    Default cb750 70's chopper!

    I got this cb from a buddy of mine, it needs some love and care but I'm totally stoked on what the final product will look like. Almost built my xs650 into a long bike, glad I didn't. Harman front end, 21" with a minidrum, drag specialties king n' queen, octogon oil bag, came with a low tunnel sporty tank but will have a prism tank when all is said and done... Now if I can just keep focused on the xs I'm in the middle of.

    That thing will require two hits of acid before painting it! Cool

    thanks for all the good feedback, this thing has overtaken my brain. The paint will definitely be out there, i'll have to be in that right mind if ya follow. It is a minidrum up front that is needing a few things to be tip top. Good news is that the rockers are movin on the front end and i've got marvel oil soaking on top of the pistons.

    Been a while so here's an update. The engine is officially un-seized, and has been soda blasted to get the crusty crinkle paint gone. Bill over at Executive Choppers was kind enough to not only help me out with getting the proper lower tree/stem, but also emailed me some pics of a cb they have in their shop that confirmed the frame was built by Harman as well. So here I am fuckin stoked to be building my own Harman chopper. Also I had the frame blasted and the cracks were welded up by my pal Kelly @ http://haifleybros.blogspot.com , I found a cute little 17" front with a minidrum at Goodguys last week, and my buddy Brains sold me a prism tank he picked up off of craigslist this morning. And last but not least, it looks like I am selling a pile of hot rod parts this week that will provide the dough for my carb kits, electronic ignition, rear tire etc...




    And now my computer is being a shit, so I 'll have to post this, restart, and post some pics.

    It's funny you should ask, I took a few while trying to figure out the builder.

    Interesting single post frame. That has just a fantastic and classic stance. You could put damn near any tank and seat on it and it would stand out, just from the design standpoint....

    Update time!
    It's been an eventful couple of weeks. As of right now the dyna electronic ignition is installed, I picked up an Avon 16-5.00 rear tire, a 17" front runner with a mini drum and rideable rubber (now I can swap back and forth with the 21"), the carbs are disassembled and being rebuilt, dyna coils and wires are headed my way from lowriders by summers, stainless spoke and nipple set for the rear (the rear hub is coming back from the polisher this week too), and finned clutch cover are coming from ebay auctions. I picked up this killer fiberglass rear fender that my friend Chris is going to mimick and build out of steel for the rigid frame, some spoon passenger pegs and shorter prism tank from the Shrine swap on sunday. Also, I picked up a ridiculously badass king/queen from a buddy that sends this thing over the top (pictures to come). I have been swapping the tanks back and forth for the last couple days and can't get my brain around which is "right" on this bike. The day I got the short tank I was ready to turn around and ebay the thing, then yesterday it looked a little better, and today better still, but I'm still diggin the shit outta the long tank....
