Hi does anyone know the 750 on ebay advertised by Misterflump.

They seem to have some mint bikes at good prices - in my opinion

Come on guys, lets see if we can help out here - there's far more expert members on here on the 750. Looks a decent bike for the price but would want to hear it running before commiting to that sort of price. Are you far away from the seller.
Other members will be able to identify authenticity of right parts for the K6 from the pictures I think

I have had a bike from him in the past, the guy's a gentleman, he is not a dealer but a collector.
Can't get to see bike online at present due to sporadic Internet connection, but I found that he will answer any query, he used to do walk round videos as well.

Like most bikes make sure you ask the right  questions.

I'd request a video of the bike running (then post on here for a second opinion if your not sure)
Check if rims are original DID (2nd best is modern DID repo's) - I note that the carb top rubber boots are missing, master cylinder boot missing and 52000 miles may require cam chain/primary chain replacement if not done (if so, is there proof?)
That's just a quick look before I'm off out - can anyone else spot anything?

Looks like USA import as suspected (rear light, indicators, bar height etc) reasonably well prepared.

To add to the above observations;- chrome doesn't look bad but appears cleaned as opposed to re chrome (see nooks and crannies around weld joints etc. Rear tire probably needed shorter term (no direct view of centre but appears 1/2 worn) 52,000 isn't really a problem if honest, but you need to hear it running, chains "should be ok" at that mileage if oiled properly, blueing on some downpipes that suggest uneven carburettor setting (maybe in the past but some don't like that ) I'd want to see inside the final drive chain cover to check for damage (from chain break) to make sure it's not been hidden, also check what ignition it's running. Looking along the wheels to check for frame misalignment too is worthwhile.

These are all general things that need to be accounted for, that's on any bike but detail for 750 here. Difficult to answer remotely but seems to be all there and not a nuts deal (either too expensive or cheap) and seems worthwhile considering the age.

You must look past the bling  ;)  Overpriced for a USA K6, with that many miles on, it will have all the engine rubbers hard and the tensioner wheels gone brittle, unless they have all been changed .
Switch gear is faded along with M/C. Foot pegs on the wong way round and to fit them like that it, is worth checking that the rear locating plates have not been ground off. Can not see a engine breather pipe bracket or pipe. And a lot of pitted chrome on all the bolts.

For any bike like this you need to see it up close and personal, test ride it and check things like the inside of tank and have a long check list.

Crikey Trig you've got eyes like a shit house rat. ;D  Looks like an older restoration that's had a recent tart up. The decals on the tank are not quite right on the left hand side. Also, it's not been running well as the header pipes are blued to death. At that price I would stay away.

You took some prompting Graham - it was you that I was trying to get involved to assess the detail!

Thanks for the replies, I'm out the country at the moment with work so can't view it. He sent a clip via WhatsApp  so I can't copy it and put on here. It was a ride past so didn't hear it ticking over.
Think I'll pass.
Cheers.
