 I accept and am honored to be in the same thread as Bankerdanny. One of the few fine folks on this site I have had the privilege of riding with. Cold, wet and both with clutch issues, but we did it.   (actually I think he had wet coils or something but anyway we survived adversity for the sake of meeting a few sohc'ers)

Thanks so much guys! Very happy to finally have my bike built as I fully envisioned it. Been riding it quite a lot lately now that I have insurance and plates sorted as well!

I dont know if I still need to accept the nomination, but I very graciously do.

Here are a couple other pictures I have of the machine:

Finally, my Honda collection in full!

heres my Japanese market 1971 CB750, in correct Polynesian Blue. Its mostly original , only paint and consumables have been replaced. I purchased it with 8500 km [about 5000 miles] on the clock in poor condition, and have slowly upgraded various parts, trying at all times to avoid repop parts.
