Sorry to hear the bad news, not much to add to what others have already said. I'll keep my eyes open at the Kempton park jumbles.  They must have been watching you at some point.

The best advice I was given by the police was never to wash your bike outside the front of your own house. Bike thieves are well organised and travel around by car on sunny days and Sundays knowing bikes will be parked outside houses. When they see a bike being washed outside a house they know that's were it lives and come back later to steal it.

Another ruse thieves use is to drive to bike meets, shows and jumbles, pick out a bike they like, wait for the owner to return to the bike and then follow the unsuspecting owner home and come back later to steal it. It happened to a guy who rode his BSA RGS to Kempton Park a few years ago.

I hope you get it back, SOHC 750's are not the type of bike you see being ridden every day.

 Thanks once again for all your words & comisseration(?).
I have sourced anew project if the yellow peril doesnt turn up, but sadly its a CB900FD rather than a 750 sohc ... anyone know a decent forum for those bikes? My aim will be to get it as good condition as my F1 was...

The bike Im looking at is basically blue colour. 1983. Updated comstars with lets say hole pattern in pressings rather than earlier slot type pattern (if that makes sense?)

Sorry to hear about the theft - seems nothing is safe.
CB900fd is a lovely bike - got one in the shed waiting to be done.
Join the CB1100.net site - absolute wealth of knowledge and really helpful guys mainly US based but have answers to literally any query on these bikes 750, 900 and 1100. I restored an 1100 and found the site invaluable.

Thanks Andy ... that helps pick me up ... something to look forward to ... early days yet ... I dont have lots of money so need to wait till insurance is sorted ... you never know bike may turn up ... but still feel violated ... maybe if that does happen perhaps I should hand it over to someone else who can look after it better. Maybe the 900 being that bit newer will be less sought after???

Good news! I have bike back with minimal damage .... one thing they have done to break ignition lock is to bend instrument dial mounting lugs on top tripple clamp. Dont fancy trying to bend them back ... does anyone know if part ending in 305 is interchangeable with part ending in 010? No doubt more questions to come! :)
