Thanks! I have to agree. Just wait till next week : )bloodhay wrote:damn i want to soooo badly do this to my cb750, but i need it to still be comfy for long hauls and im a cheap ass, but i am for sure getting rid of the bars, i just need to decide what to get
CB750's are very popular for these cafe racer conversions. Check out dotheton.com and cb750cafe.com for cafe racer stuff.
As for bars, if you're going for the cafe racer look, get clubman handlebars like on my bike. If you've got money to spare, get clip ons. But since you want something comfortable, I would say get superbike or daytona bars.
im thinking super bike bars or daytona just cause the clubmans tend to cause some dents when full locked XD and i down a rubber pad on the bars or tank, and i know i would forget if i fully locked it i would dent the tank.

I am actually getting the same exact style break light/tail light/turn signal combo for the Honda I am doing

Got pics up here:

So that seat...it just slides over the frame, or is it mounted somehow?

Your bike is coming out great, I can't wait to see it in its final stages of completion, and see it in action!
What is that behind your Suzuki? That red Honda? Is it an XR? That has the same engine as the FT if so lol.
