I saw the pics of the finished bike over on ADV Rider and knew there had to be a good story behind such a cool build. So I pm’d the owner to see if he’s be interested in sharing a few details and I was not disappointed!. Thank You John! There’s a lot of personal touches and one-off parts in this one. It’s obvious that you’ve put some time into it. Thanks Again!

I would be happy to share some info on the bobber I posted on advrider. It started out as a 1974 CB750 which was hardtailed and tranformed into the bike you saw. I have been working on it for 2 years it is almost done. I just need to finish dialing in the carbs. It has been a pain since I use straight pipes and a open air intake. Everything on the bike that is custom I built. I do my own powder coating, except for frames since my oven is not that big. I tryed to go with a minimalistic, clean, old school approach. I am happy you like it. If you have any other questions or want to see any other pics (I have a ton) let me know.
Here’s the Before and Build pics. That’s quite a save!
