Maybe Its Time

So, I have been wanting to build something like a Dick Mann type of CB 750 for ages, like years. Only make it for the road, with lights and all that. I reckon a doner bike is no problem and should be cheap enough, mainly 'cos it doesn't need to be original. Right, well Seat and tank no problem. Pipes easy peasy, just a couple of Biltwell kits and some good welding. Rearsets and central oil tank again pretty simple. Paint? a no brainer. However, its that fairing, hard to find and well expensive, it needs to be one with the perspex bubble for the front light too. Or maybe some leds frenched into the race one. I can muck about with it to make it all fit. mmmmmmmmmmm.

    For a cheap and easy foundation...but the fairing? I reckon a jigsaw, a heat gun and a sheet of plexiglass would be a good start.
