    Default My cb750 build.

    Bought a this cb750 a couple months back from a friend on the cheap. Pretty rough shape, didn't run, pipes were rotted out, and the front caliper was frozen. Got the itch to start on it the other day. Got it running and started taking stuff apart. This is the bike the day I brought it home.

    I had a gsxr 750 front end and swing arm that I was going to put on it but just wasnt feeling the big swing arm. I then found a set of roadking wheels on craiglist. I had the front hub narrowed to fit the gsxr forks and the rotors drilled to fit the roadking wheel.




    I had a gs550 swing arm and a set of covered shocks laying around so I decided to try them. I bought a set of fatboy tanks and a set of shinkos today. Threw everything together quick to see how it sits. I think I'm gonna lower the forks more and then cut the frame up. I plan on cutting out the triple backbone and dipping the seat rails to start.

    Very nice. Dig the wheels. I like the "bulky" looking tires.

    That looks amazing! Nice work, can't wait to see where you end up.
    A GS1000 alloy swingarm fits easy with a couple of spacers at the pivot.
    Is a bit wider at the rear though.

    Got some more done on the bike. I got the right bearings for the front end and had the stem machined to fit right. I shortened the fork internals to lower the front end 11/2" and put in new fork seals. Got bearings to make the rear wheel work with the suzuki axle. I made spacers and a caliper hanger to run an sv650 front caliper on the rear. Still need to make some sort of anchor. Found out I need a 1/4" spacer for the rear sprocket to line up. So I ordered a spacer, chain, and front sprocket. I cut up a virago tank I had and just tacked it together. I think I'm gonna end up using it.

    Dude, I feel in love with this just after seeing the RK wheels on the gsxr front! Makes me regret selling my 70' cb750 last week... No money in the foreseeable future to put into it, so had to let someone else do something with it. Some day... But LOVE what your doing here!

    Sorry, I haven't been working on it much. Been working on my Camaro and house a lot. I did get everything done as far as a roller goes. Wheels, chain, and brakes are all good to go. I bought the tubing for the frame so when I get some free time I'm gonna start on that.

    A couple pics of how it's going to sit. I got a 4 into 1 header and I'm going to use a small stainless muffler. Not sure what to do for a fender or build a seat/tail section similar to my gs550. I bought a solo seat and planed on bending the seat rails to match the curve of the seat but I'm not sure now.
