1981 Honda CB 750
This bike is a one-of-a-kind build that has been granted much attention and has been given numerous awards since its debut in early 2018.
It started life as a 1981 CB750K and has been transformed into a modern machine. Featuring modern suspension, lighting, custom fabrication work, & more. The bike recently won one of 4 awards at the grand opening of the New England Motorcycle Museum with regards to its engineering & design, and won another award for Best Engineering at another show in September. The bike stands out in a crowd, shows well, and most importantly drives very well. It’s a reliable machine with remarkable handling at any speed.
I finished the build for this bike in early 2018 and have received nothing but good feedback since its debut. I’ve impressed a lot of people, including myself. I’ve taken it on many long rides (4hr+) with no pains or complaints at the end of the day and am impressed with how comfortable it is to ride.
-The factory frame has been modified to allow for the conversion to a single mono-shock rear suspension, relocated battery box, & custom exhaust.
-The exhaust system features a hand-built 4-into-2 design using high-quality stainless steel. It looks great, sounds great, and doesn’t get hot at the mufflers.
-The tail cowling is hand-made out of aluminum and offers recessed LED lighting above the exhaust with integrated running light, brake light, and signals. It is fastened with four screws which can easily be removed for access to battery compartment, and other parts. There is a single plug connecting the tail cowling harness to the rest of the bike for easy removal.
-The seat pan is also made of aluminum and is fastened with high-strenght velcro, as well as two hidden straps that button onto the frame. It can be removed very quickly without any tools.
-The factory tank has been modified to accommodate for hidden electronics beneath the tank, cosmetic appearance, and for an aircraft style, flush-mounted fuel cap.
-The engine has been completely disassembled and reassembled, replacing cams, valves, and the head in the process.
-Four CNC’d polished aluminum velocity stacks feed air into the carbs and have brass screens within.
-The bike draws power from a small lithium-ion 12-Volt battery mounted under the seat.
-The front and rear suspension have been fitted to the bike from a newer GSXR, making the bike handle extremely well. I have 2018 street bike and still think that this bike is more fun to corner with.
-The headlight features a 5-bulb haymaker light with a high/low/off toggle, and is fixed to two custom CNC’d mounts by Motogadget M-Blaze pin signal lights. All lights on the bike are very bright.
-The handlebars feature adjustable clutch & brake levers as well as Motogadget M-switches to control the starter, signals, and horn on the bike. All wiring is fed through the handlebars.
-The wiring harness for the bike is almost completely hidden and features numerous quick-disconnects for serviceable areas.
-The frame, wheels, handlebars, and most other black surfaces on the bike have been stripped, primed, and painted gloss-black with high-quality materials and single stage paint used on show cars.
-The white paint on the bike has a beautiful pearl to it and is one of my favorite features of the motorcycle. This motorcycle shows very well in daylight, but in my opinion looks even better at night.
The motorcycle is currently registered in the state of CT, and as such comes with CT registration and bill of sale.
