This beautiful CB750 was in my mailbox this morning.

Heavy duty primary and cam chains
Heavy duty studs

Boxed swing arm
Works rear shocks and Race tech spring and emulators in the front
Brembo rear master cylinder and braided brake lines from slingshot cycles

  1. That is nice, very professional finish, especially the red trim.

  2. Very nicely done!

  3. what kind of rims did you used and hubs, i want to switch my aluminum wheel for whells with spokes

  4. Hi David

    First of all, this is not my bike. But for my CB750 I used Borrani 18" rims, and standart CB750 hubs.

    I can recomment Motocicli Veloci as a good place to buy rims --->

    With regards,


  5. 76F rear and gl1000 front end im guessing

  6. That could be true yes.

    With regards
