Cb750 chopper {SOLD}

I hereby sell my Honda CB 750 70s style hardtail chopper, licensed as a reasambled bike, which is very hard to come by in the Netherlands, because of the legalities.

This gorgeous Honda 70s style chopper has a '89 reasambled licence, registered as : hardtail , no year determined. 

An old valuation is available, containing all the details regarding the construction . The engine was built by a professional metal worker , based on a Challenger hardtail frame and has many custom stainless steel components, including custom cylinder oil tank , battery box , chain guard , wide triple trees , forward controls and custom stainless steel 4 - into -2 exhaust with a very nice sound . It does not rust and has a brilliant shine!

The chopper has a wide 16 " chrome Harley rear rim , spokes in a CB750 rear hub with the brake plate some cool engravings , which was widespread in the seventies . Here is a new oldschool Shinko rear tire with classic profile and new brake shoes. Front wheel is a 56 -spoke 19 " chrome wheel with disc brake and a new Dunlop tire with a very nice minimal radial profile .

On the bike is a new flat fender, which nicely curves over the rear tire back and it is held by an original 70s trident sissy bar, which is very hard to find . A 70s Drag Specialties King & Queen seat fits nicely on the rear fender. The tank is newly imported from USA and is a frisco narrow Wassell style with a new fuel cap and fuel tap. The tank is obviously spotless inside. The fork is an 8 "over stock , with wide custom triple trees, a Bates style headlight and new risers are holding the ape-hanger with the original Harley controls firmly. The wires are neatly integrated into the handlebars and the chrome is naturally very beautiful.

The engine runs perfectly, according to the survey report has undergone a complete overhaul, has no unwanted sounds, and the spark is given by two beautiful aftermarket coils. The engine of course is the original engine, as stated in the licence, hence the block numbers match with the licence. The block is kick -only: a starter motor is in it, but it is not connected .

The engine has been in the living room of the previous owner for the last 10 years, rarely ridden. Extras include a solid fork brace , mini speedometer with matching cable, a rearview mirror and a tool bag .

As described, the condition of the engine is very nice, motor is in very good condition, professionally built in classic 70s style with many new and special parts. With this low stance chopper, sharp turns are no problem. This is the opportunity to become the owner of an awesome, solid and complete 70's style chopper with the right papers and a known history.

Tokyo Garage #5: Kota & Gonz

Kota and Gonz

Now these guys took me and my bird on the Tokyo-Garage-Tour. In the back of Kota's Mercury they showed us all these places, their bikes and told us their stories. I don't think, ever in my life, I felt so welcome and met such friendly guys as these two. Thanks both of you for this incredible experience! I hope to meet you guys again soon, and be able to do the same for you. We miss you guys, and you are always welcome!
