    .... and then I can go and frighten the MOT man with the 750. Mind you,
    I probably should try to bleed the brakes again but surprisingly every
    thing else works.

    Mind ewe, the oil filter was old enough to qualify for the Antiques

    Anyone in the market for a UK model CB750/4 K2?

    could be interested in any spare bits and bobs though. I'm currently
    restoring me CB750F2SS.

  4. Not that many common parts, surely, apart from things unlikely to need

    SS? Is that the Seeley one?

    No *useable* bits & bobs left over, sorry.

    I know someone who has let the sun go to his head, and contemplating getting
    a SOB (1).

    Are these any good, and what sort of money?

    (1) Of course if he does, it'll then piss down non-stop right through until

    That I wouldn't know mate. SS stands for Supersport AFAIK.
    And i'm restoring her because a few years ago, well 6 to be exact, the
    conrod decided to take a holiday from piston #1 and shot through the
    crankcase. And i've _finally_ decided to get me finger out and sort it out.
    Still got the gasket set I got from David Silver Spares with a receipt dated
    1997 stapled to it!

    Managed to get a spare engine for £100 from that SOB shop down by the
    Lombard roundabout in Croydon about 3 or 4 years ago. So now its just a
    matter of stripping down the original engine, seeing what's shagged (apart
    from the obvious) and replacing it with that from the spare. And BTW
    unfortunately, before I took ownership of the bike some brainless numpty
    ratted it and removed the rear section of the tail. There's some pics of it
    on me website

    Which brings me to ask you a question Old Boy: I've taken note of the engine
    numbers and frame number, and wondered how i would go about identifying the
    model number and year. Would it be alright to post that kind of thing here
    and ask for your expertise?

    Removed as in 'chopped off the plastic' or worse?
    Alternatively just email them to me (to the 'other' address, not 'Timo
    @ Work') - I've got some CB750 reference material at home that lists
    engine and frame numbers.

    But from the pics it looks like a bog standard F2 to me.

    They're basically the original Japanese big bike, hugely reliable if
    looked after but with all the features of a proper 1970s Japanese

    I reckon something between 1600-1800 would be an acceptable price but
    I'll probably consider non-piss taking offers. That is, *if* I'll sell
    it. Not quite sure about this yet.

    [1] Bendy frame and shit brakes.

  12. My CB550 is up for grabs, for ukp900, if anyone's interested. better
    bike than the 750, too. And this one is very *very* clean and
