We met Matt in Yuba City, California at the Old-Stf open house. His home-built Honda was an eyecatcher with a high build quality and perfect lines. Here's the short, sweet story of the bike with the questionable origin and pedigree. Thanks for giving us the lowdown, Matt.
Engine, year and make, model, modifications: '76 CB750 (I think)
Frame: Think it's an Amen but if any CB gurus out there know, please pipe up
Fork: Narrow springer, not sure who made it
Chassis mods: Extended the neck and deraked it
Tire/wheel size and style: Front is a 19" laced to a Hallcraft spool. Rear is a 16" harley setup with a 43-tooth sprocket
Favorite thing about this bike: Pretty much everything
Next modification: Paint, chrome, highway pegs
Other mods, accessories, cool parts, etc: I guess the little headlight is cool. Works like shit but who really needs to see in the dark. Stacks are cool, anyone want to volunteer some tuning tips?
Any building or riding story or info you'd like to include: No awesome ride stories yet since i just finished it but they will come. I traded a '65 Norton for it and redid the whole damn thing. thats my build story
Thanks to: I've got to say thanks to my lady; thanks to my buddy Jared for the seat not bad for his first try; My buddy Chris for the fender; Vince for the extra hands and beer; My parents for allowing me to take over their shop; I guess my friend Greg too, even though he wasn't much help
