So far: re­paint in 1979 colours What’s next: a new ex­haust

In 1979 I worked in a Honda deal­ers in Brack­ley and built the first one of these that I owned (CB900FZ) from the de­liv­ery crate, so for this one I got an­other tank, front mud­guard, tail unit and side pan­els and had Dream Ma­chine re­spray them in Tan­zan­ite Blue.

I’m not a purist, and have as­sem­bled, shall we say, a CB900FZD – a homage to the breed from ’79-’83. At least this ver­sion has brakes that are al­most ef­fec­tive. Next is a new ex­haust sys­tem mounted on orig­i­nal rear brack­ets – any PS readers got one they wish to part with?

Mixed and matched 900F with brakes that work. Nice job
