Hmmm... Nice English Style Giuliari seat, too! Looks killer on your bike!  Thanks!  ;D  RR

Very cool, Speed King.  But you can thank Nippon.  He's the one who pushed for an "English Style" Giuliari type seat; it was a great idea.  But I'm very pleased that you're happy.  Ride well!  RR

Fueltank is from ES

I like that tank from what I can see, similar shape to Capry's Dunstall tank but looks cleaner. I google searched ES fuel tank and can't find anything. Could you point me in the right direction?

I'd agree, the only thing missing is low bars but even those aren't a necessity. Keep it comfy it you like it that way. What tank is that? It looks similar to a Manx tank but without the side dents.

what's the deal with your back wheel?
is that the cycle-X disc setup?
everything I say is pure speculation and
I have no idea what I'm talking about  ._.

No, that's not from Cycle X.
I drilled the complete stock disc.

I've never seen a CB750 spoke rear wheel with a disc on it.. is that cause it's an F2?

Normally a F2 has comstar wheels and a F1 has a discbrake with a spoke rear wheel.
Mine is a F2 , the rearbrake and the sprocket flange are from a F2 , but the hub is from a F1  , so I could use spokes and a aluminium Akront rim.

I'll toss another one in.
My recently finished '77 CB550F Interceptor.





My god man.  That.........is.........beautiful.

The seat looks really comfy too!! ;)
Cafe Racing is mainly a matter of taste. It is an atavistic mentality, a peculiar mix of low style, high speed, pure dumbness, and overweening commitment to the Cafe Life and all its dangerous pleasures. I am a Cafe Racer myself, on some days - and it is one of my finest addictions. ~H. S. Thompson~

So many places to post my bike.  I didn't see this thread initially.  Well here is my CB550.  I'm a female rider so needed to change out the stock seat so I wasn't always on tip toe.  I'm planning on taking part in the world tour...hope to see other cafes...
