Nice looking bike. What's a dream machine?
They do still make that, but they punched it out to 1000Hey guys, the dream machine is a super smooth CB750 that Honda really should be making today.
I couldn't tell you on the parts interchange from 750 to 1100. I know whitehouse sells parts for the 750 but I don't think their "english" partner carries them as regular stock. You may have to send an email and ask them directly.We've got to get some new digs on the down under joke front happening here Trialsrider. Convicts, dangerous animals, Mad Max, raw onion-eating leaders - we got it covered.
As much as I like the CB1100, it doesn't quite have the legacy of the 750 marque for mine. Also they don't sell them here as Triumph and Kwaks dominate that market.
Geeto, nice Japan site recommendation but can't find anything for the 750. How swappable are some of these parts for the 1100? Some of those exhausts are very nice.
the DOHC had it's own legacy....it looks like this:but when Honda went DOHC any legacy was lost right there.
Yeah, but it wasn't groundbreaking like the SOHC was...the DOHC had it's own legacy....
That's the crazy-ass bike with the custom aluminum frame, bandit 1200 engine, crazy expensive Yosh Mikuni carbs, magnesium dymags.which is how I found this hot slice of awesome:

Geets, the 3rd photo is not a RC42, it's a CB1300 Super Four (SC54). Well, they used the paint scheme option on all super four models 400/1000/1300, I get your point. But I think this is the RC42 that you mean:the DOHC had it's own legacy....it looks like this:

even the Japanese thought so because they painted the RC42 in tribute colors:

now if that RC42 were mine here is what I would do:
buff the black paint. add gold pinstriping a la john player special sponsored formula 1 cars. add a 70's style 1/4 fairing like a tracy or even the square emgo vipers. paint the wheels gold. have the seat recovered in a diamond stich pattern with gold thread. then ride the wheels off it.
Also....black chrome exhaust. just saying.
