Hey all! Another new guy here. I'm currently working on a 74 cb 750 cafe that I scored for free. I'm down to tires and having the carbs tuned. Anyone in Michigan?

Whoo-hoo! East sider (do you have a bitchin' Camaro or a Trans Am?). He's in Sterling Heights, read the bio.
Now for the important questions - How old are you & how many kids do you have to severely limit your bike time?
Until now, I think catboy (who rides a girl's bike) & I are all there are from around here.

T.A w/one T-top and an 8 track that only plays Billy Squire.

Really, i'm a transplant eastsider. Born in Livonia, lived in plymouth, redford, chelsea, Brooklyn(clark lake) and now sterling heights.
No kids, but I did get engaged three weeks ago. Ouch...

Eh. You're not really an east sider at all. Let's see pics. My first bike was a beater '76 cb750f. Catboy traded a bicycle for his cb750.

What's a stroke man?

Aaaah! Stroke man. Not at all ashamed that I didn't get it.

And that would be Squier, by the way.

Now everybody have you heard
If youre in the game, then the strokes the word
Dont take no rhythm, dont take no style
Got a thirst for killin, grab your vile...

You put your right hand out give a firm hand-shake
Talk to me about that one big break...
Spread your ear-pollution both far and wide...
Keep your contributions by your side and stroke me, stroke me
Could be a winner boy, you move quite well...
You got your number down...
Say youre a winner but man youre just a sinner now

You put your left foot out keep it all in place...
Work your way right into my case
First you try to bed me you make my backbone slide
But when you found you bled me-- skip on by... keep on---stroke me, stroke me
Give me the business all night long...
Youre so together boy...
Say youre a winner but man youre just a sinner now

Better listen now (said) it aint no joke
Let your conscience fail ya, just do the stroke
Dontcha take no chances keep your eye on top
Do your fancy dances you cant stop you just stroke me, stroke me

It's not that hard to figure out.
If you think his lyrics are gay, have you ever seen him perform (musically)? Looks stupid gay.

Note: I have never, ever been to a Billy Squier show. Saw him on TV once.

So, how long 'til that lump is road worthy? Is this your first bike? There's suposed to be a bike night in Royal Oak every Thurs, but I've never been. Assume it's an annoying fashion show. RO attracts a goofy crowd.

R/O is a fashion show. I don't even like riding around here. Brooklyn/clark lake and up towards Dexter have some of the best roads.

This is my third street bike. I've owned a 98 CBR600 and a 2000 R1 that was a streetfighter style with mx bars, etc...

What's left with the CB is:
Tune carbs
Tires
Remount the rear fender (i shortend it)
install new brake light
blead front brake.
new momentary switch for starter
oh yeah, and degrease the piss out of the rear wheel.

Thats it

AA, Dexter & points south & west are indeed the place to ride. I always liked Huron River Drive from AA to Dexter, but you have to pick your times since it gets awfully clogged up with bicyclists, runners and other irritating, slow-driving gawkers. There are some good roads north of Rochester too, but I've never had the chance to take a bike out that way. An estranged brother lives in RO, & I used to ride to his house. 696 sucks ass on a bike. Let me (& catboy) know when you're ready to take a blast. Hope you don't mind pubs, 'cause that's where we're usually heading.

Never had a crotch rocket, but you can see my bikes here:
