reader rides | dave’s 1981 honda cb750 bobber

this is dave jansen’s clean cb build.

the hardtail is a hand-welded custom mod as was the seat suspension. his bars are clubman’s that were on the bike when dave bought it. the electrical was redone to accommodate the new turn signals and the engine is strong and little has been done to it past a standard tune-up.

the custom bobber seat is from anvil customs.

i dig the look, even if i’d lower the tank on the frame. congratulations on a slick cb bobber, dave.

  1. Where did the sportster tank come from that is featured on this bike? Also was anything done to make the tank fit with the triple backbone frame? Thanks

    • Hey Braiden, looks like a very standard issue Sportster tank. You should be able to find them by the dozens (of thousands) out there. Just assume everything on every build on bikerMetric requires some custom fabrication to make it fit right ;)

  2. Hey Adrian, I dig the seat set up on this. Any idea what that shock absorber came off of?
