Hi fellow CBXers,
I been pondering this for a minute, and would be keen on hearing your input on what the best way to tackle this is.
I have a stock 79 that I’ve wanting to give a make over and give it the classic earlier 70's look, with spoke wheels and a box swingarm and of course I want to go as wide as possible with the rubber. I was thinking I could take a pair of CB750F hubs 76 (spoke) and re-lace them to Excel rims, say (2.50) x 17" Front w/120 tire and (5.00) x 17" Rear w/160 tire on a 2" extended DRESDA Style Boxed Swing arm for a CB750F. I guesstimate the swing-arm pivot is about 10" across for both, is that about right? Will they fit? Also, any ideas on the front calipers matching up with a pair of CB750 rotors, since the CBX is a 5 bolt pattern and the CB750F hub is a 6 bolt or should I step down to the to a CB750 or GL1000 front-end? Or worst-case have Daniel from http://www.fishheadbigbrakes.com/
make a custom setup for the CBX front.
Thanks in advance and would love to hear your thoughts.
