Now that has some great lines... a tall sissy bar would really set it all off. A bit worried about how much twist the frame will have without any seat post, side rails, top motor mount etc. But very nice so far.

Hiya Prof
It has a c/post just a little further back than normal zoom in its near the cut away fender and is curved to follow fender
I have never run a top engine mount on any of my CB's so far and never had a problem
Not sure about tall sissy bar
cheer's

Took site up to 400% and could see curved seat post... very neat... Top motor mount is suggested more to tie frame to motor as a structural unit, not for benefit of motor... so might be an idea to keep a close check on things on your first rides.

A local bloke built an xs650 with tall steering head (and his tubing WAS definitely too thin as well) and the frame actually noticabley twisted as you kicked it over! I took it for a short ride around the block and it was nice to ride; sat really steady on the road, but a bit like spagetti in the one or two corners I was able to try.

But a very nice job and a beautifully made springer.

those of you with a keen eye will also notice that it now has a cb750 engine instead of the original 900 lump
slight change of plan right at the end of the build as this is a newer engine which is a 1985

Very nice. How do you get on with the long front ends? Did you have to lighten of the springs for the lighter bike (HD being a much heavier beastie)? My sons 550 has 45 degree rake with telescopics and is beautiful on the road... just a bit floppy pushing it around the shed.
