They should give me a finder's fee for bringing new members.

I'm gonna have to remember this; if you want to really bring traffic to a site, complain about it somewhere else!

Nice to see you guys here, ron and hoof.

Does this count?

Is this vintage enough? or no? It's not so much an adventure bike yet, but this bike is donating all it's parts to a future year-round Canadian winter bike... And yes, it's a ratbike, for some reason, all my bikes end up looking like this, and most 'em start out looking like this too (I've never paid more than $700.00 for a bike )

Vintage enough yes. 750 Honda's have been around almost 40 years now... and all project bikes start from somewhere. In recent years a few nicely restored examples have surfaced as the bike rightly takes its place among the most famous and important of motorcycle designs.

I'm not a "restoration" guy... I'm a scrapyard miner... bikes built out of parts that fit. Cheap and rideable is about all I care about, reliaablity comes a very close third, but If I have a rider that needs consant wrenching, I'm ok with that too.

A friend has that same model (82?) and has been under a cover since 92. I'm first on the list when he decides to get rid of it.

I had a black 80 model, my first big bike, sweet.

I have one, just like that, in pieces in my garage. Factory sport control kit and stock exhaust too.

When the airhead's done, it'll be time for the CB.

Oh - in the picture, those chrome gizmos on the side of the airbox should be black. Those covers are from a CB750/900C or 750SC, I believe. And he's missing the chrome rails that run from the shock mount to the little notch under the lower edge of the rear seat plastic.
