It’s been a while since we’ve covered a Wrenchmonkees bike, but this Honda CB750 K7 caught our eye for its simplicity and elegance. Intended for a low budget makeover, the amount of money available for custom work decreased dramatically when the drive chain snapped on the highway, cracking the crankcase.
Not a huge cause for worry to the ever resourceful Monkees. They welded the crankcase back together, rebuilt the engine then set out on customization.
The rear subframe was looped and fitted with a custom seat and rear fender. The mufflers were replaced with short megaphone items. The oil tank and battery box were replaced with custom fabricated aluminum housings. Up front, the front suspension was lowered, a new speedo mount was fitting to accompany the Tarozzi headlight brackets, and white Posh grips were fitted. See what we mean about simple? The only real mechanical alteration was replacing the stock 17-inch rear wheel with an 18-inch item, thereby enabling the customer to run Firestone Deluxe tires.
A reserved two-tone black and white paint job with gold pin striping tops the CB750 off nicely.
