As any Hot Shot Hip Kid, Snot Punk Wannabe, I also want a piece of the action! So of cause I needed my own Honda CB 750. It is a 1977 K7 CB 750, and I plan to re-build her over the next 2-3 years.
At the moment I am driving it almost every day. It needs a new clutch at some point, and its electric system is allergic to rain at the moment. Apart from that she purrs like a kitten.
With a dual disk brake conversion, black clubman bars, CB 750 Daytona or CB 450 race tank, race tail, belmouth intakes, a different exhaust, and rear sets, she will be a stunner!
Check out the progress on this blog from approximately September :)
Returning to Ghana I believed I needed a bit stronger bike, and switched the Sukida with a used Yamaha AG 100. The Yamaha was ideal for my needs at the time. Its was simple and economical, had a 98cc two stroke engine with autolube system and CDI ignition that meant no plug oiling or fewer moving parts. The last thing I needed was a high maintenance machine!
Out on the dirt roads it has an extra low first second and third gear spread that is perfect for low-speed crossing on foot paths on the savannah, while fourth and fifth gears provide enough top-end speed to get you from place to place with ease.
In less then 2½ month I did almost 5400 km on it.
Haven returned to Denmark, I was isolated at the hospital due to danger of me carrying disease from Ghanaian hospitals. After 3 weeks from the accident I was finally operated, and my leg was put back together with an Ilizarov system, and two internal screws. After 2½ month in hospital, I returned home and started training and rehabilitation. Nearly 6 month after the accident I was able to walk well enough to return to Ghana and finish my work. The two screws were later taken out, and I still keep them as a freakish souvenir.
