Hi All,
I am new here. I am very new to anything larger than a minibike. That being said, I picked up a early 70's CB750 with the whole king/queen setup. It's so ugly it's hard to look at it with a straight face.
That being said, I have a rough idea where I want to go with this project and I would love it if you guys can point out problems that I may face just in the initial build. Here is my plan for broad strokes:
Tear it down to the frame
Powder coat the frame
Fit it with a Honda Hawk 650 swing arm
(I would like to fit a Suzuki GSXR triple tree and complete fork assembly if it's possible)
I also need to find someone to go through the engine so the build is starting as fresh as possible.
Does this sound like a bad idea or not??
