I paint bikes for Jesse, In fact, I painted that one for the S&S tour. He has the oil tank split up. Part gas, part oil. Alot of times he will also put some fluids in the fender.

Here's my 93 FXR al chopped up. Obviously the paint is a bit overboard as I am a painter. It was and still is a great mobile billboard. Rides great. Quick dump in the weeds with the airbags.

I wish I had gotten the 1100 in the first place, I grew out of the 650 after 4 months, but i have been able to mod it enough now to keep up and do what i want it to, so no worries anymore

ooh ooh ooh! I can play!

He's my CB750 frame. NOS rigid frame made in the 70's by Tom McMullen's (Magazine publisher extraordinaire) "AEE" company. I scored it for FREE!



The details about it...I was living above Evolution Tattoo in Santa Rosa at the time, I rented the upstairs of the building. I got together with those guys all the time and we'd all wrench on our projects. So one day I was coming home with a chopper magazine and Mike asks me "Hey, Cameron...Are you looking into building a chop"

"Yeah, why?"

"Well, I have a chopper frame if you're interested. I was gonna build one, but the Nova Gasser is taking up too much time and money"

"What's it a frame for"

"It's for some sort of Harley, but none of the Harley guys I've asked can tell me exactly which motor it takes"

So I check out the frame.

"Dude, That's no Harley frame...That's a Honda CB750 frame!"

"Honda? No fk'n WAY man...That's for a CHOPPER!"

"Yeah, a HONDA chopper...People used to chop Honda 750's all the time back in the day...They're making a comeback. I'll bet you a free sleeve!...If I am right, you design and tattoo a sleeve of my choice. If I am wrong, you can give me a whole sleeve of YOUR choice."

"How about if you're right and it's for a fk'n HONDA you can have the frame if you want it?"

So I pointed out the frame mounts in my Clymer manual for CB750's, then I showed him some ads for rigid frames, both big twin and sporty in The Horse.

"Wow...You're right...I guess that IS a Honda frame! You want it?"

"Hell yes I do!"

Plans are simple and traditional. 16 on the back, 21 on a girder fork up front. Sporty tank. Trailer fender. Apes. Solo seat. Drag pipes.

Paint will either be some bass boat flake monster or I'll do it red with black stripes like some of Eddie Van Halen's guitars.

gee tim, you and hubby must be related
since I won't be riding with him at all (personal thing) he's gonna change the seat and longer back handles. and is planning on changing fenders, with a frenched '57 chevytail lite in rear .
but he says, no, no cafe racer, just more comfy for his long leggs to get that 40+mpg to and from work

doing some mods to that 750 up there. have made a custom seat for it, tank will hae to stay as is, for now, and have switched out the dual pipes to a single 4 to one pipe from a 900. But I have a problem, I am also swithing the 900 handle bars to this . I have been searching for a color coded wiring diagram, , have one for the 750, need one for the 900 so I can match the wires and get this thing running.
Anybody by chance have one they can scan and send me or a site to get one.
Thanks all~

you scanned it at too high of a resolution, so when photobucket resized it it it had to be super small to make the memory size right. best bet to keep clarity would be to e-mail it as an attachment.

thanks blacktruck~ but he needs one for a cb900 bike. the colors on the wires on the 900 handles don't match the 750. The 750 has about as much of a ratsnest in wire behind the headlight as an old bug does.
He's got the next two days off, so guess he can trace wire by wire and figure it out~
thanks for the scan though
