Buy it now for $7000. which is about what I have in just building the motor. ?  Here is a YouTube video walk around of the bike: ?  This bike is the real deal. It is performance built from the ground up with the intention of impressing my vintage bike buddies. ripping though downtown. and blasting through the beautiful Texas Hill Country at speed all day long. ? Thinking about some AHRMA Vintage Superbike racing. ? Aren't we all?!! ? I have been restoring Vintage Race Motorcycles and building Cafe Racers for more than 25 years. In the early 1990's I was managing a vintage bike restoration shop; I have had more than 20 1970's SOHC CB750s. and have built many fast SOHC CB750 motors. This is my third 900cc CB750 big bore motor. I spared no expense. This bike was supposed to be my "keep forever" personal machine. But life happens and sometimes new dreams rearrange old ones. ?  Like all objects of passion. this bike has a rich history. lots of awesome mojo. and some amazing stories. This is a truly loved motorcycle. with every component sorted and correct. always only using the BEST stuff available. with an eye for performance. speed and comfort always being the #1 priority. ?  +900cc Big Bore motor. freshly rebuilt. About 2000 miles on rebuilt motor. ?  Some details about the motor: +Henry Abe 67mm Pistons & Rings. plus spare set possibly available with full purchase price +Cylinders bored out for BIG sleeves. and the air gaps between cylinders filled -- so no oil leaks +Cylinders can handle up to a 1000cc bore kit. and currently are on first bore size - 67mm. +Cylinders still have clear hash marks -- so the motor is still like new. +Heavy Duty Cylinder Studs +Heavy Duty Main Bearing Studs +New Crankshaft Bearings - Honda OEM +New Rod Big-End Bearings - Honda OEM +New Heavy Duty Primary Chains (crankshaft to clutch) +Cylinder Head mildly ported (port matching/cleaning) +Cylinder Head 'decked' 0. 20" for higher compression +Recent Valve job. +Titanium Valve Retainers +Heavy Duty Race Valve Springs +Hot Cam -- I am pretty sure it is a MegaCycle "125-75" BigBore Street/Strip race cam. Will barely idle at 750rpm. and has a lovely "lope" to it! +Adjustable Cam Chain Sprocket (dialed in) +Heavy Duty endless Cam Chain (Tsubaki) +Heavy Duty "APE" Solid Cam Chain Tensioner (rollerless) +Heavy Duty Barnett Clutch Springs +Balanced Crank (stock weight) +Shot Peended Con Rods +All New engine gaskets with new. high-grade material -- No oil leaks! +All New engine oil seals and O-rings. +DYNA "S" electrical Ignition + DYNA "green" 3. 0 Ohm coils +ACCEL 8. 0mm plug wires. +There probably are other things I am not thinking of right now. +After the big bore refresh I had a pesky oil leak at the cylinder base gasket. so earlier this month I removed the motor. replaced ALL the gaskets. and took advantage of this to re-paint the frame and other bits. I have put about 2000 miles on the bike since the refresh. +Motor has an outrageous "Spiked Bolt Kit" straight from the 1970's (I thought this was badass 20 odd years ago when I bought the bolt kit. and know what? It's still awesome!) +New (about 1 month old) sealed AGM battery. ?  +Exhaust. Performance 4-into-1-into-2 race pipes that are quiet enough at low RPM for coming through the neighborhood late at night. yet has a sonorous ROAR when you twist your wrist. +Fresh (about 1 month old) Kenda tires ("H" rated at 130mph) - still have most of the little nubbies on them. +Aluminum vintage Racing Rims. laced to OEM Honda hubs. +Front wheel built with CB550 hub +Wheel/ hub bearings +New sprockets and 530 O-Ring chain. (riveted Master Link + spare Master) +Brass swing arm bushings +Suspension: Front and rear shocks taken from a 1980's Honda CB track bike. BIG improvement over stock. +Brakes: Custom dual front disc brakes using OEM Honda parts. machined to uniquely fit this machine. One finger stopping power. Details available for future parts maintenance. +Rear brakes are stock. fresh. and dialed in. ?  +Stainless Steel Brake Lines +New Front Brake Master Cylinder +Fresh Fork seals +Fork brace +"All Balls" tapered steering stem bearings +Custom polished Triple Trees +Relocated Gauges w/ no idiot lights +Moog Oil Guage. +Oil Temperature indicator on main oil galley (blue temperature sensitive decal seen in one pic) +ClipOns Handlebars way down low +New foot peg rubbers (front and passenger) +Hand-built Steel fuel tank. Its Beautiful! With knee and clip-on cutouts that fit right. providing clearance to the bars. +$EXPENSIVE custom paint job with authentic 1960's Honda Race emblems. Who needs mirrors? You can shave/ pick bugs out of your teeth from your reflection off the paint. +Hand built super trick LEATHER Cafe Seat that is comfortable for 1 up or 2 up. -- I am a married man. and my wife likes to ride with me. I built this "cafe" seat with her in mind. and we have taken 500ish mile trips together on it. +Comfortable Ergonomics: I experimented with rearsets on this bike. but could not find anything that was comfortable. so I went back to the stock foot position. This position keeps my whole body weight centered over my feet. which I believe is most comfortable. The ClipOns are very low in the triple trees. providing a VERY AGGRESSIVE riding stance. and while it might take a bit getting used to. it is aerodynamic and very solid on the road. both rocketing in a straight line. or with a knee down in the twisties -- and yes. I wore out the Edges of my last set of tires. This thing handles exceptionally well for an antique bike. +All wiring recently gone through and harness re-wrapped; worn connectors were replaced with correct NEW vintage Japanese wiring connectors. ?  +Carbs: They are freshly rebuilt with new parts. a good ultrasonic cleaning. synchronized. and dialed in. I've done the jetting. replaced all the little vacuum and fuel lines with nice Tylon clear yellow hose. and they run great. ?  +Currently has 49/130 jetting in round top keiHin carbs. ?  +New Clutch Cable +Throttle is a bit stiff. so works a little like partial cruise control. +Nice Napoleon Bar End Mirrors. ?  +I like to use AMSOIL fully synthetic motorcycle oil in the bike. +Modified air box with internal/filtered Velocity Stacks and K&N filter. +Recently tested the top speed (once) to an indicated 130+mph. (The speedo indicates a little high. so it probably was more like 125ish. ) The bike was still pulling strong. was stable and felt solid. It inspires more confidence that prudence. I don't normally drive that fast (ever) but I wanted to open it up once after the engine refresh to see what might happen. +Clear Oregon Title in my name?  +Everything works correctly. ?  I sure have a lot of nice things to say about the bike. Are there any negatives? Maybe a few things: +This is almost a 40 year old motorcycle! No matter how well maintained. sometimes stuff will just break. ?  +This is a Big Bore engine in a bike that was not originally designed for it. That means some things are just different. For instance. it runs hotter than stock. It does not like sitting in traffic on 100 degree days. Who does? ? It probably would do well to add an oil cooler. ?  ~Also. because of the Big Bore. it is harder to kick start. It works just fine. but is a bit more manly. The electric starter works 100% just fine. but if you want to show off to your friends with the kicker. you'll want to practice a little first. +The Carbs: The old carbs I've always had on it broke a linkage (float tower) so I had to put a relatively newer set on the bike. They are freshly rebuilt with new parts. a good ultrasonic cleaning. synchronized. and dialed in. I've done the jetting. replaced all the little vacuum and fuel lines with nice Tylon clear yellow hose. and they run great. but I think the mains might need a bit larger jets: there sometimes is a bit of a stumble when quickly transitioning from mid range to wide open throttle. and I just have not had time to fiddle with it. Mind you it runs amazingly well. it just maybe can be a bit better. +There are no idiot lights. horn or blinkers. The wiring is all there. but if you want those. that will be up to you. There probably are other things. but basically. a motorcycle only has so many components. On this bike. ALL of them are sorted out. carefully considered. and correctly installed on this machine. Is the bike reliable? Last Saturday the temps finally cooled off and I drove about 250 miles out to Enchanted Rock. Fredicksburg. Cooper's BBQ. etc. Blasted along happily all afternoon through the up and down. beautiful winding Texas Hill Country back highways. This bike was built for days like this. I was sorely tempted to keep going and call the Mrs from New Mexico. Last Wednesday around midnight we had that flash flood here in Austin. Well. I got caught in it and ended up driving about 40 miles along I35 though the worst of it. The bike got a free bath. and did not miss a beat in the inclement weather. I am an all-season rider. and this bike has always been just fine riding in all sorts of weather. The Mrs and I bought this bike 15 odd years ago and proceeded to tour across the US on it. We went 2000 miles across the Southwestern Desert. up to Yellowstone. past the Grand Tetons (see pic). down past Winnemucca. up through the high Oregon Desert. etc. We were younger and full of spunk. and this amazing machine is even better today than it was back then. This bike has NEVER left me stranded. and never been seriously laid down. It has been ridden hard and lovingly pampered. And now its ready for a new home. It needs nothing. OR it is ready for a few of your own custom touches to make it even better. Come and see it. You will be hard pressed to find the couple small dings and scratches; odds are your friends (and the guys at the bike show) will think it looks perfect. But I'll tell you. it is built right. it looks HOT. and it ALWAYS gets lots of 'thumbs ups' and friendly waves on the road. and lots of good conversations at the vintage bike hangouts. If you are looking for a fast. fun. exciting vintage cafe racer that is sorted out. reliable and ready to go. look no further. This is the REAL DEAL. Please do not hesitate to contact me. ? I will happily send you my phone number to discuss any details. or me text you additional pics. or anything like that.
