Well at least those 2 bolts look untouched. No rigging inside.
As of today 3/13/2012 my original owner 75 CB750F has made it through 3 wives, er EX-wives. Free at last.  ;-)

No unfortunately the guy I bought it from left all the spark plugs out and there's water inside.......
it was my fault for not checking but I got too excited when I saw the exhaust wasn't rotted out and in good shape.

I'd also like to know.

The hondamatic muffler I have in a parts bin is stamped 393.

Besides that, they look identical.
