Has anybody purchased & fitted the above from Ebay - usually for late 70's early 80's 750.

Look at the back of the pieces and compare to pricier tanks.
They are reasonable price wise.

India gets a bad rap.

So for some perspective - here's a couple things that come from India we can all appreciate.  Aside from amazing cuisine and religious art.

- the most educated young tech professionals in the world
- billions of dollars worth of electronics, textiles, and jewelery
- j.b. pharmaceuticals
- iisco metals
- royal enfield motorcycles

I do not personally have one, but I have read numerous reviews and they are uniformly favorable. If I wanted to build a café bike with that kind of tank and budget mattered (and in my case it would) then I would not be afraid to try one.

I think you mean the cheapest tech professionals.
I think you bought into the Kool-Aid the tech companies keep crying about not having infinite HB1 visas at their disposal.
There are plenty of well-educated tech people born and raised in the states. They just come at a cost most companies would love to cut with cheap foreign labor.

I believe that falls under the category of cuisine he mentions in the top sentence.

Probably analogous to driving a truck for a living. Not exactly "labour" is it, Dave? More like, pedal pushing and wheel turning...  ;)

I know yours was a twist on the label of "labor" used for employment of a workforce in lieu of the mighty, bronzed Adonis sledge hammer-wielding men who built railroads and bridges and did manly jobs at great peril and without comfort. Oh, the good old days-

Currency exchange rates don't necessarily cheapen the quality of an individuals work. 

Consider the japanese yen.  112 jp¥ to each $1us.  Yet sony and honda are respected household names.

The information I stated is not from a tech company mook.  It's from an international survey of post-secondary education.  Indian schools held a higher ranking than the US colleges.  With and without consideration of government subsidy.
The billion$ worth of indian tech exports speak for themselves.
