Greetings from Scottish Highlands
« on: October 24, 2020, 02:27:22 am »
Hello, been lurking on here and uk sohc forums for a while while building my bike. It’s a cb750k7 and was in poor state when purchased back in 2015, However it ran roughly and was all their. Gradually over the years been stripped down, and being made into a brat/street scrambler. Engine was stripped down and rebuilt and any new parts needed was fitted such as guides, valves, rings and gaskets. Now currently on finishing stages of wiring and hopefully getting it started. It’s a new loom fitted, just ordered dynatek ignition and magna coils. Will post some pics up soon. Been around bikes all my life, had Kawasaki zzr600, R1, RSV1000, VTR1000, was with out a bike for a few years  as I was caught speeding and heavily fined while on my RSV, but I brought the Honda as I always loved the 70s bikes, the look and smell, also have tucked away a yam xs750, loved the triples and sound so that’s next when this bike is done, but will be left standard. It was a USA bike imported into uk which I have had for 3years waiting to get on the road.
Anyway just a quick introduction from highlands of Scotland.

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
