1. When are you picking it up ?

2. What side of town are you on ?

3. If you purchase it are you interested in trading for anything ?

4. Will you deliver if bought from you, or would i have to tow it home ?

5. When can you get pics of it , so we the friendly peeps of mh can make a decent offer. And dont try to screw us over , we know how much your picking it up for .

Who ever gets this bike should contact Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited and talk to him about it. He is currently in the process of rebuilding a CB750 right now and you will not find anyone nicer or more knowledgeable than him when it comes to projects like this. I am sure he can get you the hook up on any needed parts you will be needing and trust me you will need some parts. LOL anyway good luck to whom ever get it and enjoy. They were great bikes.

it's always something.

and just for the record, parts for the old SOHC CB 750 Fours are not easy to come by. they have become more and more hard to find over the years and fetch a hefty price for the good parts, when you can find them.

i've had two in my life and would love to have another mint '75, in metallic red.
