78 was a great year for the K model. I believe that is the same motor that was in the F1. You can drop an 810 kit in there and scare yourself silly.

F1 would have been 75, both the F1 and F2 were the old style SOHC motors. 77 and 78 were the revised motors so the F3 would have had roughly the same motor as the K8 did.

79 was the beginning of the DOHC era.

What did they revise in the '77 and '78 motors? I had a '78 750F and apart from black paint the motor looked identical to a '69 CB 750. The cv carbs were a more recent addition, but I don't remember any changes apart from that.



It was a dog. Heavy, slow and utterly vanilla in spite of the comstar wheels, four into one pipe and triple disc brakes...

The first F bike had the rear disc, boat-tail rear fender, the coffin tank, and the 4 into one. The engine had bigger valves and a hotter cam than the early K models, but looked exactly the same externally. In '78 the last edition of the SOHC K model had pretty much the same engine as the '75-'76 F model and the last F model was mostly just cosmetic changes with the Com-star wheels and a second front disc for '77-'78.

Heads were different in that the exhaust pipes mounted up differently on the 77 and 78, that and carbs, frames, body work, front brakes, forks.

Quite a few changes for the K7, K8, and F3. I think the F1 and F2 were the same head and the K's from K0 to K6, ie different exhaust mountings.

There's a thread on these somewhere on this forum.

Got bitten by the nostalgia bug...

Back in the early 80s, in a previous life, I used to ride an R80RT for Avon & Somerset Constabulary...





I saw an 1983 R80RT for sale on UKGSer. I kept on coming back to the advert. I went to see it on Saturday and got within 50 of a deal but couldn't agree. I slept on it and agreed a price over the 'phone the next day. I picked it up on Wednesday, but this afternoon was the first opportunity to take it out for a ride...














It's mechanically nicely sorted and rides beautifully. The cosmetics are a bit scruffy (they look much better in these pics than they are). In the medium term, a respray is on the cards - as soon as I can find someone that can paint and pinstripe it without requiring one of my kidneys in exchange.

I'm thinking it would look nice in white...
