If you build it right, they will come. It was not just the mantra for the industrial revolution we also see it quite often with custom motorcycles.
Today’s featured bike a Honda CB750 Four custom is important for Manuel and Yann of Sur Les Chapeaux De Roues because it is their first custom project built for a customer. Important because as the mantra goes you impress with this project and more customers will come.
According to Manuel “This 1976 Honda CB750 Four was commissioned by our very first customer from Paris. When we received the donor bike we found it was in a pretty bad state and had 70,000 km on it.”
With 70,000 km there is no surprise that the engine needed a full rebuild. The stock Honda CB750 Four engine repair includes a new set of pistons, distribution chain, clutch, seals and a custom exhaust system.
The frame was modified at the rear to adapt the new style. At the rear this custom Honda CB750 Four includes a pair of rear shocks, while at the front it features an oil spy front fork. The stock wheels were crowned with new bearings and a new brake.
“We spent almost 3 months on his bike. The biggest challenge of this Honda CB750 Four was the painting of the fuel tank with a raw side, and to repair the motor we spent a lot of time on it.
This Honda CB750 Four custom was our first customer build and he was so happy when he saw the bike finished, it was very cool to have his gratitude of our work”.
