    1972 CB750 HONDA Custom Cafe

    Before and after.

    Just finished for the most part my 72 750 four CB. Runs like a champ. Needs a bit more TLC but i did all the work on my own over 6 months. Turned out good, and yes you may not like it but sharing for feedback, thoughts and of course compliments if you feel like it, ha! Enjoy, thanks!Name:  IMG_1636.PNG

    A front fender would be nice too.

    Also the 16" rear wheel is meant to be some kind of joke right?

    You painted a stock bike, cool story.

    Was a better bike when stock, but that is just based on the subjective nature of looks.

    -Junk rear shocks
    -16in rear wheel
    -no front fender
    -did you not take the wheels apart to paint or coat them?
    -what is the point of the two carb set up?
    -any actual improvements to the bike?

    I can tell you spent some money on parts. The orange paint is fine but I kind of puke on engine parts that are painted orange (same with the foot controls and rear swing arm). Stock honda front forks need bracing - that what the stock fender does. I'd consider adding the front fender back on. I like the custom fork trees but I would have spend the money on something else - but that's me.. I like the seat. What kind of exhaust did you purchase? I would have gone with a different carb setup - again that's me...

    I like the seat too - I did a similar thing with my old GS750ef when I painted it burnt orange (re-covered the seat and used orange piping, that is).
