    80 CB750f Cafe Racer Project

    Hey all! This is my first post, but have been a long time lurker. I picked up this bike the first of this month, and have been working on it non-stop. This is going to be my daily rider, so I'm anxious to get it on the rode.

    This is what It looked like when I picked it up.


    This is it so far.



    I still have a lot of work ahead of me. My next step is re-locating the battery under the seat cowl...Oh and if anyone knows of a small speedo that is fairly inexpensive let me know. I'm have difficulty finding one.

    Looks like a great start man!
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

    Looks good, if you just want a smaller cheep speedo, the cb350,cb450 clock is cheep enough and will fit right up. I think they read up to 120mph. The tach will work also, they arn't nearly as klunky as the '81 cluster-f--- thing. Those twin-cam 750's are fast! I don't know what it would do to the little speedo if you went past 120?.

    Well I'm getting closer. I'm waiting for parts to come in, so I decided to put a little paint on it. This is just temporary till I strip everything down and paint everything.




    I should be getting my carb jets in in a day or two. It really is not running well without re-jetting it. Is it pretty typical to be all bogged up before jetting?

    It's a 58 Triumph TR10 Station Wagon. They only made the car for 2 years, before Hillman bought Triumph. My dad and I have done some research on it, and there are about 15 left and 3 are running. originally we were going to restore it, but it's too hard to find parts and we have a bit of a lead foot.

    We've been working on it for quite some time now. Custom built chassis with mostly mustang 2 bits. Including the 302 V8. With the motor in, the whole car weighs 1800 lbs. It's up and running now, just cosmetics left. I kind of like it as is. I'll throw up some photos of it if you'd like.

    My grandfather bought the car new, so it will be staying in the family.

    I remember the Hilman Husky, probably the same car, looks just like yours. My '81 750 had the pods and ran much better after re-jetting. Looking good!
