Joel "Splitt" Splittgerber's "Kicking It"
.
The first big street bike that I ever rode was my neighbors CB750. I was 13 years old and I hadn't ridden anything larger than a 400 up to that time. Ever since then, I've always wanted to build a CB750 chopper.

I built this bike to capture the look of a late 70's bobber. So to keep this bike as period correct as possible, I tried to use as many used/NOS parts as I could. I decided to go with a hard tailed, stock frame, after not being able to locate a titled chopper frame. After I picked up a GME ribbed gas tank, I knew that ribbed fenders were the only way to go.

The paint job also had to be something that would look period correct, so no skulls or ghost flames on it. I decided that nothing says that classic racey look like scallops. For the colors, I decided on candy apple red and cream with a gold pin stripe to break it up.
