Welcome, Jarrett_Honda. :) That is a swell looking ride! It doesn't even look like you have to visit the "Project Shop" or the "Proven Tricks & Tips / How To's [sic]" segments of the site. ::) Enjoy!

Hello from Kansas City,

This is my CB750 K2.  Built 7/72 but titled as a 73'. Frame CB750-2055319, Engine CB750E-20663234. I think I read somewhere that back in the day before standardized VIN #'s bikes were titled when sold rather than when built. Anyhoo here is how she sits today. Still needs some love but getting there.

Greetings! Allow me to introduce you all to Red Peg. I've had her about 26 years now. Bought when I was 20 from a boss who was going through a divorce and thought it might look bad to have 2 motorcycles. He was the second owner so I'm the third. This was my first bike, and it's been on the road almost every year since I got it. I've had a couple other bikes in that time, but this one has pretty much always been "my bike". I'd like something more modern too, but I can't imagine getting rid of Red Peg. She's got about 62K on the clock now. During those lean college years and when my kids were little I kept it running with the help of a Clymer manual and a parts bike I got in a trade. Over those years I've done almost all the work myself, so anything that's FUed about it is all on me.

I didn't manage to get it out of storage at all last year, so this year I made sure to get it out as soon as the snow was good and gone, and I've been working on it all summer slowly chipping away at the years of accumulated mechanical issues. At this point I'm ready to move on to the cosmetics. Of course it's a 40+ year old bike so it's always gonna need something, but at this point Red Peg is humming pretty good.

Great story on Red Peg. Many of us have held on to our bikes through good and bad. Therapy &/or paid for. LOL.

What mini fairing is that? Nice addition. 
As of today 3/13/2012 my original owner 75 CB750F has made it through 3 wives, er EX-wives. Free at last.  ;-)

Thanks. It's a Rifle Nightflight fairing I put on there sometime around 2000.

Lot’s of things. You’ve been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. It’s having the right attitudes that’s hard.

Hey

Joined the forum today so here is my 77' F2. Originally a US but imported to the UK and restored.

Previous owner said the bike had no issues, unfortunately he was not truthful. The bike had 80% of nuts and bolts finger tight, hole in the engine casing, worn cam tensioners, incorrect needle heights as well as different needles and the paint job turned to glue if it came into contact with petrol.
