My CB 750 Custom Chopper Project 2
CB 750 Custom
By popular demand...
(ha, ha) in regards to my CB 750 Project, here I am back with my build: Rear wheel is a 15" rim, original drum brake with a 170 tire, already got a new 16" x 5.5 wheel since I have cleared the way for a 180 tire, which is as far as I want to go, the from wheel is a 21" rim with a mini-drum brake no real stopping power here, yet I will install a rear caliper for a rear disc brake, the "Z" bar you see on the previous picture is the rear brake rod that goes to the rear drum brake, thats going to go with the new brake setup.
Right now the bike is all down in pieces, I just got a old frame with paper work (Just discover mine was untitled!) so I will have to change the steering neck so I can get this baby legally to the streets, 1st problem is to get my jig as accurate as possible, no easy task since Im not a professional builder, yet Im trying to plan and to take one step at the time since all my crew is just me and my wife which thank to God is just as passionate with bikes as I am!
This photo shows an ultima inverted front end, 2 inch over, frame has a 45 rake which already showed to be a bit dangerous for our city (traffic is hellish almost 24/7) so I know Im getting some boos here but I will do a 40 degree rake with the new neck, so I can have a better handing on this beast.
The rear pipes came with the bike, unfortunately I will have to change them since they get hot as hell and I ride with my wife all the time, I got a 4 x 4 mac NOS, I plan to weld straight ends to them so I will do long pipes to the rear wheel end length for an aggressive look.
Im also working on a oil tank, will do 1/2" lines so the motor get the oil it deserves, also need to work on new head gaskets so you know these babies are reliable enough but they need some attention from time to time...
I will upload new photos as work progress... peace to all. It is refreshing to know Im not alone! (At least in the< world... everybody here is bent towards instant gratification meaning big bucks to get a decent ride).
