Bike of the Month Before

1979 Honda CB750K Turbo

Congratulations to Tom Miller of Chino for winning Bike of the Month with his 1979 Honda CB750K Turbo. Tom won a $15.00 gift certificate for Mr. Pete's Grill.

Tom is the President of TCI Products in Orange. TCI Products is a manufacturer of Dual Sport motorcycle accessories. You can find them online at: www.TCIProductsUSA.com.

Tom has owned the CB750 for two years. He bought it as a basket case the motor was siezed and the bike was in rough shape. The 14 month restoration and customization was done completely by Tom in his garage.

The engine is fitted with a customized Garrett T-25 Turbo. The draw through system includes both a custom intake manifold and header and is fed by a single Mikuni HSR 42 carburetor.

The suspension is set up with Performance Machine rear shocks and front springs.

CB400 wheels, customized gauge cluster, light and sectioned front fender show off Tom's own paint job. He admitted that although he fabricated the seat pan he did outsource the seat upolstery. I'm impressed by all his work.

Thanks Tom for bringing it to our meet. See all the photos in our March Gallery.
