The 750: CB750 Cafe Racer by Strapped MFG

Honda CB750 Cafe Racer

Today, we are thrilled to showcase this ’74 Honda CB750 by Jordan Wiseley of the newly-launched Strapped Mfg Co., located in Los Angeles.  So many of our favorite bikes are built by racers, and “The 750” is no exception.

Jordan was born and raised in Oklahoma, and he’s been racing since he was 9. At 12, he placed in the top 5 in the OK State 85cc novice class.  He ran in the 125/250f Intermediate Classes through high school, learning most of his skills from chasing Travis Pastrana and Robby Reynard and others of that crew around Kenny Bartram’s ranch in Stillwater, OK.  What’s incredible about this is that Jordan was born without his left hand!


Jordan still rides Moto and Supermoto today on board a ’10 Yamaha 450f. He launched Strapped Mfg Co. recently, a moto-lifestyle brand. This CB750 restomod/cafe racer, along with a ’72 CB350 Scrambler, are his first builds under the new brand. You can follow Strapped Mfg on Facebook and/or Instagram.

Below, Jordan gives us the full story on the build.

“The 750”:  In the Builder’s Words

CB750 Cafe Racer

(Words by Jordan Wiseley.  Highlights by us.)

I’ve been racing for a long time and really wanted this CB750 to have that modern-performance look while maintaining the class and nostalgia.


I threw on an ’08 Gsxr750 front end and raised the front wheel size by an inch to 19″. Had to grab a new hub to keep the spokes and hand made the front fender and struts to catch those puddle sprays. The larger fork tubes took a bunch of turn radius so I cut and welded “tank dents” to get a total of 2 inches back.


Opted for a smaller, more sleek front lamp with the new switch letting you run just the halo to add some extra modern touch. Relocated all of the bar switches to the the top tree to simplify (and everyone likes flipping toggles like a pilot).


Hand made the side panels out of perforated steel and the license plate mount to match. Chopped the ass end and made a fender to compliment the tank and seat curve. Moved the rear-sets back and fabbed an old-school looking shorty from a cocktail muffler. Then put a ton of hours into getting the paint just the way I wanted it. Really stoked to be ripping this thing that started as an idea in my head! Looking to put it to auction soon!! (If I can stop ripping long enough). Thank you guys for reading.
