Hi all,

I am an average rider with 4 years experience "in the saddle" as it were but very little experience with modification. I built myself a Subaru WRX last summer but cars aren't bikes, so here I am. A good friend of mine just turned me onto the cafe idea and I think this is a great opportunity to learn. I can learn more about bike modification while learning to appreciate what it means to ride a cafe bike. I will be mostly lurking here. I have been around forums enough to know that the information I need is likely already here.

The project is a 1970 CB750. Right now it doesn't run but it used to. My father has neglected the bike a bit from lack of finances and I want to take this and breathe new life into it. I see it here already "Free bike is the most expensive" but this bike means too much to him for me to let it rot any longer.

I am here to learn from those with experience. If your opinions are harsh, lets here it. I take criticism well and hope that the information from this site can help me make the 750 something awesome again.

Okay I had no idea about the potential value of the bike, to me it was just the bike my dad never fixed. I'll look more into the bike before anything gets modified. Pictures are impossible right now, the bike is buried in a shed blocked in by snow.

I will do my best to not fuck it up, seriously.
If its a decent bike and you do fuck it up, then there is a reasonably good chance geeto and jag will track you down and extrude you through a sewer grate.
