I am new to this forum and to older bikes. I have a cbr f4 but its almost to fast for the crappy roads i live near so i plan on tracking it. For a more cruiser style bike I am really interested in buying a 70s cb 550 or 750, I like the idea of the 750 because i would eventually like to do a big bore kit up to 836cc. There is a 550 for sale down the street and I was wondering if a 750 engine would fit into a 550 frame. It doesnt matter if the mounts line up I just want to know if it will fit.

My idea with the cb is that it will be riden slower, and not as agressivly, the cbr is obviosly better at braking and at cornering but cornering is pointless when theres gravel at most bends. I want to be able to push the cbr to its limits with out having to drag it out of a field and pull gravel from my arm.

as for the 650 swap i have a 81 cb 650 in my garage, it runs, but not that great. And it only has four gears, could i match up the 550 tranny with the 650 engine, or could i swap tranny internals.
