Charlie James CB


1982 CB750 by Charle James

That's how Charlie describes his build: "Engine is stock with exception of CB900F camshafts new valve cover gasket, timing/valves adjusted, engine covers polished new gaskets for covers as well as Alloy Bolts hardware. Front end is from a early 90's CBR 600 F2, stock CB750 stem pressed and welded onto CBR lower tree, upper yoke, forks, rim, calipers, rotors, fender etc... All from F2. Rear end is mid 90's CBR 600 F3, swing arm, 5" rear wheel with new 48t sprocket, custom shims for pivot bolt, new 530x112 chain, caliper, rotor, etc... Bike Master 7/8 superbike bars mounted to upper tree using vintage KTM bar mounts. 1978 Suzuki GS 550 gas tank with new Pingel Racing petcock adapter plate to run 3/8 male npt type petcocks new Harley style chrome petcock. New old stock OEM Suzuki gas cap. The Bonneville Shop 7" carbon head light bucket added a Halogen lamp that has built in leds wired as front indicators. Carbon looking bar ends and levers. Cone type filters with stainless bands instead of big hose clamps. The hand controls/switches I pulled off a bike I parted out I'm almost positive it was a early 2000's Katana. Polished upper tree and engine side covers not mirror polish didn't want chrome shine but they look great and there is a lot of time into them sanding and polishing. AceWell digital speedometer 3700mx has speed tachometer hi beam indicator neutral light plus more not there best but very fitting for this type of machine. Honda CBR rear sets with new foot rests. Custom sub frame with a very comfortable coffee bean color cafe style seat with a small wrapped hump. Dunlop Sport Max Q2 tires 180/55/17 rear and 120/70/17 front. Integrated Led tail light strip with signals. YTX9bs AGM battery in a fabricated battery box located under the bike, behind rear of engine also using a Suzuki battery strap. Vance and Hines Vintage 4-in-1 in great shape with baffles in tact very nice sound and loud when you open it up. New jets from Dime City 70/122 this combo has been working great for me here in Ohio: obviously if you take the bike to different elevation or cold/hotter/humid etc. it may need adjusted to your area. Inside of carbs cleaned inspected replaced some hardware out sides brushed off and lightly solvent cleaned but the engine cases and carbs still have there original finish so there is dirt/grime chips to finish on motor, I really don't like to paint motors: always feels like you’r hiding something; this bike has been around for more than 30 years and its heart (engine) earned that finish! Stock wire harness has been shortened but everything is still there everything is neatly tucked wrapped and hidden, under tank houses flasher relay, fuse panel and solenoid, under the sub frame towards front of seat mounted are the igniters and r/r.
