I must be addicted

I am not sure how or why it happened, but I now own 3 yes count them three 1976 CB 750 As. I have my daily rider which looks like brand new, but is in dire need of a better front break (I had checked out the duel disc conversion here in the manual section). I was also thinking if anything ever happened to my engine where would I get replacement parts.
This morning I as usual checked craigslist looking for anything that might catch my fancy. All the sudden I saw a posting come up for a CB 750 A with a parts bike. The first bike needs some work on the wiring and cosmetics, but will run (will make a great bobber). The second bike has some good parts, but the engine is stuck. The guy also started cleaning out his shed, and gave me a bunch of parts including an extra frt end with all the break parts I will need.
All this and a title for $200 I think I might go and buy a lottery ticket.
Oh this guy still had a shed full of parts and 2 more CB 750 As.

I like vintage bikes because they take me away from the clutter of technology that I work with everyday and back to a simpler time of mechanical elegance and simplicity.. "ninadm"

Thats not an addiction. That is called stockpiling hard to get parts for the future. That is smart planning!
The ride IS the adventure. The destination is just to get gas!
