Hello everyone,

I am from Boston, MA and I got into motorcycles, especially vintage ones, about 5-6 years ago. I was in love with Cafe Racers. I found a good project and started with a 1975 CB360T. I learned a lot about the bike and once I finished it and rode it for about 3 years,  I wanted to take on something bigger and venture more into building different bikes. Then I picked up a 1978 Cb750k for a really good deal. Initially, I wanted to keep it very simply and just change up a few things. As I got into it, I started to get inspired from other builds and dumped more time, effort, and money into it. It is currently waiting for the fuel tank to be fixed due to some pin hole leaks. But overall the bike is pretty much done. Here are some pictures of both bikes.

I didn't take many pictures until I already got into the projects. But I will post  whatever I have on my laptop towards the end of this week.
