seems to me like a great project, i like spoked wheels, but when you are going to use the showa fork whit the brembo brakes, you get a mix of classic and hi tech and then i preffer the brembo wheels.
good luck whit building and keep us informed,

think the Showa will be funcky with wire wheels!

And try to keep the supertrapp muffler with the 4-1 headers, Supertrapps are nice and loud! (and adjustable by removing or adding disks on the end bit)

Spoked Wheels CB750K/GL1000 front end

Post  warthog1959 on Fri 29 Jan - 17:09

I have a 78F2 and wanted spokes also. Initially I could not get an answer on how to do this and so I managed to get hold of a pair of vintage alloys for this bike, you can see my project on this forum. Major work about to commence I hope. Any how in the meantime I have bought a CB750K rear hub, wheel, brakes and tyre. This was with the intention of having bits ready to up date (or retro date...) my 'finished' bike next winter. Then I got an answer off SOHC4 US use the front end of a 1975-1977 GL1000 Goldwing (Dual discs). The entire front end will go onto the CB750 frame and although yours is a later model the frame looks the same. I have now managed to get hold of a front end for £150. The only issue for me is that I don't like the top bridge clamp on the GL1000 and the tubes are 37mm on the GL but they are 35mm on the CB750F2. This can be resolved in many ways including possibly a Billet yoke triple clamp or just milling out my F2 yoke. Looks like next winters project is going to happen this winter. Any how that is a route you can research, CB750K rear hub brake wheel with swing arm and a Honda Goldwing Gl1000 75-77 front end. Plenty of information on SOHC4

Started with putting the engine back together !







about the front end and the wheels, for the beginning it's going to be the USD fork with the 3spoke wheels.

painted the gas tank & rear fender today, after a long time of filling & abrading the filler & filling again & abrading again ..
Also i hammered the knee indents in the gas tank.

Hi,

pics of the finished tank will come after a few weeks, still need to put on the decals & clear coat.

I made the saddle, buth the mousse is way to soft ..

Began with drawing a line, and than just cut it piece by piece (the electric kitchen knife was not long enough to do the entire width in one time)



The result:

Engine almost back together! only some covers missing (need to polish them first).



Also i found an AMAZING product for polishing, i would recommend it to anyone of you ! I sandblasted some alu stuff, and then i've been rubbing it with very very fine sandpaper. & Then, just do some of the product on it, rub it in with a soft cloth & get this result !

After 1 minute rubbing on it (only the wing):



i think its pretty nice !

Also, i'm making this bike for my thesis on school. Next week we have 2 weeks vacantion & i'm taking it all home to mount & fit it all. He has to run att least at the end of april !

welded the rear swingarm for suiting a brembo brake caliper "beugel" , sorry i don't know the englisch word :d




progress:




Vork is passend !

the bar of the USD front fork was to short for fitting into my frame, so what did we do: we pressed the original out of the crown plate, fitted it to the crown plate of the USD fork (we heated the crown plate & froze the headset bar), with this result :


this was the original of the USD:


SO, i fitted the fork into the frame, looks verryyy tasty !



Decals :



decals are going to come below the varnish

Time for one hell of an update !
Last weeks i worked my ass of for getting him ready. Schoolyear is almost over !

Finished the gas tank, my first painting experience;


Also bought a polyester seat & painted him in the same colors;


Mounting everything at my workplace @home;


Transport back to school!

Still a few things to finish, carbs, iginition, ... I had only one week left with 4 lesson periods of 50minutes to get him ready for "beurs" (sorry don't know the englisch word for it) with many works of different schools.

as he stood at the beurs;


Afterwards, finished the ignition (had to buy a new electronic ingnition, destroyed the previous one). And he started! Amazing sound coming out of the supertrapp exhaust. Carbs still have to be tuned, it runs much too poor.


Movie of the first start-up;
