    I have had a Giuliari seat for the CB750F for about 10+ years. Bought it off eBay in Germany. Its a white one but I still remember paying good money for it. I don't think I will ever get around to using it as my taste in bikes has changed.

    As usual, this is only my OPINION. Bike owners can (and will) do as they like.

    That massive alloy swingarm is a step in the wrong direction.

    The tail sticking up is not at all to my taste. I don't even like the tail sticking up as much as it does on my ZRX1200R, and that's relatively modest compared to today's ridiculous tail-happy wannabikes.


    THIS is what a Honda 750 tail should look like...

    The height of the tail might be close in those pictures. It's the angle that's not so subtly different.

    As far as the rear swingarm, THIS is the real problem I have with it...

    The shocks don't seem to line up properly. If the frame or swingarm mounts can't be made to align properly, it was a wasted effort.

    The swingarm has no shock mounts in that pic so it's pretty hard to say it's a problem without seeing how he mounted them.

    Would be good to see the OP back with some updates.
