    New Build

    I'll get some pics up as I get them.

    I've got my old CB750F frame, a 2005 GSX-R600 Engine, and GSX1100 Front end and rear end. I'm going to build a tank and seat for her, and wrap her in a full race fairing so you can't see the engine. The goal is a bike with a classic look, with a modern powerplant.

    Also about to get started on my 1965 BSA A65. Hopefully will have both of them ready to roll down to Barber in October for the Vintage Festival.

    I'd say the R600 motor will put out a little over twice the hp of a cb750 motor - it will be interesting to see how you get the cb frame to handle the R600 power. Adding modern front forks and rear end will for sure put some real twisting forces on the frame... This will be interesting - good luck.
