  • CB750K2 - My New Bike

    Well this took alot longer than expected.

    Here's a picture of the ol'girl all shiny and new.

    Got a bit of an issue balancing the carby, so if anyone has any tips on this or would like to show me over a beer, would greatly appreciate any advice anyone has on this model.

      is this going to be a sweet reverse build where we get to see you crash everything off it?

            Worst troll ever. At least [MENTION=27121]Gippo[/MENTION] has developed some subtlety.

              Thanks for buying this. I was drooling every day on Gumtree. Building a house so wifey would have killed me. Enjoy it. It looks mint.

                Very nice. I used to synchronize carbies using a long fuel hose, like a stethoscope, you put one end near you ear and the other end near the intake, listen to each one and adjust until they all have the same sound.

                        make a good coffee table till you get the carbs done.

                          Good to see you're still with us and in one piece.
                          Why is this a project bike? Besides the carbs, I don't see anything to do on this bike. IT IS MINT! Even the paint looks brand new. Or is this the after pic?
                          If you love your motorcycle, set it free. If it comes back, you probably high-sided.

                            Hi Guys,

                            Thanks for the comments

                            This bike has quite a bit of history

                            It's been one only owner. This is the after picture [MENTION=24890]SilentBob[/MENTION] and was a 5 year rebuild which actually belonged to my father - inwhich I'm now the owner

                            Theres a few things that need to be added/changed but as [MENTION=8418]potato[/MENTION] mentioned it's quite a good coffee table

                            Need to get a new battery, balance the carbs and then it should be good to go. Will hopefully have this done over the weekend, and I'll be able to take it for a putt around town.

                            Will be good to slowdown a bit =)

                              find the best carb guy in town and pay to get it done properly.Once.There'll be a heap of little things he'll pick up that you won't notice.
