Ken Glenn Cycles CB 750 Café Racer

It was in Daytona and I rode it (did you say reverse shifting?). A nice and very clean piece even if you don’t road race from bars to bars. And the good surprise is that Ken Glenn can build you one for about $7,000. Can’t beat that. Here what you get: a stock chassis, CB 750 engine cleaned, painted with polished cases. Front tubes from Cycle X with shaved and polished top triple tree with MC enterprises air fork kit. New spoke front and rear wheels with polished rims and hubs. CS Marquis tires (19” front, 18” rear). A one-off oil tank. An exhaust NOS Manx 4 into 1 circa 1978. One-off front & rear fenders (Sportster taillight included). One-off gas tank and ¾ airing fabricated by Ken himself. Upside down shifting made in house, etc. KG Cycles

    Just another shining example of Ken’s super-clean 1970’s era cafe racers. And these are no garage furniture either. He rides one to all of our shows. Keep up the good work Ken.

    yes another fine example of ken’s superb craftsmanship and his passion for this industry. And don’t forget he lends his passion and knowledge to the Rat’s Hole shows as a judge too!

    What a gorgeous machine! I just bought an issue of Road Bike to see the bike closer. Looked on his website, but no mention was made of what ciy his shop is in. I have a CB350 given to me by a friend (now deceased) that I’d love to do along the lines of his bike. A true biker is hard to come across. Love that machine.

    So interesting how times and tastes have changed. Harley came out with the XLCR Cafe Racer in the 70s, considered to be Willie G.’s boldest design yet. The American market wasn’t quite ready for it, though, and it didn’t fly. It’s a pretty hot collector’s item now.
