Yup, looks pretty cool, enough simularities, same motor. I'm sure if you need help with the wrenching there'll be plenty of advice. Welcome!

Ya eventually going to hardtail the rear, or ya going to leave the struts?

hey thanks guys. i plan on stretching it about 4-5" with an actual hardtail, shes way too short for me, next will be custom foward controls and new blinkers. then i think i will call her done. i need to work on my 750 and get her on the road.

Nice work Henry, I had a chance to get two CB750's for $500. One had title, the other spare motor and parts. Just can't come up with the cash right now. Would be a sweet project. I'm bummed =(

For 500, heck, I'd be really bummed! Thats a great deal, forsure. I did pick up a GS1100 as a parts bike the other day. Price was right, free!
Going to be robbing the forks, tank and other bits for my 750. But the 1100 will roll over....got me thinking there!
