Simple - what do you have - any mods - and where are you?

1977 CB750A. Upgrades: Installed 41a cam, removed the 26 mm carbs and installed 28 mm round top Keihin's with 28 mm runners. Upgraded the ignition to a Dyna 2000. The bike was bought at an auction and had several issues. The starter gear on the starter clutch was worn badly and had to be replaced. The parking brake had to be rebuilt. Heck I did not know why the brake was even there until I started the bike up and went into the house to get my helmet and found the bike laying on it's side. OOps! When I got the bike I could hardly make it to 85mph. Now with upgrades and a bit of tuning it will go perhaps to 110mph. Not a bad investment but a bit strange to ride. Hardly any engine breaking which is a bit of a trip.

Hello , new to the forum .
 I have 2 , CB750A's of which I've included pictures of .
 My first 750A is a 1978 with several modifications , lower super bike handle bars , smaller Honda turn signals front and rear . The bike was basically a farm bike in need of a lot of cosmetic attention and a small amount of mechanical work .
530 chain & gear replacement , carb dismantle and cleaning and general engine tune-up . Also rebuilt the master cyl. and caliper .
The orange tank and side covers are from my 2nd 750 A and a lot of polishing of the aluminum and chrome parts . All told ,I have about 150 hours in the bike .
My second bike is a 1977 750 A . This was supposed to be a parts bike but it was a very complete running bike . Haven't done much to it yet but I did install the tank and side covers I'd painted for my first bike . It also will need a lot of attention to the chrome and aluminum but all in all a much nice bike to start with verses the 1978 .
I have installed earlier round top K carbs and have an F motor that I'll use the head and cam from .

I recently purchased a 1977 CB750A, the bike came to me almost perfect with 17000 miles on it. I've put lower bars on the bike and a little windshield. Plan to install a set of hard bags and a vintage batwing. Nova Scotia Canada.

I have two 1977 CB750A Hondamatics, they were both imported from USA.
They are both on full Queensland rego, not club rego.
The blue one is completely original unrestored perfect condition except for the exhaust which is the MAC 4 into 2. I love this one the best and so smooth to ride.
The maroon one is a bit sluggish in comparison but I have just bought a genuine Yoshimura 812 kit to suit SOHC F models including Yoshi valve springs and Yoshi Daytona cam. All new in box. I have found new Yoshi 32mm carbs and will order them next week ( waiting for payday, they are $2500 plus freight from Japan).
I am currently looking for 1978 F2 head for this project.
The Yoshi pipe isn't available until late September and I will get that also.
I realise that the auto requires lots of low down torque but I have some tricks I will experiment with to allow the high RPM power come in without delay.
I live in good old Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia.
Can't wait for the Yoshimatic to hit the road.
Cheers,
Mick

Hi All:
I own Two 1977 750A's. Since they only made the Two colors...Red and Blue, I have one of each. They are both in my storage area so the pic's are not the best...They both run fine, The red has 8,014 miles and the blue has 12,885. Nice bikes. I still get people trying to figure out how I shift the bike without clutching ;)
I use my 2004 Suzuki 1500 Intruder (nick named 'Thumper') the most but get the other 2 out every now and then. :D

1972 CB750 K2/3 bitsa. Got it on the road as a rebuild of a bunch of parts. It drenched my left boot in oil. Leaking from between the head and the barrels near #1. Smokes from the exhaust. Only runs on 2 & 3. Possibly dodgy points.

Howdy, lurker since dec 14 when i picked up 76 hondamatic in portland.  Had pacifico fairing... Gone. Has tow hitch, rigid bags, goldwing coils, ghetto attempt at reupholstering seat, suzuki gs750 forks, brakes, front wheel. Also another complete motor minus carbs, another partial motor.

I only felt it proper to introduce myself because over the next few days ill be posting questions in preparation for over haul of the spare....

This is Dottie Mae named after my beloved 14yr old pit bull that died April 2014. It's a 77 750matic I bought for $1500 last October, currently in the hands of and ol skool honda guy getting her road worthy and replacing worn cables and such. This is my 1st bike owned but not ridden and wanted something differnt from the norm to put my style to it. My vision is a classic/cafe, plan on swapping out the front fairing for different style and go from there. Already installed clubman bars from the original and have a pair of 17" blk reverse cone Dime city cycles slip ons which I currently have to figure out a modification to them as even with the reducers they're not tightening only binding up at the end. Hope to post more pics as things progress.

Hi y'all. My 1st Honda, wanted something way different found it locally with a 1978 CB750A. It has been in storage, a challenge to get it running, needs a tune up. 5K original miles. The mods I notice as I got it are VW resonators in place of original exhaust...sounds cool. Missing parts are the park brake cable. The saddle needs replacing/recovering. Needs a bit of work, new tires. Frisco TX area.
