Badass GW with a killah paint job. I want one.
Thanks for the ID on those! I'm not sure how similar the offset is to the original fork, but they seem to handle well enough at speed.
Out and about on a Sunday Morning.
I just got the tank and battery covers back from the paint shop.
It was a little wet today, but still a good day for a ride. Why there is a concrete cornfield I do not know...
It's a memorial to all of the corn stalks that lost their their lives in the ill fated Kellogg's rebellion during the fall of 1953.
Wow! I'm not usually an old Harley fan but this could change my point of view. A real stunner!
I realized today I never posted pics of my new project bike. 1976 honda CB750 K6 with 42K miles and iffy compression.
After a quick cleanup and adding the headlight and turnsignals I had bought in advance:
Just got my new seat today!
Hope to have it up and running by spring.
Looks like a great start. A top end refresh and some polishing you will be rolling in style in no time.
Oh thank God! scrolling through your post one pic at a time was like a joke with the punch line first, the seat was absolutely the answer to the "what thing doesn't belong?" question. So, so, so much better with the new seat.
You may find that a little running will bring that compression in where it belongs. With those miles though you had better pull the oil pan and look for bits of the cam chain tensioner. A lot of these old SOHC's are starting to have issues with the old rubber on those coming apart.
BTW, I've had my K6 since 1978. My first big bike :)
Quoted for truth. Here's my '68 CB350's cam tensioner after about 25,000 miles. I am doing a top end rebuild now.
Might as well post these here. I was just in Michigan delivering a bed I had built. I stopped by to see a friend of my dad who is a motorcycle collector (among other things). Here is some stuff in his basement. I did not get a chance to get pics of what he has in his storage building, but I've been in there before and there was a line of bikes, each under cover from the front to the back, side by sidemore BSAs, a couple World War Two Harleys, Honda Trail 70s, more Harleys of different years and models.
And the cream of the crop:
Now I'm in love !!!
That is a beautiful motorcycle in every way. Although I've gotten turned off to the Harley lifestyle thing, this bike rises above it all. Fantastic.
Thanks for all the comments guys. I love this bike as well and I am happy to say this bike runs as good as it looks.
I can assure you I am completely turned off by the HD lifestyle scene. But I spend as much time around the vintage motorcycle scene as I can, Euro, Jap. British you name it. I've met some great people that share my passion and enjoy life the way I do. Very few around the HD "scene" nowadays even understand this motorcycle which is sad and stunning to me.
