Sentoh Honda CB836CR

It seem that we are going to see many exhaust tweaked CB750s in the future?! First we saw the Café Fabrication’s Fire red beast. And now there is a new bad boy on the road, made by Jim Guiffra from AFT Customs in Jackson California.

The bike named Sentoh Honda CB836CR is based on a 1976 CB750, and has been fitted with a Wiseco 836 piston and gascet kit. Dynatek ignition system boostes the electrics, and one single Mikuni HSR 42 with custom intake feeds the motor??? And it looks like there has been a race gear box build into the engine. 

It is clear by the strange tank design that it is not an original CB750 frame. The frame was build by TPJ Customs, and the front end is fitted with a Race Tech modified Yamaha R1 upside down fork.

A strange bike with nice details, that I think you all should have the chance to have a look at.


Thanks to Jeff Stephens for info on the bike.


  1. That's beautiful. Detailing is really harmonious.

  2. Hi David :D

    I don't know what I think about it really???

    I thing there is something about it, but I really don't like the tank design.

    But all about the engine and exhaust is super cool, and I like the off road wheels and kickstart they have build into the bike.

    A new and original design I have to say, and something I would like you all to see. Maybe it will grow on me??

    Thank you for posting sir :)

    With regards,


  3. Tank design - Honda's first production m/cycle was in '48 called the model "D". It had a tank that was similar that came up to a point in what could be called a perimeter style frame. (This design allows 3 gal with low center of gravity). That was what inspired this blend of old styling with modern components. The SOHC 750 was the birth of the modern sport bike. The name Sentoh means the beginning in Japanese. Sentoh represents Honda's beginning & the beginning of the modern sport bike. Like the tank better now? :)
