The frame has a curve in the back bone to the right and the fork angle is out to.
Since the frame no longer has a vin number in the system I didn't think ther was any point spending money to fix it . A new frame should be cheaper. The bike is a bit of mix  I tried to attach a photo but I don't think it has been approved yet haha. It's  a cb500 frame and motor , gsxr forks and brakes front and rear , Harley wheels ....

Hi guys, Marlborough here.I've got a CB750K1 that was last registered in 79 and was pulled to bits.I got it in about 90 but there was too much missing to do anything at the time,not to mention I was suffering from a bad case of poverty for a long time.But a couple of months ago I decided to dig through the sheds and see just what I had and then I realised that because it had been pulled to bits so early what was there was original.So I've been buying parts when the right ones come up.
Also doing up an XS650.

Hi all,

Just got my first CB750F 1982 this weekend. Bought off a guy in Woodville and rode back to Auckland on saturday. It was a really nice ride. Engine is in great shape! Really enjoyed.

This will be my 6 month project as I'm planing to renovate a bit, put new seat, handle bar, front/back lights etc etc.

I'm in Auckland and looking for a group to go for weekend rides. Let me know if any of you are in Auckland so we can meet up.

I'll be posting some pics later.

Cheers

Hi,

Just a quick question for Fishman Phil....

I read on a post, you painted your bike using CRC products a few years ago...  Just want to ask how it held up and would you recommend??

Also is there anything else that would be better?? (Budget Based)

I can't afford powder coating!!

Cheers

Rich
Hi Rich ... the CRC held up very well, but have just swapped the frames between the bikes which meant a complete strip down of both bikes, and went over everything. This time I used Supercheap Autos and purchased Duplicolour engine enamels and used that for all frame parts and the engine.
1972 Honda CB350F (2); 1975 CB400F; 1983 CBX400F (1); 1962 Suzuki MA50 (1); Suzuki M15 (3); Suzuki M15Mk2 (2); Suzuki M31 (2); 1936 James H12 (2); 1948 Triumph Speed Twin 500; 1989 Suzuki GSXR250F; Yamaha Chappy (2); alot of work yet to be done.
