I built 8 different CB750 customs over the years. Some were mostly cosmetics, but three of them were full-on choppers, with the frame cut and re-configured. The SOHC 750 Honda was my favorite bike ever. I rode one from Ket West to Colorado and a different one from New Mexico to Cape Cod and Back, with no maintenance needed other than tightening the chain.

You and me both Bob, I have been close to buying one a few times but realized I have a higher life expectancy if I stay on 4 wheels. So I bought a roadster

A few years back I nearly bought a CB750, but the cost of them up here was crazy then and it has done nothing but increase.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Here is the 72 Moto Guzzi 850. Been 40 years this summer since I fired it up. Maybe it's time.

Thanks guys. Got this thing about hanging on to stuff.
We did mains and rods just before I parked it. Has spent all time inside except for a summer. Cylinders have a chrome lining. Been reading that the chrome delaminates with time. Figure on pulling the cylinders for a look.
