My new edition!!!!

Guess who has someone new to cuddle up with at night in the garage!?!?!?
1971 Honda CB750 K
WOO HOO!!!!!!!
My uncle gave it to me, I just had to pay for shipping.
Flag had to go, these were before it came home







HOME IN WASHINGTON!!!!


First thing I did was take the box off.
In the future, I'll be putting on straight bars and a flat seat.
Other than that, I'm not planning to to very much, but you know how that goes!

Doesn't it feel like pushing a wheel barrel with those bars?

I think with some lower bars and a better looking seat that bike would turn heads. No need to go crazy with clubman bars or anything. Just something lower than what it is now.




I'm always right.

Yeah, I'm thinking of the straight bars.
I don't know yet, definitely no more than 2 inch rise.
These bars are screaming old man bike...
Even though I may be close, I don't want to push getting there.

Nice ride ! I had a 1975 CB500 Twin and also a 1978 CB550four, great little cruisers.
Loose the bars I had 2" risers. Perfect.

I'll play around a bit wtih ideas, but I am thinking I want to possibly go back to stock colors.
I want to badge the tank! I love the old Honda wings, but if I go with more of a cafe' look, the new ones might look good too.
