    Honda '75 CB750 build down South

    Hello from Savannah, GA. Thought I'd share my progress on a cafe build of an old CB-750 K1 that I picked up. The kid I got it from must have pulled every good part off it to use on other bikes, because I've just about replaced everything, but it's beginning to come along nicely.

    So here are the before pics. Forgot to take better ones:

    He was kidding. Don't butcher the frame, there is no need.

    Don't worry, I know he was kidding. I'm going to shave the fenders first but most likely will leave the frame alone.

    lol, as hairy as a lumberjack after a 3 month logging run.

    If anyone would like to trade fenders I plan on cutting mine down and they're in pretty good shape.
