I found this 1966 Honda CB77 Superhawk very sad and incredibly neglected, rotting and partially dismantled on Whidby Island in Washington State. This is a very simple build for the most part. These bikes are quite beautiful and in my opinion, look great stock from the factory. But of course, I had to change a few things. I made the cafe seat from a spare CB77 fuel tank to continue the tank seam that runs down its middle. I felt that this helped to center the bike and give it a much more balanced feel. I absolutely love the CB77 ‘s early stock speedometer, so I simply tore it apart, cleaned it, rebuilt it and set the odometer back to zero. The frame was painted with a glossy black, single stage paint. All of the silver on the bike is actually raw oiled steel. I fully rebuilt the engine, boring two sizes up and crossing the transmission gearing for a smaller shifting ratio. This bike is perfect for cruising around town and jetting off on small trips.
