Value of 1981 CB750C ???

One of the guys who works for me has a 1981 CB750C w/ Windjammer fairing just sitting in his garage. Needs carb work and new intake boots.

What is something like this worth?

$750 to $1k i'd guess. that's about what i'd offer for it anyway, assuming the engine is in good condition.

i'd assume fork seals are gonna need to be replaced as well, as well as some type of rust treatment for the tank, so if those are actually good, then maybe a little more.

He said the engine was fine but was starting to have carb problems. He attempted to work on the carbs himself, got overwhelmed and put them back on and planned to take it to a shop to have it done. Then he bought a new Shadow and the 750 has been sitting for a couple years.

It would probably be worth a little more without that hideous fairing. What was wrong with people in the 80's?

clean title, and in hand (not lost)? i can't really guess any better than that not seeing the bike in person, but let him know i'm interested. i'd like to come down and take a look at it if he's ready to sell it.

edit: quick google search brought this up
http://newyork.craigslist.org/stn/mcy/800659279.html

I sold my 81 cb900c last year for $500.

Needed carb work, new tires, new fork seals. Had 60k miles. Motor was in good shape.

What do you want this for? Sorry if you've already said. If you want to make a cafe racer, keep looking. The customs sit on a different frame then the k and f series.

me? i'm interested primarily for the drivetrain. i'm interested in doing a hardtail bobber, but i'm looking at buying a different frame regardless of what i start with.

i am interested in getting one that's close enough to running that i could fix it up and ride it until i get the money and all the parts to do the project at once.

...and having a little different starting point has never stopped me from trying what i wanted...
