Tuna started out as an abandoned cb750, a pocket full of cash, a very trusting local dude, and my delusions of grandeur.
Julien approached FingersCrossed about commissioning a build with a budget that was healthy enough for us to get creative, and I had been wanting to do a single sided swingarm build for a while once Classified Moto’s builds started popping up on the scene. (Huge shout out to the guys down there).
The basic idea was to make this 99-00 Cb750 nighthawk look as close to a lofty OEM concept as possible. Sourcing the swingarm from a VFR800 and front end from a gsxr1000 was the easy part. Having to essentially fabricate ¾ of the frame to accompany the mounting, and CNC a new triple were a little more challenging.
At finish, it was totally worth it. She absolutely rips. Julien is happy. FingersCrossed is happy.
