Hey guys/ girls

In my voyage for fellow stude builders I found this site. Great for inspiration! Anyway, I'm 19, from Illinois, a 2 yr welding student, I own an 89 bronco, a 78 1/2 ton ford, a 1980 LTD, a 1950 International, and a 46 Studebaker M15. Oh, I also have two 750 hondas.

They're both 74s. One is chopped, the other is not. Maybe I should put a picture or two up of em.

cb750?

yea post a pic,

i had a 74 360 a long time ago. it was a pretty versitle bike.

did you chop the bike yourself or have it done?

i have a trike that im gonna chop soon, that why i was asking.

i know it has to be super straight - so imma have to do some research before i chew it up.

you notice the right angle in the front. its gotta go. imma chop it at the angle and bend it forward and then take the head stock and bend it out. should pull it out about 2 ft

hey

Nah, I did it myself. Its got 10" over forks, an extended swingarm, a peanut tank, and the old organ style drag pipes for now. I really need to have a seat made for it... there's surely someone on here that does that isn't there?
Your trike looks really good, is it VW powered?

thanks

probably is. whats the deal with the seat you have on it?
i have to make one for a gs100 i have chopped all to hell. im not raking it but i took about 5 pounds out of the frame alone. the og seat was about 3 foot long, and i figured i would be riding alone so i shortend the frame up by a foot or so. ill probably just do a woven fiberglass seat frame and try to match it to a seat that is already produced so i can just buy an aftermarket cover for it.

yea its a vw motor with a swinger front end. i needs alot of beautification really. throttle on the handlebars brake and clutch on the floor. im going to try to take the brake and clutch off the frame and put the clutch on the bars i can extend it out a ways.

i dont kno what imma do with the brake tho lol i dont like the pedal assy.

hey

What's wrong with the seat i've got on it... well.. I don't have one. It gets kinda hard on the ars. I finally got pictures of it up today, so you should be able to see it. I don't think I've ever seen a frame quite like that. Most of em, I think, have a bike style neck and down tubes with a tank, usually just a dummy. Yeah, you're right, that 90 looks kinda funky. Seems like to me it needs something up there... some chrome or polished aluminum maybe. As for the pedals.. you don't need a brake, just a concrete block on a rope...

crazy

wow does that fram glo in the dark? lol....

here are a couple pix of the frame to the gs i chopped up..

since this photo the tank and the fender have been redesigned..

you like that tank? i just smoothed out the fat old tank on the gs and imma run it. your bike looks good so far tho.

i like the block idea... should i tie it to the frame? or just wear it around my neck?

Looks pretty good, you did a nice job on the flames. I like how the seat height is lower on that... the 750 are straight back. I think for best results, you have to tie the block around your neck then to the frame. That way, if you can't stop you'll probably pass out, so you won't feel a thing. Another idea are some really thick soled shoes.

No, i haven't seen it glow yet... that's actually the 'anodized' spray paint from Autozone. I like it cause gas and oil dont bother it. The GS... that's a suzuki, right? I've never ridden a suzuki... for some reason they're not very popular here.

gs

ha ha i dont think suzuki is popular anywhere.
i just bought it cuz it was 50 bucks : )

then i found out that they used the inline 4's for drag - so i started choppin the cruiser to make a streetfighter.

ya kno - ive never ridden a suzuki either. maybe a dirt bike.

ill be posting pix of the tank an fender soon they have both been redone.

that seat might as well be straight back. i thought about putting a "V" where the seat meets the tank... i dunno. thats how the bike im going off of is. - then id have to strip an repaint. yay.

the chain and block didnt work so i built an ejector seat.
