Hi, I am from the UK and have built a few bikes in the past but I finished my first Cafe Racer last year and have been enjoying riding it ever since. Performance and handling were key issues rather than just looks and a lot of time and effort was taken to make sure that the engine, suspension and brakes were as good as possible whilst keeping the feel of a classic bike. Now building a brat style CB400T for the wife.

i like the stock 750f so much that when someone "changes" it they never come out improved/better. like your thou. rearsets w/ SB bars i like. no cheap clubmans. quality pods. brakes ,suspension (no cheap china shocks, Hagon? ), steering dampner. love the bodywork, exhaust and the red frame. questions thou. what engine work and is that a made in India fuel tank? whats the quality like?. any person that wants to redoo a F should look at your first. i know imitation is the beast form of flattery . some people may not want to copy it and go there own way. but my eyes get sore looking at the crap they come out with

Hi, sorry for the delay in re-posting. The Rims are Morad alloy around modified CB750F1 hubs and the discs (rotors) and calipers are from a 2001 CB900. The tank and seat unit are hand made one offs from TAB2 in the UK and the quality is fantastic, not at all like the Indian stuff. As an update, I could never really get the old CV carbs running right (even after re-jetting 2 sizes and shimming the needles) with the K & N air filers so I have now fitting a set of Mikuni flat slides and it now runs smooth and pulls like a train.

The exhaust system is a 4 into 4 stainless steel by Benjis in NJ. Sounds great.

The forks are fitted with progressive springs and the rear shocks are Hagon with pre-load and damping adjustment.

Hello! Nice bike! I really like your tach and speedo. Where did you find those?

The tach and speedo are Smiths electronic. They are based here in the UK and normally make instruments for Triumphs etc. The warning lights are high intensity LED's mounted in the handlebar clamp.
