Tex's Amen Saviour CB750/4...
Email received from Tex...

Tex here from the Gold Coast. Have been riding, restoring and building bikes for over 40 years now!

Attached is a pic of a Honda 750/4 in an Amen Saviour Frame which I put together in 1976. I went to the States and bought the frame, Mustang tank with flush mounted cap, seat, sissy bar, 2 into 1 turnouts, coil box etc, brought it all back as passenger luggage.

Registration Laws in Queensland in those days were pretty strict .... no rake, no extended forks etc etc, but I mnaged to sweet talk the girl at the Main Roads in Townsville and got it registered. The frame was moulded with good old Bondo around all welds and gussets. The bike won a trophy at the Dragoons Drag & Custom Show in Townsville in 1977.

I saw that one of your members (Podgy?), was putting together an Amen Saviour 750/4. He may be interested in the pic. Who knows, it may be my old bike!!??

I also have the American Motorcycle Engineering, Inc. Catalogue from that time with pictures and prices of all their products. I could photocopy it if required. I have a few other pics of the bike being built which I will scan and send if anyone is interested. They are a bit "Box Brownie" but may scan OK!

Like the site. And looking forward to a ride with some of the boys on 14 January.
Cheers
Tex.

G'day Tex, That's a classic photo of 70s style. Gotta love the bars and sissy bar to.

i wish we could still get some of the gear on that bike would save a lot of work,don't think it would be your old frame i have,it was yellow when i got it and it was frame only,with springs.
good looking bike from the past though
cheers podgy

I have sent Andrew a copy of the AMEN Catalogue from 1976. The prices will make you spew!! But you may get some ideas for fabrication etc.
