That's really great news, now all that needs to happen is for the *******s to be caught and strung up.

Very pleased for you and glad damage minimal.
One day I'll have the time to restore it, not just talk and dream....

I have a couple of the gauge mounting brackets. I know they are CB750 ones but which ones I know not!

If you post an image I can check. Must have taken some effort to bend those lugs.

Great news, but how. There must be a story behind it.

Police were doing their rounds about 12:30 (midnite), saw these lads next to my bike & part way through nicking another bike and ran off before police could pursue ... they made sure they secured bike then got recovery to pick it up ... all the people I dealt with thought the theives were stupid & didn't know what they had! Slowly pulling bits off ... got to the bottom of their hot wire & busted seat ... more later ...I'm getting hassled to have lunch!!!

The gauge bracket is fine but the top yoke I think was bent when they butchered the ignition lock... the gauges now interfere with end of brake master cylinder line. Thanks for the kind thoughts anyway...

Does anyone know if there any difference between the top yolks on the F1 and F2.

It would seem they are the same diameter at 35mm.
