Been lurking around reading through some threads. Not going to lie....I read through the entire "water buffalo" build thread.
Little bit of info on me... I don't own a CB750...YET, but I'm in the market for one for sure. Hard to come by around this area, but I check the local ad's daily. I currently own a 2004 V-Star 1100...heavily modified. Bit bored with just having a cruiser though, and miss hitting corners like a bat out of hell. Rather than just going out and picking up a R1 or whatever though, I want to building something unique. So I decided on a cafe-style bike.
Basically I'm here for knowledge. Before I take on a project I want to at least have an idea as to what awaits me. Hopefully that's a sufficient excuse for joining a bike forum when I don't even own the bike.
Word to the wise, never corner hard with no fork brace! We don't have 43mm forks like the r6 or something does. We got these wee little 35mm forks that like to torsion twist just enough to freak a person out!
If a cafe is the idea, go for a 72-78 model. Not so rare as the 69-71 bikes.
You can lurk all you want. Make sure you read through the parts source lists and check things out. Read the write ups too.
The ride IS the adventure. The destination is just to get gas!
