My '78 CB750K Cafe Racer project

Part I

Got this bike a while ago...it has been a work in progress, but finally got it done.

Got the new fairing on, while the tins are out for paint.


Bobbed fender, new signals, and relocated tail light/license plate.


Kerker pipe and muffler get new paint.


Bars flipped and turned upside down, cafe seat installed.


Velocity stack installed.


In need of a severe detail.

Nice. I always liked that engine. Easy to work on, simple to adjust the valves.
