They've made root beer for a long time. It's actually IMO one of the best. It's even better on tap. Specs sells it.

Where did you find your CB750 and are there any years that are better than others and things like that?

As you are reading forums and such, if you find a good deal on one in Houston or Texas for that matter - will you PM me please?

Thanks!! Looking great so far!

Oh and I know a good seat shop in Houston if you need.
Yes i would like the name of that seat shop you recommend.
According to Carpy, who is the cb750 cafe whiz (www.cb750cafe.com), try to get a cb750 from '73-'76... Those are after the sandcasted engines so there stong, and most parts are easiest to find/interchangable.

From Carpy's site:

" What years are the best to Cafe for SOHC?"
Well lets see, stay away from the real early years such as Sand-cast and die cast models, you pay a small fortune for the parts and the restorers will be sending you hate mail.
Stick with 1973/74/75 and 76 CB750K models, as there are many interchangeable parts still around and these models are still quite common compared to the early years.
The 1975-1978 F models - i.e. Super Sport etc.
Well they are cool and the 78 has the best engine as the head is far better designed etc, but parts are harder to locate for them.
The 1977 and 1978 CB750K is a great bike, ugly as a Bruise on your , but a strong motor, they have a longer frame and the gas tank really is as bulbous as a Jenny Craig fan.
So there you go, personally I would stick to the mid 1970's K series SOHC bikes simply for parts and more commonly available, although all are becoming scarce these days.

Ah hem, I expect a phone call or at least a pm to come help wrench on this thing. You need to have it ready for mods vs. rockers!

Sorry homie. If you wanna help or just come by and check her out, C'mon down to chads shop sometime or gimme a holler. Seriously, Come by sometime. I actually lost your # after i upgraded phones, so PM it to me. BTW i still owe you a beer for pushin' the Dizzer back at the DP. Get ya back at the W. alabama Ice House.

I'm in a pinch for rockers vs mods though, but i'm def gonna make it out. I'd just like to have my new exhaust on the bike & give her a quick tune up before R.vs M., but we all know how slow UPS can be sometimes. dont think I'll have time for the seat by then though... My GF will just have to cage it.
