Good morning All,

Does anyone know what for what years a CB750 tank will fit a '78 CB550? There are loads on ebay and I've seen a couple of nice bikes that claim to use one. What measurements do I need to see if one would fit?

Nice looking tank and seat.

Thanks for the links. I'm supposed to get some intake manifold parts nuts and o rings today - if the dealer got them in...lol. With luck she'll be running this evening. I'll keep you posted.

I saw a CB550 with a CB750 tank that I liked the look of and was just wondering what years would fit. Actually, it seems as though quite a few 750 parts will fit. I discovered that I need to rebuild the front master cylinder and in looking around found that the 550 shares the front brake assembly with several CB models. But you're right, a CB750 tank is definitely not manx inspired.

Here's a 400/four that I really like the look of by Moto Tumbi. Unfortunately it's in fiberglass.

That Laverda triple tank looks pretty good. What price for would be a good deal for it? I don't have a clue as to how nuch something like that is worth.

Thanks for the lead.

The gray Dunstall Cb400/four, has a Dunstall tank, bikini fairing and a Manx style seat. I think it's second from the bottom of the page.

What model Honda is War Horse's tank from? It looks great. Also, how did you get the engine so clean? Bead blasting or...?

I've looked at Omar's flyscreen - very cool. I'll probably get one eventually: right now I'm concentrating on getting it going (slow dealer. 'nuff said). I'll check out the Dresda seat, it sounds about right.

The green #73 Honda is a cool looking bike, especially the tank emblem.

Thanks for the info,

Stattz
