    Default the new vintage steed

    It was time for a bit of a vintage addition to the current stable in the garage. So, I picked up...



    ...a 77 Honda cb750 super sport





    Now the garage is getting a little full.



    I have grand aspirations in my head of how I could make this into the perfect cafe racer but I will probably end up giving it to my brother as a wedding present so I may go a different route with it as he is not much of a fan of cafe bikes. Oh well, a little bit of time and a little bit of tinkering will tell.

    Looks like your head is just as full as your garage. Good luck with that.

    Yeah, I would like to think so. Sometimes it seems pretty empty though...

    Here is a quick partial walkaround with it running. As ugly as the stock exhaust is on this thing it actually doesn't sound half bad.

    ...a little cleaning (OK, maybe a LOT of cleaning), a little paint, some new bars, and a few other random things so far. Soon there will be some new grips, a new throttle, new ignition, headlight, headlight brackets, seat, tail, exhaust, etc...
