anyone got a towel?:

Looked like a Ferrari, hell they sound like one at speed! I've wanted one since they came out myself, one day.

BEAUTIFUL BIKE BTW!!

I know it's a bad idea, but in a sick, twisted way, a great one. I've wanted, for a looong time, to build 2 identical and put them in a 23T bucket set side by side, with a 6 speed tranny and a quick change rear. Otherwise keep it old school.

The sound of that would be pure sex!!:

I'm glad I found this thread, It's inspirational, My 79 CB 750 F/S has been just sitting outside for a couple years and I just started looking for parts for it. When I start on it I'll have to do a build thread. I think it's going the Steve McQueen direction, as I like dirt roads. I CAN'T FRIGGIN' WAIT!!!

Back then it was like looking at a Ferrari, it just looked fast. Fast forward to 2003 a friend asks if I could look at a friend of his bike that had broken the chain and smashed the engine case. That was this bike. 6 years later he finally sells me the bike.

It only had 9000 miles on it.

First time in 10 years it had seen daylight, loading it up to bring it home.



It took me 3 years to get it back in working order and I could not be any happier
