Recently acquired my '81 CB750. Most of the work was done by PO but I plan to change some of it to make it mine!
So far has mini clocks, Honda Shadow tank and Harley tail. Seat was hand made with alloy plate but will be re-doing and also making a single seat so I can 'clip on' either if I have my pillion.
Next jobs, sort out seat as no proper mounts or fixing points (any tips much appreciated), polish rims and repaint star black on wheels, find a better air filter as DOHC doesn't like pods, add mini bullet indicators (turn signals), new mirrors, change rear light and a few other bits.

I like vintage bikes because they take me away from the clutter of technology that I work with everyday and back to a simpler time of mechanical elegance and simplicity.. "ninadm"

I think the side plates are fine. It's just a huge spot of shiny on a dark bike.
I saw a CBR at a friends shop and loved those emblems. The burnished red looks modern and classic at the same time. The current year model CBR's use them, not sure what other years do as well. Probably eBay will have them.
