Just bought a 77 CB750A basket case which is mostly there. Going to make it into a trike for my father as he has health issues that keep him from riding on 2 wheels. Going to be modded to bring the HP up a little. It's going to be a unique build and all the stuff that I take off will end up going for sale.
We're in Stamford, NY.

bought my first bike, which is a '78 CB750A.  $200. Not quite a basket case, but a non-runner.  Mechanicals are all there, seem in good shape and intact.  lots of parts in a box.  Sportster/peanut tank installed with a seat pan.

I figure wrench and learn over the upcoming winter, run this one after my saftey course, add a standard transmission CB750 in the summertime.

almost fifty years old and riding has always been on my bucket list.  Divorced the old lady I shoulda left 5 years ago, and now it's time.

Glad I found this site!

Hello

I have sold two of my Matics, the sidecar-Matic and the trike-Matic.
The buyers are very glad and happy with their Matics. ;D

Hey guys, recently bought a '77 CB750A in pretty darn good condition. I'm 27 and this is only my 2nd bike, first was a bobbed '97 Kawasaki Vulcan. I've fallen in love with old CB's lately. Not much of a mechanic, but definitely trying to get better and learn as much as I can from anyone willing to share knowledge.

I'm from Cambridge, NY and bought a '76a over the summer.  Has 5k original miles but I can't seem to get it to turn over.  I've removed the plugs and filled with marvels mystery oil.  I think that it may be something else, any ideas?

Try to turn the crank gently clockwise and counterclockwise. Does it move in either direction?

I'm near Lancaster, Pa. I bought my 76 750A around 2003. It has a little under 19k miles on it. I fixed some leaks, did some brake work, changed fork seals and cleaned the carbs. I haven't run it in a year or two and the carbs need overhauling before I try. I just need a motivation jump start. I have kept it registered and insured and the battery on a tender all this time.

In Huntsville, AL. Just purchased 2 identical 1977 hondamatics, hoping to get one of them as near mint stock condition as possible. Any advice is appreciated as this is my first time owning an antique bike.
