CB750 / UK CB750K2 that is not right
« on: October 18, 2020, 08:51:59 AM »
The CB750 K2 UK unit is a lovely bike but, at this price it should be totally correct .

1) Wrong forks
2) wrong brake arm
3) wrong front mudguard
4) Wrong L/H switch gear
5) R/H switch looks wrong but, can't see properly
6) No Sprocket cover
9) Aftermarket clutch lever
10) Most fasteners are wrong
11) And most properly more

Buyer beware !

Misc / Open / Restoration or something shite
« on: October 17, 2020, 06:08:40 PM »
I have always said, that there is restoration and then there is restoration  ??? If someone is going to restore a bike to original condition it, should look like a original bike. And of some weird reason this seller thinks he has done a top job.

I came across this heap while keeping me eye out for very rare CD250 parts which for some strange reason i like to collect  ;)

CB750 / CB750K6 Parts list
« on: October 13, 2020, 02:22:38 PM »
Anyone out in SOHC land have a CB750K6 parts book. Looking for the part number for the bottom yoke.
The K6 has a unique bottom yoke that has a different housing for the steering lock and can't find the P/N anywhere.

CB500/550 / Diode problem maybe
« on: September 11, 2020, 09:07:43 AM »
I have been going through some stock bike that need to be ready and put up for sale.  Pulled a CB550F2 UK bike out and linked it up to a battery, everything works apart from the starter motor will not turn over. Changed the solenoid 3 times and still nothing  >:( Then i clicked that this unit has the clutch operated switch , Pulled the clutch lever and pressed the start button and the solenoid and starter motor are fine. So what we have is the neutral light is on and will go out when selecting gears but, still have to pull the clutch lever to get the solenoid to engage.

Had a look at the wiring diagram and it points out that it has a diode. The problem is i can't find any such diode or even the wires for a diode.

Help needed as I am shite at wiring  :o

CB500/550 / Warranty engine
« on: November 06, 2019, 08:15:43 AM »
There was only two ways that I know to get a full engine like this, >>>

1) It was a warranty claim unit that came from Honda because the original engine fitted was faulty and this could be the faulty unit put back in the crate and Honda never asked for it back.

2) It is a warranty claim engine that came from Honda to replace a faulty unit that was never fitted.

A big gamble and a lot of $$$

CB750 / Would you buy this engine ?
« on: November 04, 2019, 07:21:12 AM »

I can see chain damage and the top and bottom cases maybe welded together, see blue shite on the crank case surfaces  :o

Misc / Open / Indicator lens ID
« on: October 31, 2019, 10:18:42 PM »
Was having a clear out and found a Stanley Honda indicator lens which I think is off a CB750F2 or a CB400F1/F2 USA. It is in a packet but, lost the part number.
On the lens is STANLEY 045 6779 SAE14. Anyone ID this ?

Project Board / Lets build a SOHC for less than a grand
« on: October 19, 2019, 08:59:42 PM »
Hi, I am new to the project board and have built too many bikes but, never put a build tread up  :o

I have a agreement with the lady of the house that, we can not buy anymore bikes but, no mention of building any  ;)
I always read about how much these bikes cost to build and I know from first hand experience that they are not getting cheaper so, I have set myself a challenge to build one for less than £1000. Not sure if this is possible but, we will try.

Have got hold of a 500 four frame and have been donated a 550 engine, 500 hubs, 550 forks, 550 carbs, 550F1 tank ( thank you to all the members that have donated) and will be using parts from my stash that will need refurbing.

I will not be using any CAD or special tech stuff, it will be a tape measure, Vernier and cutting out bits of carboard to make templates.
I will not be using pods, clip on bars or any hi-tech electrics. 

I have stripped down the engine that was donated by a member who got it off another member and had been fully rebuilt using youtube vids  :o. The engine had about £500 of new parts fitted but, the builder had used silicone which had blocked the oil ways and destroyed the crank. But, a few £££ goodies can be reused like, the primary chain.

Today i started chopping the frame and putting a hoop on and trying a few parts out.
