Between trying to keep updates for that, pulling in a new inventory system for the shop (PITA) and a briken collar bone this summer time has been hard to come by.

Glad it was a collar bone, not a cranium.

The TX750 was my 16YO Hooligan bike, GREAT wheelies, did the ton every damn time I got on it, first encounter(s) with State Police, etc. I found a neglected one at auction 3 years ago, everyone sneered and scoffed when I was the only bidder. But she's back to being reasonably presentable now.

Concours, if yours is a 73 , looks like you have the oil cooler and deep sump upgrade. I believe the 74 had those mods done at the factory.
Did you repaint yours or is that original paint ?
