that guy phil at omars is cool... hell have alot of what ya need.....www.caferace.com has the brackets in black instead of cheesy chrome... and a wadded up piece of aluminum foil dunked in some water will scrub the rust off those forks when you get those sleeves off...

Hey Rob, I'm from Minnesota too and I'm building up a 74 CB750 cafe right now. Let me know if you need anything, I've researched a lot of this stuff for my bike too. In fact, ran into this same issue a couple months ago. Remember, rust removal is fun! At least I think it will become fun if I say that enough.

you will be very familiar with ebay alot of bike stuff is there like universal.headlight brakets you can get inexpensive for about 12 bucks and more expensive 39 bucks .they all work .you will have to slide your forks out of the tree or just take the top tree bracket off( just watch out for bearings at the top ).its easy and be sure the fork tops are even .when putting it back on.

You will also need to think about lighter smaller turn signals as well. They will bolt thru the hole that has the bolt thru it now,so it will be the light the braket then the bucket...and presto you will be happy with the trans formation.

also places like www.oldbikebarn.com have lots of parts but alway check ebay and add those stores to favorites you will use them plenty and ussually save some money .

If they are not in bad shape sell your ears on ebay plenty of people like stock parts for their home museum closet classics.

Im so far behind ,that I think Im in first.
