1977 Honda CB750K "Danica"
It isn't often I pick up a running bike that looks this clean. The seat was flawless and the bike is very original. Check out those Lester mag wheels!
Time Lapse CB750 Teardown
Detabbed and the tail section chopped. I'll weld in a tail hoop and give it a subtle kick. By the time this project is finished I'll end up chopping the buddy peg/exhaust bracket on the other side too.
Ready for powder coat. Once again, this bike amazed me at how clean it was. Usually these cast parts are stained and discolored. These didn't take much elbow grease to get looking this clean.
Laced in under 12 minutes. I love how the new stainless spokes and nipples look against the freshly black powder coated wheels and hubs. This isn't the first bike I've put together with this setup and surely won't be the last.
This frame was coated days ago and still looks wet. I'm super pleased with this new product.
This model CB750 only has a single disc on the front. We shaved the unused mounts and polished the fork lowers. The before and after is rewarding.
More polishing on the engine casings. Polished aluminum is so pretty. It screams vintage while looking brand new.
These PD carbs were relatively clean like the rest of the bike. However, a little love with the soda blaster cleaned them up to looking like new. I love carbs without diaphragms.
Instagram spoke and we went with the amber turn lenses up front. The Lossa Engineering 12" Shorty reverse cone muffler screams. It sounds great!
We remade this seat upon finding this product. If you're looking to try your hand at making a seat... You have to use this product!
It is what makes the quilted section stand up when stitched.
