This is an original 1973 CB 750 Honda Chopper built on an Amen Savior Frame. It has a Girder front end with newly installed steering neck bearings. The wheels are Invader front and rear. It has a drum brake on the rear and there is no front brake and no front fender. I installed a Springer Solo seat, but I have the original up/down king/queen seat to go with it. I placed the up/down seat on the bike so you could see both styles. I also installed a full rear fender and I also have the original fender as well. The engine is a 1976 CB750E and runs good. I installed different pipes, but I also have the original 4 into one pipes. The motor was recently tuned, points, plugs, timing, valves, and compression check and everything is set as it should be. It has a newly installed wiring harness and the charging system has been redone and works as it was intended. Both tires are new. There are a few of these classics still around, but are getting harder to find. There is plenty of chrome for those who like chrome. This is not a show quality chopper at this time. It is a rider and could be made into a very nice looking bike with some effort. I have a clear Florida title which is titled to the frame. Give me a call if you are interested. Thank you, Bill SOLD 11 MAY 2016!!!
Loud Pipes on this bike for sure!!!!!

Using a 7/16 threaded rod, three nuts, 1x1.5 pvc pipe, some zip ties and few choice swear words easy way to remove springs on plunger.

The latest on the chopper -- now with the final bodywork??? The bike is a full custom build, with a mix of vintage and new components. The frame is a 70s Amen Savior frame, a quasi-hardtail (aka plunger frame) -- the rear axle rides on vertical springs, like the bikes of the 30s and 40s. The rear springs are pretty stiff and it doesn't move much more than an inch or so -- mostly, it takes the edge off of big bumps. The front end is a very nice newer Harley style springer front end with integrated gas shock, a 21" front wheel and a nice modern disk brake. Currently has sportster bars and controls, and a modified Fatbob tank. Modern repro of a Lycett type solo-seat which were used on the pre-unit Brit bikes (Nortons, BSA, Enfields and Triumphs) in the 30's 40s and 50s. It has no seat pan -- rather the upholstery rides on a web of stretched springs -- and it is riding on 6" springs. All told, the bike is pretty darn comfy :) Power is from a nicely built '75 Yamaha XS 650 engine with new carbs and ignition system, etc. Full custom chrome long tube exhaust system terminating in slip-on mufflers with removable baffles. The XS650 engine is a pretty OK power plant and this one is pretty well dialed. . . but the frame could easily take a V-twin and my original plan was to put in a Sportster engine at some point down the road. . . although the XS engine is growing on me. We'll see. . .
