We now return to the original subject matter......

This was from my attempt at Superbike racing back in 1981



1981 CB750F bored/ stroked to 1025cc the max limit then. Pre some of
the factory goodies. (dry sump & close ratio trans)


19" Morris wheel, Brembo brakes, 13" brake rotors (full floating)
Goodyear slicks. I figured if I wasn't fast enough, least I could brake later!!


This was with the dry sump kit installed. You had to fabricate your
own oil tank and no plans provided. This is where I learned about
fluid dynamics!! It held 8qts. We joked it was a total loss system,
just like my ignition!! 34mm Kehin carbs. Oil cooler not on the bike
in this shot due to crack in the inlet fitting.


Bassini pipe, 18" Morris wheel, notice the rear suspension upper mounts
moved forward. the rear frame was cut and raised up about 4" higher
than stock. Pic from just before I sold it. Out of ALL the bikes I've
owned, this is the only one I wish I still had.


Inside the cases, Crower rods, pistons from RC engineering, Crane cams,
Manley valves, springs and shim under bucket. Paying for most of this
out of my pocket the dry clutch kit was just a little to pricey for me.
