34K speedo - slightly but just enuf cafed
Those CB's bring back some memories - cut my teeth on one in the mid 80's.
Saw this old scoot up at Iron Horse a fe weeks ago.
SK, could you give us some details on this bike?
Who makes the girder?...stock?
Love this site and everything on it but gotta admit to being a Harley tragic. Love the Black pan - that is sweet. Find this one interesting too - WL with pommy gearbox & peanut tank amongst other mods. That would be a fun toy . .
Oh, shit, that bike would be fun.^^ And you know it sounds great.
Nearly all original... my project bike last year.
Nice, that was my first street bike -
At the time I semi cafe'd it - put low super bars on, removed the 30lbs of chrome racks and sissy bars, and added a cheap bullet fairing.
(sold it just the way it looked for $450 kick myself now)
Since we seem to be on the topic of CB750s here's my project for the winter. First big snowfall today so I'll soon be working on it.
It's a 1978. It's hasn't run for 11 years but it looks to be all there and in OK shape.Only $100. I think I'm going to do a stock restore on this one. My first CB750 turned into more of a custom bobber.
Hey guys, nice 550's!
Here is my cb500 taken when I was 16 years old or so (~1977). I think this tire smoke shot is in the high school parking lot befor the drivers education class! Thats my Bell Magnum motocross setup... the jacket is a Schott. A little too big then but way too small for me now,haha! It was either full throttle or full brakes. I traded it sometime later for a 400 Maico Magnum.
Cool vintage shot
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.
Robke... I must compliment you on your fantastic taste in motorcycles!
