the electrical at 5% above cost. puts rewiring the bike right around 75 with all said and done with wire,split loom, relays and new fuse block

So progress has been slow with work, school and vacation but today I made some progress on my wireing got my new loom run and just need a few pieces and then it is off to the welder to have the frame damage fixed and I will be cleaning the gas tank

So after scratching my head over issues with wireing I found that the ignition switch was bad and ended up replacing it with a universal switch for a hotrod and now she is running but now I need to finish my sissybar and forward controls. I have a buddy that has the factory grab bar off a cb650c that I will be using to make a sissybar
