A 1993 Honda CB750 Nighthawk custom. Referred to as a “convertible” because of a special feature allowing the seat to be lengthened from a solo seat to one long enough to take a passenger along. The entire rear frame was rebuilt and a custom seat and tail added. A 70’s CB750K tank was fitted with a paint scheme borrowing from mid 70’s CB360 tanks. The front forks and brakes are from a Yamaha R1.
  The tank sheet metal lines were continued into the tail section. Renthal bars, Shinko tires.

 The donor bike was found in Denver, and had already had the R1 fork conversion as well as a Walking Dead tribute styling. The 1993 CB750 Nighthawk rear frame said: “cruiser,” and had to be dealt with. A new top tube for the rear frame was formed from DOM steel tubing, and the lower members repositioned higher and slightly forward to meet up with it. The passenger peg mounts were traded for some smaller ones.

  James is so cool he has two nicknames. The inscription is hidden inside the battery box.
