Great job on your build Joe. Beautiful bike. Coming in second to a national record holder is still quite an accomplishment. I need to duplicate your front end.

Congrats Frank!!

Congratulations to dragracer on his purpose-build CB750F drag racing bike.

Kudos to JoeCooley also for his 750 cafe bike.  Something tells me he will live to fight another day with his Rickman.

Thanks to all that voted for my bike. I appreciate it very greatly. Much respect to my fellow nominee and his awesome build. Preserving these old bikes in one form or another is truly the most important thing in the end, and to be recognized by the forum members at this level is an honor.

Thanks Bill. Funny thing is now that this bike is done and will likely run low 10's, I'm already contemplating building another street legal 10 second bike. Yes, I know I have a problem.  Time for rehab.  My name is Frank and I'm a habitual drag bike builder. 🤪
