1976 Honda CB750 from Lossa Engineering

I’ve posted several Lossa Engineering bikes in the past, and this is probably my least favorite of the ones that have been auctioned off on eBay. Overall, it is a nicely done cafe racer of sorts, but I think the style just isn’t my cup of tea.

Likes: I love all the detail work on the mechanicals. The drilled sprocket cover and shifter are a great touch. The double front discs are well done. The exhaust is unique and cool looking. The street tracker tail section is always nice to see, and I like the dual taillight treatment. And all the powder coating and nickel plating looks really good.

Dislikes: The upside down superbike bars. The paint job (personal taste, ymmv). That funky sprocket cover on the rear wheel. And the Pirelli Scorpion A/T tires (I had them on my KTM :-/ ).

There are lots more pictures and more info on the build and parts on eBay if you’re interested. I doubt this bike is going to meet reserve, though, as there are only 20 hours left and the price is only about $2K at this time. I think if you look at some of the other Lossa bikes that I’ve posted or on their website, you’ll see that this CB750 is a bit different in direction from most of the other bikes to come out of the shop. I’m sure this one will find a home, but it might not be quite as easy as with a more classically-styled builds…

35mm Tommaselli Clip-Ons

This is a nice pair of original Tommaselli clip-ons sized at 35mm. I would buy them for the SL350 project I have coming up soon, but I have no money for things such as this. 😦

Condition looks used, and I included the blurry picture from the listing just to show the Tommaselli logo. If you aren’t building up a concours-level cafe racer build, these are probably just the ticket. There’s also a steering damper bracket included in the auction, but 37mm seems like it won’t fit most of the bikes we might convert to cafe status. FYI, shipping is $14…
