    My 1973 Honda CB750 Four Build

    Well I figured Ide start a Rebuild thread also of my progress.Short story on the bike. First off I have wanted to build one of these for years now but I usually have cars I'm working on preferably camaros in my garage & just no room. Well this year I have a empty garage So the search was on. I ended up searching the local www.craigslist.com here in town & ran across this bike. He was asking $500.00 OBO so I emailed him explaining what I wanted to do me & my oldest son & offered him $100.00 he said come pick it up its yours. The bike did run but I never started it. I just tore into the bike for a full rebuild. He also threw in the Headers the 4 into 1 that should sound awesome, I cant remember what kind he said they were.The bike has 17,000 miles onit, Its again a 73 which is the same year I was born so that's cool to me, The plan is a basic Cafe racer with a few of my own touches. Im going with all black & Champagne pearl gold on the rims & hubs with black spokes also a Champagne Checker flag down the center of the bike & the gauge bezels that should be just enough gold I don't want to over due it.The color is what you see on the Chrysler LHS`s & 300`s very suttle gold nothing drastic, Anyway keep checking back for new pics I do something to it just about everyday I'm hoping to have it down in the next few months & ready for Spring.I will also be making a full video montage of the rebuild as Carpy does I really like that idea. Anyway if I need some help Ill hit ya guys up for sure seeing how this is my first total rebuild.I usually only work on & rebuild Newer Sport bikes Ive built 4 of them.











































    Well I was going to just chop it in half & make it a bobber fender but everyone does that so I decided to go custom & make it stand out a little & flame the rear fender. Heres some pics. I also got my cafe club bars & my rebuild kits for the carbs today , Piece by peice. Also got all the spokes painted black but they came out like crap & I may have to re do them that should be fun!!.















    Stay tuned for more, I should be painted all my primed parts in like 2 weeks.

    Floorboards!?!! eeeghhhh.


    LOVE the mural on the tank.


    Hope you threw those handlebars far away where they'll never be found again.

    Nice paint on the hubs and rims. What did you use as a primer base?


    I'd recommend Buchanan's Spokes when it comes time to re-lace:

    Honda go sideways!

    I used a Epoxy 2 part primer works AWESOME on bare metal & seals it also. As for the spokes Im just re using the stock ones & painting them black, Im trying to keep the build under $500.00 so Im re using all parts I can.
