Well, since I have now sold my F1, Guess I can only register with my K8.
Here she is in all her glory:



1978 Honda CB750K. 20K plus miles on the clock. In it for the long haul on a project to turn it into a great cafe looking street machine.

Bike: 1970 KO located in Oshkosh, WI.  
Purchased in July 2007 and had not been run in 17 years.  Owner lost interest.  Took 3 weeks to get it running and then decided it was fit for a restore.  This winter project is coming along good.  Chrome was finished 2 weeks ago and the painted products in candy apple red came back yesterday.  Here is a preview...

          77' CB750A that I got from my Dad. He pulled the Windjammer off of it and put the front end off of a 79' Cb750K that he picked up for parts. ::) Soon as I can, I'n going to put the correct front end back on it and try to put it back mostly stock, get it running to see just what needs to be done to it. Mufflers are in pretty bad shape, for sure. Might just put it back mostly like it was when he got it and try to slowly locate the parts to put the correct headlight on it. I'll post pics, as soon as I get some.
 
          Looks like I'm the first to list a CB750A, does that mean it might need it's own Registry? I know there is at least one more, maybe two.

         Oh, and it's in Greenwood, Arkansas.

                               Take care, Bill ;)

In lots of bits and pieces. Hope to be putting it back together "my style" over the summer. Then at least I get to ride it during winter :-\

Location:  Marietta, Georgia (just outside Atlanta)
Motorcycle:  1977 750K

Purchased used in 1979.  In 1981, bored to 836cc, Weisco pistons, ported and polished intake, mild cam, and RC headers.  After 1984, parked in garage.  Last year, wife surprised me by having a shop clean and adjust carbs, tune up, new tires, etc.  Runs great!

Currently, while attempting to unstick front caliper, I broke a bolt in the forks.  So, now changing front end over to 1978 750F to get the Comstars and dual front brakes.  Upgrading to tapered steering bearings.  Keeping K model triple trees and using Comstars from a 1979 750K Anniversary Edition to keep steering geometry same as original.

Here's the 77 750F I purchased last September.  I'm currently in the process of tearing this down and freshening up its look.  It has a lot going for it - it runs strong, low miles, and already has some nice add-ons like air forks, lower bars, and Napoleon mirrors, Kerker, Accell Coils and Wires, braided stainless brake lines.

Location: Sandy Hook, CT (about 10 miles east of Danbury, CT)
Motorcycle: 1977 750 F2



Here is the "after" for this bike



I also added a 78F

Here's a shout out from glorious Luck, Wisconsin and my 2 SOHCS - 74 and 75 Ks. Sorry, I'm too lazy to uncover my K0 which is deep in storage.
There are old bikers and there are bold bikers but there are very few old, bold bikers.

Quote from: Gordon
Not doing what you can to make your bike ride-able during the best riding months of the year kind of defeats the purpose of owning it in the first place.

My daily driver in warm weather. 47,000 miles. Stopped counting the money I've spent on it long ago. It was worth it :)

'70 CB750 K1

Got it for free from someone who was moving and didn't want to take it with them. The rolling frame was in the backyard, the rest of the parts were in boxes in the side yard. Last registered in '74 and there's just a bit more work to do. It's getting there though.  ;D

Two right now.

1976 CB750F Super Sport.  Just turned over 1,000 original miles.  In showroom condition and used as a Daily Driver.  Still has the yellow paint on the fittings from the factory, and when I replaced the original tires (for safety since they were hard as granite), air from 1976 came out of the tubes. 



1969 CB750 Sandcast.  Crown Jewel of the collection and only ridden occasionally.  Purchased from 736cc on this very board.  It's a perfect collectible "rider" that can be used as Soichiro intended, but still increase in value if maintained.  Perfect original patina and ALL the correct early Sandcast parts the collectors froth over.  I'll never buy a bike to just look at.  Every one I buy WILL be ridden.

I picked up this 1978 F3 10300 miles I paid more for the new exhaust than I did the bike what a deal. It took some cleaning the carbs were gummed up and the brakes were locked, new chain,tires and some elbow grease and it is good to go. I would like to thank all on this forum for their info and support.

That's quite a shop in the background.
