    Fill in the location in your profile.

    Most cb750 cafe racers use a stock frame. The stock frame is pretty good to start and was good enough for Dick Mann to win Daytona on it in 1969.

    There are plenty of aftermarket companies that made frames for the cb750 back in the day (rickman, dunstall, bimota, seely, etc) those frames are hard to find these days and usually when you find them are expensive. Dresda and a few other frame manufacturers today can make you a frame but it too will be very expensive. Your best bet is to use the stock frame since so much in the way of bodywork is made to fit the stock frame.

    Once again I am going to stress filling in your location in your profile is kind of important. If someone is local to you it is much easier to do things In real life than read messageboards. It is really for your own benefit.

    As for the frame there are plenty of manufacturers out ther (airtech being one of them) that can sell you a replica CR750 roadrace tank in fiberglass (and aluminum). 90% of them need no frame modifications to fit, but will require aftermarket seats as the CR tank is very long. There are also cafe racer fiberglass seats (look on ebay) that will work with your stock hinges, tank, and rear fender.

    If this were a race bike there are a few frame mods you could make to improve handeling, but for a street bike they won't be necessary.

    anyway here is the SOHC resource list - this should get you started on suppliers:

    I did, and it is not the first time I have cut and pasted it - I also said where I stole it from in my post (so it is not like I am taking credit for it).

    Ah. Sorry if I, in anyway, sounded hostile. I was just pointing it out to others who seemed to have missed it. I know I did.
