For the first time in a looong time I have no bike in the garage. Sold the bike this weekend. So now to find a CHEAP project to mess around with. Hopefully a 70's Honda CB or similar.

I've been thinking of that one because it's been on CL for a long time. I emailed 2 guys about an Amen rolling chassi today too.

John,
How hard / expensive would it be to get the front end and wheel and brakes for that 750?

Bob: you can still get just about anything you need and much of it NOS. Up until Soichiro Honda, died in 1995 I believe, Honda MoCo carried a commitment to continue making and providing parts for every model they ever made! Within years of his passing they shifted direction and started to gradually phase that practice out. Vic World, Mr. CB750, has the worlds greatest collection of CB 750 parts, and is one of the recognised foremost restorers of these machines. He specializes in the1969 "sandcast" origionals and has one displayed in Honda's own "Collection Hall" in Japan, and additionally another one at American Honda, with yet another at the Barber Motorsports Museum in Birmingham, Alabama. One of his finds is a 1969 with 428 origional miles on it and that one has become the measuring stick by which all his restoration are measured against. If you proceed and run into a parts issue that can't be resolved anywhere else be assured that contacting Vic at www.worldmotorcycles.com (http://www.worldmotorcycles.com) will get you satisfaction!

I think I emailed all of those guys already. LOL It's surprising how many people never email back.

I actually don't think I emailed that guy. It was a little too far from me. I'm talking to a guy right now about a KZ650. No kickstart (I wanted a kickstart for some reason) but it seems like a decent deal. I decided to go cafe style and not hardtail. As much as i love the looks of a ht and always wanted to do one, my backside would hate me.
