Eek TX750 coming out of the boneyard

I picked up a very ratty 1973 TX750 out of the junk yard last fall. Someone had given it a funky rat / cafe treatment sometime in the past and it had a cool rusty look to it so I stuck it in the window at the shop. Things slowed down over the last couple days so I put in on the lift to see what would happen. Cleaned the carbs, checked the timing and threw on an aux tank. Wiring was hacked so I put 12v straight to the coil. Scared the cramp out of me when it actually fired up and ran.

I think it has the extended oil sump and I'll check for the hole at the points case (no evidence of oil though). I'm hoping to find the adjustable chain for the balancer. I really didn't expect it to run so now I'll look a bit more carefully. It should be a fun shop bike
