Bare Bone Rides Custom 1979 Honda CB750 Cafe Racer Build (Fired-up and Running)

The boyz at BBR (Bare Bone Rides, Inc.) finished this build back in November of 2011. It started off as a CB750 that we picked-up at an Insurance Auction. Solid motor and no frame damage - just needed a new tank and new handle bars ... a perfect platform for a custom Cafe Racer style build! Check out more photos, some history and the trophy this bike took at a recent show at or on our facebook page at Thanks for looking folks - we definitely appreciate your time ... and your feedback! The current owner purchased her from us via ebay ... and he is local so we see this bike a lot in the neighborhood - he still can't wipe that grin off his face every time we see him!!!

Honda CB750 Cafe Racer Build - Gas Tank Dent Repair
The gas tank on my CB project bike has a dent on the rear side that I attempted to repair with a paintless dent puller that I picked up from Harbor Freight tools for cheap. Here is the process I went through to try to remove, or at least, partially repair the dent. The rule of "you get what you pay for" reared its ugly head here, as the dent puller that only cost me $13.00 pretty much failed to do much of anything. It might be fine for small dings in your car door, but unfortunately I used every last bit of the glue that came with the kit so I won't be able to try that theory. Maybe I was being too optimistic and should have tried to work from the edge toward the center of the dent, I'm not real sure. The glue didn't stick well enough to really try anyway. It might have helped a little bit, but the dent is still there. Harbor Freight dent puller --
