1989 CB-1 powered buy a '96 CBR600F3 engine. Modern brakes and suspension to go with it.

Wait, is that a Ducati 1098 end can?

CBR 600 forks with calipers, where are the wheels & rotors from? They look pretty good.

Sure! There was no change to the fact that this bike handles impeccably, but low speed maneuvering and balance is vastly improved. It just inspires more confidence since you have more leverage and your push/pull mechanics are more in line with the bar axis of rotation. I've actually started doing motard-style foot drags in some instances--it's just silly fun.

However, I haven't had it back out on the track yet. I expect it to be fine, but I'm sure it will require some more effort to keep the front end down. But this is mostly a street bike--there are racebikes for track time.

The bike weighs 403 lbs full of gas.




There's a thread about the build on CustomFighters.com here.

Sorry for the late reply, haven't checked the thread lately.

Yes, the end can is in fact a reworked 1098 muffler. Looks like it belongs, doesn't it ?
The wheels are CBR600F3, the front brake rotors are Brembo Superbike Rotors. They are radially and axially vented, fully floating and work like a charm.

No, not a member of DTT, but really not sure what that is.

About time I post up a picture of my 73 cb750. It's got optical triggered ignition, Cycle-X 4-2-1 exhaust, and a webcams 41a cam. I think if I bore it out to 850 it'll really wake up.

My CB 1000

I have had the bike now for a few months. Getting most of the little things fixed and sorted. I had posted a question about the bike falling on its face at 6500 rpms in second and third gears. I did find the problem after taking the carbs apart. For some odd reason Honda put a pre air cleaner just above the carbs. It is small but there is a foam element in it. It crumbled and work its way piece by piece into the carbs even in the slides.

Just in case you dont know or have not checked. The small match book sized filter foam was 2.08 at the dealer could save alot of work.
