January 2006... Jerry's CB 750...

Jerry's CB 750...
Starting with frame, wheels motor and Drag Specialties accessories, Jerry built this bike over many years, patiently polishing every part by hand and hand crafting as much as possible from stainless steel...

Forward brake controls and linkage back to original brake lever pivot...

Image
Rear axle is still held in its original Honda swingarm ends. Note megaphones which were very popular with 70's Aussie chopper builders. Rear maltese cross taillight is original Drag Specialties. Same brand seat was initially solidly mounted but "too rough for my bony backside..." says Jerry. He is currently making a sprung solo seat. Note oil gauge.

Another 70's Drag Specialties item...

Homebuilt oil tank is a tight fit under air cleaners...

Image
Good rider's view shot... Stainless steel handlebars danced around like a bunch of wild cossacks when being welded. This style was a common Aussie solution to having T bars that were adjustable... Nice coffin tank with many coats of lacquer...

Image
Stainless gear linkage and forward controls...
