1973 CB750 adventure bike?
So I'm building this 73 CB750 and it was going to end up a sort of cafe bike. About a week ago I decided to take it another direction. More of a scrambler style but with a real seat under my arse and some forethought into some suspension mods to turn it into an ADV bike. Something you could take down a gravel road and handle OK. Some folks have told me I'm a little crazy using a "big heavy four cylinder bike to go off road" but hey the thing weighs in at about 490 pounds dry. Not so bad really.
I'm documenting the build on my YouTube channel. Here's the videos posted so far. I'll post part 1 and let you take it from there. Part 8 is where I decided to go ADV with the build. I'm up to part 10 which I posted yesterday. Enjoy!

Not crazy at all
I converted a CB400/4 into an XR460/4
It rides well and is very stable in the dirt.
I fitted XL250R forks, custom spindle. extended the swingarm 100mm and installed some Husky Ohlins on the rear I found on Fleabay.
The 400/4 engine (now has a Yoshi 460 kit) has 6 speed gearbox and 10,000rpm red line however it is light
I'm not a complete idiot -- Some parts are missing
