That is a very nicely done cafe racer, I have been looking all over for alloy rims to fit my 1980 cb650 to replace the rusty chrome ones on it. What size are the ones in the picture?, and where did you get them from?.

Thanks.......Barry.

Cheers Barry,

The rims are from the CB750A (automatic) Honda fitted them to the later addition to try and bolster flagging sales of a particularly bland bike (my view).
The hubs are from a CB750K5/6 with modifications to the front hub to accept twin discs (CB750FA callipers and CB550 discs)

All changed now though, Ive fitted a front end from a Suzuki GT750J (1972) giving 4TLS.

So the twin disc set up is up for grabs (35mm fork tubes).

All the best,
Dave.

looks so much better with that front end, not that there was owt wrong with it in the first place. Smile

all that polishing is enough to give me sleepless nights though.

well impressed, dave.

Cheers Lads,
By the way, its not as shiny as the pics show it, for example I've tried to keep the ali in a dull state, just clean.....we don't do bling here affraid
I'm sure that when the shoes bed in it will stop much better than at the mo.

Cheers miffa, yes I'm well happy with the result. I am informed that the RC750 oil pump has a higher flow, will have to do some digging
