    You'd have a hard time convincing a young kid that that cbx special was an old bike. It looks so modern I doubt if you would get teased about its vintage (even if they didn't know how fast it was). Jimmy

    I love building old motorcycles and working on them i have always rode old bikes. The kids at school always make fun of what i ride. They all ride new bikes would it be posible to build a cb750 that could take a r6?

    No....

    I have a friend who raced cb750s for 20 years. His garage looks like Russ Collins took a shit on every shelf (points for the people who know who russ collins is). At one point he had cb750 drag bike that ran 9's. this is probably about the fastest I have ever heard a single motored N/A cb750 go. It was bored to 1036ccs, ran race gas (actually nitro) had a dedicated chassis, was maximized fof straight line, and was no where even close to street legal. Also it took all of a two lane road to make a u-turn. Cycle world managed to take a brand new R6 and with a couple of ratcheing tie downs and some dropped dogbones managed to go 9's with a street legal and registered R6.

    I have heard about cycle ex's calims and that is for crank HP, somehow a lot more hp will get lost in the cb750's gearbox on it's way to the rear wheel, that is if the cb750 gearbox could handle the power (doubtful). The biggest thing to consider is that a stock cb750 overheats in traffic, a bored cb750 will have a complete meltdown in traffic if stuck long enough. An R6 will sit and idle all day long.

    Yeah, but you'd look cool doing it. And even cooler hosing it down with a fire extinguisher when it caught fire.

    He never said it had to be a brand new R6. And I doubt any high school kid could run as fast as a hired gun at Cycle world. If I ever get rich you'll see. If I have to turbo and nitrous inject the thing and strap rocket boosters to the seat I'll do it just to prove an old Cb750 can kick an R6's ass. Jimmy

    P.S. He never said it had to be street legal.
    P.P.S. RC Engineering, raced multi-engined Cb dragbikes. Where are my points?

    Everybody who knows me knows I eat, sleep, and crap cb750s (the 77-78 K bikes are the hardest to pass). Currently I have 6 bikes from early K's to dunstall Super Sports. I have had or ridden most of the hot setups out there. The point of a cb750 is nolonger to be the fastest baddest muthafucker on the planet, there is something else that the bike delivers that a new r6 or r1 cannot and that is a raw riding expirence.

    I have a 1986 ninja 1000R and at 100mph on the slab that bike is boring. It feels stable, sure, the wind isn't even that bad, it is just really boring. On the highway with the cb750 at 80mph the bike is shaking, the engine is scraming at 5grand, it feels at any second as if it could pitch you into a tank slapper. At 80mph you feel like you are going for the land speed record. At 100mph you feel like you are cheating death. It is those feelings, that absolute raw edge that embodies the spirit a cafe racer, the soul a new bike is born without.

    The difference between a cb750 and an r6 is the difference between a WWI spad, and an F16. Sure the F16 pilot can fly faster and harder, but only the Spad pilot is truely cheating death in his open cockpit rickety contraption.

    The rider will make a difference to a certain point. I have a friend with a new R1. He doesn't know how to push the bike around curves and the chicken stripes on his tires are a mile wide. He gets pissed wheneve he hears my centerstand scraping behind him because he knows I am right on his ass in a curve. I have even managed to pass him on a curve a few times on my 75 Q-ship. However once we get a straight all he has to do is wick it up and he is gone and it takes me miles to catch him again. Unrestricted his bike will do 190mph, mine will do 110mph. If I am doing 2 miles a minute (say I got a good tailwind and am pushing 120mph) he is doing 3 miles a minute. in 2 minutes of running flat out he is 2 miles ahead of me. That is the magic of a new sport bike: Any Tom, Dick, and Harry can throw a leg over and go this speed, all you have to do is pony up the dosh for a power commander and tuck behind the fairing.
