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.

Wow Geeto, you just answered so many of my questions.

I'm fixin to buy a cb750 in the next month or so and I've been hunting quite a bit. I've noticed that the prices can varry significantly. I know there's probably no good answer to the question, but what is a reasonable price I should be looking for in my first cb750? What's considered a good deal?
Hey Geeto,

By chance can you give me a little more info on the changes between 66 and 67? What makes it so much heavier? Is it just a bigger block? Or, is it possible to lighten these guys up?
