Hi, it's actually a k6 dressed as a k2 ( just love the colour scheme and style of the tank - Yamiya ).
Regards

As about 99.9% of the snow has melted off, and we had a bit of a heatwave with a high temp of 61*, I decided to blow the cobwebs off the Seeley, or at least get all the oil out the sump and back into the oil tank. ;D Mostly putted around town, as well as going up into the foothills east of town until I ran out of pavement. When I was taking the pics, I saw a sundog, so I snapped a pic of it, too.

That looks fantastic Scott, I must try setting up the multi-spark ignition I've had in a box for many years, it was for an RC Suzuki GS1000 but from memory it'll work on a CB750. I love the view of that town too, reminds me of a doco I watched about where Evel Knievel grew up. ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

Oh yes, I could live in Arizona for a while.  Drove  Tombstone to Grand Canyon in 2013.

But what is a sundog?

We see them far too often in the winter months up here in Fargo. Seems to happen on a cold, bright day after fresh snowfall. But I digress. Wish I could post a pic of my SOHC on the road, but with the current wind chill of -21* F, I’d rather not take it out of the garage.

I had one on my GL1000 and was very happy with it. I wish I had switched back to points and kept the Gerex when I sold that bike.
