And fitted to CB750's.... Click if anyone would like to fit a set ££££££  8)

Personally, if building a nice usable but not concourse bike I would keep them as they are period goodies.
I will be selling them if anyone is interested as the bike is going back stock.
Would rather someone from the forum had them if they are interested otherwise they will be going on flebay

The shipping costs from Japan are horrendous so selling here you should be able to achieve even more £££££  ;D

Lot of work Paul but as you have previously proved - doable. Its actually very similar to the way my K2 came but without the fairing and mine where bare crankcases.
Whats the  bellmouths like as I'm on the lookout for some for the CR rep - if your not using them
Phil,
            There are only three of them :(

Well the bike is all stripped and parts ready for powder coating and chroming.
Polished the hubs and started the re-build on the wheels.
Still looking for a set of barrels to get the engine strip and rebuild under way.

You bought new rims with text on the side.

Could´nt the old ones be saved?
