Matt's Honda CB750 Chop


We met Matt in Yuba City, California at the Old-Stf open house. His home-built Honda was an eyecatcher with a high build quality and perfect lines. Here's the short, sweet story of the bike with the questionable origin and pedigree. Thanks for giving us the lowdown, Matt.



Engine, year and make, model, modifications: '76 CB750 (I think)

Frame: Think it's an Amen but if any CB gurus out there know, please pipe up

Fork: Narrow springer, not sure who made it

Chassis mods: Extended the neck and deraked it

Tire/wheel size and style: Front is a 19" laced to a Hallcraft spool. Rear is a 16" harley setup with a 43-tooth sprocket

Favorite thing about this bike: Pretty much everything

Next modification: Paint, chrome, highway pegs

Other mods, accessories, cool parts, etc: I guess the little headlight is cool. Works like shit but who really needs to see in the dark. Stacks are cool, anyone want to volunteer some tuning tips? 

Any building or riding story or info you'd like to include:  No awesome ride stories yet since i just finished it but they will come. I traded a '65 Norton for it and redid the whole damn thing. thats my build story

Thanks to: I've got to say thanks to my lady; thanks to my buddy Jared for the seat not bad for his first try; My buddy Chris for the fender; Vince for the extra hands and beer; My parents for allowing me to take over their shop; I guess my friend Greg too, even though he wasn't much help

Badass!!! Honda 4's are fucking MEAN looking!

I love it. CB750s are fun bikes, I have a ratty '74 I just can't give up. It isn't worth anything but is fast and reliable!

Blazin' up the foothills in style. Always good to see you at THROWBACKS shindigs...

Best part about this bike.. matches Matt's personality. Laid back, humble, and built to ride. He finds ways to make the parts with minimal tools.

Man, looking at that beast makes me want to get off my ass and finish my CB. Nice work!

Commented on 9-15-2011 At 08:54 am

Nicely done Matt, that Honda is special, let the ride stories begin

Handbuilt in a shop with no name by a man with a day job (presumably, but with this economy...). My kind of bike. Thanks for showing us more Hondas.

Perfect lookin 750 chop man, regarding that jetting with the stacks, just finished a jetting job for a customers 76' 750 bobber with a very similar pipe set up, same round top carbs and stacks. it ran best with 130 mains and #40 slow jets, air screws 1 turn out.
Didnt have to mess with the needle clip position , but if 130 or 135 mains dont get rid of that 1/4 throttle flat spot when you try and blip it quick, then raise them needles up
