That points cover was for the 350/400/500/550 fours. The ones made for the CB750 had angled fins.
Yeah, if the front one had more nearly followed the engine finning (like the clutch cover), I would have dinged it on the ground harder; so maybe it was done by design.
But all of those fins came from the scrap bin at a mate's wrecking shop. People used to crash and write off café racers a lot back in those days.
Not at all a criticism, just an observation. I see that it had a beveled edge. I like the tank shape - reminds me of the Rickmans.
All in the one shop, just down the road. All for sale...
^ Those Beezers sure are pretty.
Where is 'down the road'?
Nice aluminum work
Looks like a Lockdown build - pipe wrap cleaned out by panic buyers. Nice bike, but nearly all the cliche's get a tick.
I like this build, but have to wonder how small the rider must be if a pillion can sit behind him/her.
Good gosh!! Where in Australia is this?!!
Between Vienna and Salzburg.
Phat. Wow this thread has been for a while.
Can I get this from @procycle?
The finned CB engine covers mentioned above were on this CB350F frankenbike I’ve been resurrecting this year. One cover had damage and I actually found a nos set on the bay.
As far as I can tell the 350/400/500/550 take one set and a 750 takes another.
Weirdly... I just dragged home a derelict ‘72 750 that has the same covers. The 750 also has these bizarro replacement tappet covers that look like little beer kegs. Even weirder the 350F I’ve been coaxing to life came with a new set of these still in the packaging.
Been beautiful weather recently, though only travelling locally due to UK lockdown conditions. A good excuse to get my RC 162 replica out for a bit of exercise
Is the owner/builder of this CR replica a member here? So well done bravo.
^ Wow, what an impressive lineup of bikes! You all did it right!
