It was quite a long ago when I posted photos of “assembled” Seven Fifty cafe-racer. I moved my Honda Cb750 project far forward from that time. Battery box, electrical components housing, tail light with license plate holder, hugger and chain guard, all of them changed motorcycle appearance. So last weekend I decided that it was a good time for shooting “walkaround” photos of motorcycle. I covered hugger in black tape to imitate painting.
Then I installed all updates (though it was a bit hard to mount drive chain with hollow crankcase instead of engine) and rolled bike out of garage.
I left some of less significant updates behind the scenes, but you may notice them on photos below. Original GSX1300 Inazuma shock springs predictably turned out to be too stiff and I replaced them by softer ones in pair with Zephyr 750 preload adjusters (this setup gave me right sag of rear suspension). Attentive project observer may also notice that I changed mirrors for larger ones, though made in the same design.
But sure, let’s finish with the words and start with photos:
Hello, what type rubber fork guard did you use? Do you have original forks?
I used Kijima fork gaiters. Yes, front fork is original.
