Hey Glenn, I'm still around and check things here from time to tmie.  Lately, I spent nearly a year going thru my '77 GL1000, and I still spend time on my '76 CB750F....not as much because the O rings in the head are weeping and I haven't wanted to pull the engine.  My back is kind'a broken, so I may photograph cutting the minor support above the engine for head removal without pulling the engine.  I've found a small number of people that've done this, even without replacing the minor supports...and've had no problems as such.  I will though, reattach the minor support via sleeves of some sort.

Till then,

 More on-line Manuals

Try this out.  All bikes.  All years.

You have to wade through the Google ads first but there seem to be many SOHC manuals in there.

I came across this one by purchasing on ebay.  They have the absolute trickest SOHC4 750 stuff I've ever seen, makes me eager to start building a chopper.  Check out their 4 into 2 carb setups and their wheels.
www.cyclexchange.net

Make sure and study this site thoroughly and thank the new guy latter.

Also, www.vonblonde.com is pretty good.

Later,
JP

Hi JP,

Check out the FAQ section

Here's the link http://www.sohc4.us/forums/index.php?topic=743.0

In addition to finding Cyclexchange there you'll find a whole smorgasboard of sites that have parts available for the SOHC.

Like the vonblonde link theres some cool bikes there. Thanks.

Wow!  Thanks Kghost, I checked the posts within this thread and thought I had something new- I guess I need to just soak up all the great info on this site.  That classicbikes.co.uk site is awesome.  Some really nice bikes.

Anyone put this up,

http://www.dansmc.com/MC_repaircourse.htm

Really easy to read site. When I first started getting the old bike going, A Germany Engineering buddy of mine. Thought oh how simple, and started fiddling, well one thing lead to another and the next thing you know he had the old bike on FIRE. He was using lot's of starter fluid trying to get her going.
Its over in his garage and I was not there at the time.

When I found this site the first statement was BUY A "FIRE EXTINGUISHER"... Ha     

Great little read though, I like how he wants you to buy an old fin housing and break of some fins so you know how fragile they can be and also practice torquing bolts to get the feel...

"rebuild it rebuild it and rebuild it" 
quote from 30 year old Honda owners manual.
Good thing though, its good for another 30 years.

This is my little side gig that I started to help the guys with the older Honda's. None of the dealers in the area want anything to do with the older stuff so I thought I could help. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

www.ace-cafe-london.com

Cafes of pretty much every single marque and model. Excellent time killer since there's 53 pages of pics.


          Oh yeah, There's a bunch there all right. Been there a few times myself (on line, that is) and enjoyed it. Haven't been there in a while, need to see if there's any new ones.

Anyone familiar with YearOne for automotive restoration parts?

I just got an email notification of a new thing they're doing, check it out:

Pretty cool idea

I heard of these guys a few years ago when I was doing my 69 Chev. P-U. It looks like all they are doing with bikes is H-D's.

Yep, looks like it.  Kinda cool idea, though.  Year One is a really cool place for restoration parts.  Their place (in Georgia) is awesome, all kinds of old "automobilia" on the walls, customer photo albums, just a neat way to spend a day.  Used to go there to get parts with my Brother when I lived in GA.

Hi - This is a link to a guy who has 550 manuals and handbooks and a carb manual for download-

http://www.cryscom.nb.ca/Documents.htm

 
These are good for cafe parts - not all Honda but very inspiring.

Um, this isn't so much of a club, but I find it REALLY useful. Maybe you all know it already.

It's an online microfiche program with a live price update from all the parts for a bunch of Honda bikes. I use it to pull up info on my Nighthawk whenever I need stuff, and the prices seem to be store/distributor prices. The downside is that it only works with Internet Explorer...

YOU MUST FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR IT TO WORK. Then it loads as if it was running in a program on your computer (but inside your web browser).

The second is a shameless link to my web site. :P

Unfortunately I don't update it very often these days,
