Ha Ha!!! One of the first bikes I ever rode was a CB750. A buddy of mine owned it as well as a CB900. Lose the windshield/front fairing, passenger backrest, saddle bags, and put some drop bars on it and it's quite a cool ride. His had a kerker exhaust on it and it sounded mean!!!! He could even get that thing to lay 50' strips of rubber....it totally took me by suprise for sure!!!

Ya, the fairing is crappy looking. Doesn't really match the original paint on the tank and oil cover. I tried to convince him to give it to me one time but for some reason he is not all for that. Now we need a tractor for the property we just bought so he seems to be open to selling it to get a tractor.

I think those are straight pipes on that also, no mufflers. I do remember him riding us around on it as a kid and remember it being VERY LOUD.

Great bike for a project:

Removing the fairing, hard bags and replacing the seat and adding "Clubman" bards will convert that bike into a "Café Racer"...!!!!

I think he has the original mufflers as well somewhere in the garage. Would those make it worth more?

Found the original exhaust. They are in rough shape, looks like they were stored in a shed out back on a dirt floor.pipes

My dad tells me that he has not started it in 10 years. When he put it away it was running fine. I would imagine that the right thing to do is give it a good cleaning, replace the fluids, crank it without starting up, replace all the hoses and rubber (including tires) pull the carbs and clean, rejet and adjust. Put new battery in it. Should cost no more than $500 to get it in nearly perfect running shape. It only has 29540 miles on it. Sitting around in storage probably dry-rotted all the rubber on the bike. Fortunately from reading about this bike it is pretty much bullet proof so getting it running again should be no sweat.

Man, a bunch of people have been sending me links to pics of fully restored versions of this bike. They are SWEET! Too bad this bike is in Utah!

yeah, in the visual condition it's in, if it's just running i'd say 1500-2000 pretty easily. i'd love to pick one up, but i mostly want the engine and misc. parts to build a chopper, so i'm looking for one not quite as close to unmolested as that.
