Hey guys, new to the site just thought I'd intro myself. I'm from the Boston area and earlier this spring i picked up a sweet project bike, 74 CB450 K7, to restore / cafe racer / modify. It's been alot of fun and a lot of learning. These things are finicky as hell but damn sure are fun to ride. Have done alot of work just to get her on the road and safe to ride, and have a long way to go to get it the way i want, but looking forward to doing it all myself. The pic on the left is as she sits now, on the right is what she may look like when i'm done.

Peace

Welcome to the group.

If you're going to mod that bike please make the parts you're not using available to the folks trying to restore them. Survivors in such pristine condition are quite rare.

Took the words right out of my mouth (and off my keyboard). That's a decent looking survivor, for sure

I'd ditch the Ape Hangers for standard bars 1st.
Then ride it for a while to determine what else you want to do.
Do your mod's in small 1 at a time and see if you really like them.

Modifiing to an agressive riding position may not be as much fun as it looks.
COOL looking & Fun to Ride are not always compatible.
