My personal cafe racer motorcycle is now up for grabs. This is a great vintage CB750 from1974 and I've given it a new revamped life.
I built this bike from the ground up with many cool, custom details on this machine that you may not even notice. I created this Japanese “Rice Boiler” as many years ago back in the UK, my old man used to sniff at my bikes and just say, “bloody rice boilers!”. He was more of a British bike aficionado and turned his nose up at all the Japanese bikes — so I thought I would build something to piss him right off.

This is a fun bike; it’s a big machine and not for the short legged clientele, as this is tip toey for me and I am 5'10".

I’ve powder coated the frame and then we shoe horned the motor back in after I had stripped it down and freshened the top end up. She is a great motor with all the cool polishing and stainless steel bolts you can see that adorn this big Candy Root Beer brown machine.

I have about 100 miles on it and the sound is great as we have our handmade stainless steel 4 into 1 Yoshimura style exhaust system clamped onto this puppy. Notice that we used a big block Ford con rod that I shortened and chromed to use as the hangar.
I also wanted to use some CB750 Connecting rods for the mirrors and I think they look pretty cool.

I hand hammered the gas tank here and smoothed and fitted our stainless Monza-style flip top gas cap and then sealed the gas tank at a radiator shop and pressure tested. There is a lot of work in that gas tank, and it really does make the bike stand out.

The seat is our Razorback that we make and I upholstered it in fine soft tan leather and boy is it soft. We fitted our cool oval LED tail light to show the rear end off and I had a license plate surround from the late 1970's thats shows ya it was all about speed then as it says “Catch Me If You Can!”

We used our new shocks on the back and a one-off drilled and boxed Dresda-style swing arm, reminisent of the road racing bikes I grew up with in the UK.

I had the rims in the UK for a while and I got them sent over to me and pulled them apart, fitted new bearings, polished the outers and painted the inners. They are 30-year old Henry Abe “Star” wheels and boy do they look cool - 19" front and a 16" rear with new tubes and of course the Bridgestone Spitfires that I am known for.

I also fitted a cool set of italian rear sets but polished the hangers. They look great and function even better with a good riding position, too.
This bike has an all-new wire harness and brand new handlebar controls — check the cost of CB750 K1 controls; you will log your pants when you see how much they cost.

I used my Clubman bars on a polished triple tree, with a new master cylinder, new cables, and new levers, finished with some cool root beer flake grips.

I have new steering bearings and I even stripped the lower tree and chromed it to match the polished triple tree I did at the top.
OEM fork ears were not cheap and I used OEM parts like fork gators and chrome dress rings to make sure all looks and stays in great order.

Brand new $300 front fender sits under the frame and you can see we stripped and polished the brake caliper and that has a new o-ring and our very own stainless steel piston to make sure that it will never rust like stock ones do. It has a new bleeder and custom-made braided hoses that work really well.

Polished the speedometer drive and made sure all is good. Includes a new horn and everything functions as it should, but I did incorporate a neutral light into the steering head nut, i thought that would be neat and get rid of that ugly cluster that comes with a stock bike.

I did have a GPS system on this but have just made a new speedometer and you can see the Ton Up pirate emblazoned on the face of the gauge and a new chrome lower and upper too.

I hand-machined the old oil filter cover and that has a K&N inside and all good Lucas Racing oil inside her, a new chain and sprockets (of course) and a new one-off chain guard that we made, drilled and chromed. These are some of the details that set that side of the bike off very well indeed.

Then I polished all the cases and used my original finned speed equipment parts that I have owned for 14 years and i wanted to keep these big fins for a certain machine and this is it, even the starter cover is finned.

Up front I used an Oold Desoto truck fender light and that looks super cool on the bike and functions very well indeed. This bike has brand new chrome turn signals that I use on many of my machines, they show people which way I am heading and of course this has a new regulator rectifier to make sure the volts are right along with a new maintenance-free battery to keep the power on, a new ignition switch and bracket too.

We fitted one of our brand new side stands that we sell now and it also has a clean California title in my name.

The rear brake is completely rebuilt and I drilled the pattern in the side and polished and then made sure it had new spark plugs, springs and actuator, as well as new brake rod and adjusters, no expense was spared on this bike at all.

On the CB750 motor, the carbs are completely rebuilt. They were stripped, cleaned, dipped and plated and boy do they look nice and this time I used a steel dragon Ar box and that is super nice too.

Under the seat we fitted our very own 6061 T6 aluminum aircraft-style battery box and it looks pretty cool tucked inside there, not many people would even realise that until they really start to look at this creation. Sure it’s over done, but I built it to show all the parts that we sell and I have made many magazines all over the globe with it, so I must be doing something right with it.

Hate to sell it, but need to make room for other projects and more new parts we're beginning to carry soon. Hopefully this old girl will soon be on its way to someone that appreciates all the hard work and attention to the details.

I will also have this on my website so you can see more photos on there, but shall try and put as many as I can on here.
I will ship around the globe, but you pay shipping of course, if you want it in another part of the state- then Call- Larry at eagle One on 209-495-3729. Larry picks up from my door and drops off at your door, a very cool guy and has delivered many of my bikes all over the USA, drop him a dime as he WILL look after you.

The kick starter looked boring, so stripped all the chrome off, drilled some cool speed holes and chromed it, looks great now its on the machine, and whilst I was there, I even fitted a mechanical oil pressure gauge to make sure that the heart of this bike is beating very strong indeed.

Over flow pipes and breathers have braided hoses from aircraft and finishes it off very well. Fires right up too, every day with no worries.

So, a very cool 1974 CB750 with a ton of mods and a wicked Candy Root Beer brown and Aztec Gold paint scheme, I chose the Candy as the K1 and K2's had that brown Candy and loved it.
