    I love the little detail work, the engine looks better than new, the clear engine sidecover with tiny screws, the rearset set up, verynice.
    The colours of bikes are always a personal thing.

    I get a kick out of the plate holder too... And yes, color choices are never to suit all. I bet the builder digs it.

    That does look sweet, but I think I would have to be a foot shorter to even feel remotely comfortable sitting on it, unless I was sitting on the tail section. Not much room left for handling with those shocks. Amazing build none the less.

    My bike (also a CB750) has a very similar setup, I'm 6'7 and I'm fine on the bike. Though my seat does have at least a little bit of a cushion on the seat....


    Nice bike though!

    Could be wrong but is the battery in the seat hump? A popular idea for cafe's in the uk back in the day (as they say!) Also part of the idea for a seat hump was to improve aerodynamics - a little hump doesn't do the business, even if it looks better...:wink: as for colours, bare or black, no question!

    You are right, the battery goes under the seat hump. I kind of agree it looks a little big. I am considering having the seat upholstered with black leather and maybe some studs going across the hump. Something like this 450 seat. Any suggestions? [​IMG][​IMG]

    Also, I do am color blind. No kidding. I always end up with lots of green stuff. Wife has sent me back to return green jackets, pants, etc. I've had green cars and even once I had a green house. Kind of a religious thing, attracted to what I can't see...

    Interesting, I know other people that are color blind that are strangely facinated with that particularly shade of green.
