Hey guys, I'm new to metrics...I've been into American V-twins for the last 5 years or so. Choppers and Customs mostly, anyway I recently got turned on to Cafe Racers, really dig the style and at the same time looking for something as a daily rider to get back and forth from work and scoot around the city. So I've decided I'm going to build a Cafe Racer for my daily rider. I want to use the Honda CB750 as a base, thinking about an early to late 70's model. So my question is there any certain model or year that is better then another year to build off of? Maybe some years have better handling then others or better drivetrain/engine then others? Any help would be much appreciated.

Yup, G is the disk'er. I wish I had the patience to write an essay on 350s to rival Geets 750 class but alas, I don't have it in me.

This site documents a 350 resto pretty well and has links to some good aftermarket upgrades for your street 350 (check the rectifiers!).

The good thing about the 350 is its bomb-proof!(NOT Tanner-proof!!) Another is that, because of its popularity in vintage racing, there are TONS of aftermarket parts and upgrades for the engine, brakes, carbs...

Get yourself a factory manual, top it off with a parts fische, you'll be sorted.
