Custom Build - CB750F Cafe Bike
Working on this slowly for the past couple years. After refurbishing old
parts, scouring eBay for more parts, fabricating custom parts, I finally
have her running well. I still need to upholster the seat pan, but it looks
cool without. Gas tank is bare metal and I'm going to leave it that way.
Some things I did here:
- based off a 1980 CB750F Supersport
- handmade seat pan
- custom wiring
- cafe clubman bars
- GSXR brake lever
- rebuilt calipers
- rebuilt carburetors, that took forever.
- new chain
- new clutch
- Ducati tailight
- updated running lights and signals
- rebuilt forks
- ...and many more.

CB550 Cafe Racer Startup
NEW VIDEO : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1s6kWmti21Y&feature=youtu.be
I started a cafe conversion/restoration on my 1978 CB550 last summer. This
is the first firing up since the project began.
I love the sound of the Exhaust, but
the carbs have yet to be dialed in - so I'm sure it will be even better.
