Chris Graziano is a police officer from Wisconsin. He sent us his story about his latest build. He’s built three café racers over the years. His boss, the chief of Police saw his 1976 cb750 and loved it. What better way to get favor with the boss than to build a Cafe Racer for him.
The boss said he had an old bike – the first one he bought. He had given it to a family member and guess where it ended up, of course – in a barn. Chris and his boss began pulling pictures and talking about what he liked.
Chris stripped the 1978 GS750 down to the frame and rebuilt or replaced almost every part from the forks to the wheel bearings. “I rebuilt the top end of the bike and we added several add ons to the bike. I love working on old bikes and bringing them back from the dead. This bike was fun and is pretty quick. The most difficult challenge was getting the carbs tuned right with the 4 to 1 pipes and the air pods on the carbs it took several times rejetting the carbs to get them right. I hope to build another bike for myself soon”, Chris told us.
Good luck and we hope to see it when you do, Chris. Send us your bike photos and bike stories and like us on Facebook.
