The bike (1982 CB750K) was given to me by a family friend. It was generous, but I'm a sport-bike enthusiast. I already have a bike that I ride everyday (zx12r).
I figured I'd take this bike just to mess around on. However, I recently saw pictures of the cafe style CB750's & I thought it would be a good project to get more familiar with the mechanics of working on a bike.

I'm being told by a builder in my area that it would cost "thousands" of dollars to make this bike into a cafe (by myself). Why? Because it isn't a 70's model. "It wasn't made to be easily interchangeable to a cafe racer."

So, my question is - can I get this bike anywhere near decent/sporty/cafe looking (cb750cafe.com style) without spending "thousands"?

I'm not into old cruisers, or any cruiser for that matter. So if this isn't a project that can be done on a budget, then I'll end up parking this bike.
