Honda CBX1000 Carbon Fibre (fiber) Fuel Injection project – Update

Latest update on the CBX fuel injection project.  Most of the hardware components has now arrived , see photo below.

Just need some time to start machining injector bosses, fuel rails, MAP take off nipples and the butterfly shaft housings that will all need to be bonded to the carbon injector bodies.

Once the components are fitted/bonded and the surface finish of the bodies is complete then the 2 x banks of 3 TB’s will need to be also bonded together.

Honda CBX1000 – Fuel Injection Project

(with one piece carbon fibre (fiber) injector bodies)

Step 1: Design on CAD the desired trumpet shape with appropriate taper and length

Step 2: in the absence of a CNC machine I printed the CAD drawing 1:1 scale and marked of the dimension at 10mm intervals and marked them on the 76mm dia Alloy round bar stock ready for machining.

 

 

Step 3: due to the small size and age on my lathe the process of machining and then subsequent hand finishing and polishing took some 8hrs of machine time.

 

 

 

Step 4: Cut and lay up the carbon fibre sock material over the mandrel. ( sorry can’t show you all the ticks to the process )

 

Step 5: Wet lay the resin into the carbon and let cure.

 

Step 6: Part the Carbon piece from the mandrel and … Read More »

1981 Honda CB750 Brat Racer (The Green One)  

 

 

Story

This is the second of the pair of Honda CB750 Brat racers destined for Dubai, again the design would be heavily influenced by the work of the Wrenchmonkees of Denmark and CRD  in Spain.

This time around the chosen donor bike was a 1981 Honda CB750 FB .

The design of this bike was to be black, black and some more black with a splash of colour and WOW did that work for this bike!

 

Owner:  Dubai

Specs: 1981 Honda CB750 FB

Frame: chopped, braced and re-shapped in-house. Basically we chopped the tail off, re-positioned the seat frame rail,      braced the back of  the frame hoop and raised the back of the tank by about 2.5inches to straighten out the lines of the bike from commuter/cruiser to racer.  The frame was completely stripped, … Read More »

Story

It is not often you get the chance to build 2 similar bikes side by side for essentially the same customer, but that is what happened and this is one of the pair to are destined for Dubai in the United Arab Emerites.  The project started out with  a brief and a couple of couple photos the style of bike the customer wanted.  The design would be heavily influenced by the work of the Wrenchmonkees of Denmark and CRD  in Spain.

As the customer was in another country the brief also included sourcing the donor bike on which to build.  The bike chosen was a 1980 Honda CB750 FA in very good condition.  It is my belief that it is really a false economy to by a “junker” as the base … Read More »
