That's sad, it must have been someone's pride and joy at one time, though it is good that you have rescued it.

Cheers

I would take the K0 reflectors off the fairing before trying to sell it, worth a few bob these days  ;)

Was alcohol involved?  ;)

Having bought a basket case previously I stayed well clear but noticed it popped up in the various CB750 searches I randomly have running on ebay constantly

Interesting, looks like a big bore kit on it, looks like the "New" idea in the 70's of Teflon plugs as opposed to circlips in the pistons, maybe it's just the photo though. Not going to be a cheap resto, but I will follow with great interest! 
If it's got tits or wheels, it's hassle, if it's got both, RUN!!!

I reckon that’s a decent buy Paul well done. What are your plans for it - concourse restoration?
