Cash for your assistances with CB750

Hello,

I have a 71 Honda CB750 that has a 76 cb750 engine in it. The bike runs great and transmission is fine but there is a slight oil leak coming from the head gasket and the bike can use a clean up. I want to turn it to a cafe racer but only to something like this honda cb750 cafe racer 6

The bike is cosmetically stock but the engine has been worked on before by the past owner.

I would love to work with the bike but I don't want to mess anything up and have to buy a new engine. I would pay someone to HELP/guide me through the process while I take it apart and replace the head gasket and other parts that need to be replaced.

I won't pay too much but I will pay you base on how much I was helped.

I'm sorry I can't help you with your request but I would love to see your bike.
I've been looking and wanting an old CB750.
Any chance you'll post a pic of the bike?

why not put the money youd spend on a mentor and use it on a service manual?


if youre capable of following directions, it should be all you need. At least you could then work at your leisure and not have to schedule with someone to help out...

Does your bike have the twin cam head motor like in the pic? I can't remember when the CB750 went from the original single cam to the later dual cam. I like the dual cam in that pic. PM me, I'll give you my number, will mentor you for free. Been wrenching since I was 12, so 32 years, in my spare time and 2 years as a shop tech in college. I also have a CB750, everything but tank and frame, that I can donate to the project if you need it. You just have to promise me you'll finish the bike, or gimme my stuff back.

Peter

FWIW, the leaky head gasket should be about the last thing you fix before final assembly. Everything else needs to be done on the chassis...fabrication, test fitting, stripping, painting, polishing.... before the final steps of mounting major components.

That leak is most likely coming from some rubber plugs between the camshaft holder and the head.

#91318-300-013 there are six total.

This is if it is SOHC
