I reckon that’s a decent buy Paul well done. What are your plans for it - concourse restoration?
Hopefull James.
There are a hell of a lot more bits in with it just put those pictures on for a starter.

Lot of work Paul but as you have previously proved - doable. Its actually very similar to the way my K2 came but without the fairing and mine where bare crankcases.
Whats the  bellmouths like as I'm on the lookout for some for the CR rep - if your not using them

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
;D ;D It,s not as bad as my 400/4 was and look at that now :D

Show us a pic of your 400/4 before and after pics  ;)

Another one to the clan CB750 K1 even though I really do not have any room.
Why do we do it (this one is all your fault Trigger ;) ;D)
We all blame Trig for everything, poor old boy  ;D ;D ;D
I'm really pleased you ended up with it Paul. Good luck with it, you will have fun restoring it
In this case Julie it's true ;D ;D

Yes, it is true Paul. Either you or Trig was going to end up with it but, as your need was greater on this occasion, he let you win  ;D ;D ;D
Im a Nurse, trust me, this won't hurt.....much !!!

I will tell him but what with inflation, storage charges and interest, It's now £32.99 but you can buy it back if you wish  ;D ;D ;D

Still can't find out what those wheels are, any other members have any idea ?
Any markings on them Paul.

And fitted to CB750's.... Click if anyone would like to fit a set ££££££  8)

Personally, if building a nice usable but not concourse bike I would keep them as they are period goodies.
