Hello all. I sold my '74 CB750 a few years ago before temporarily moving out of the state while my girl finished school (should've shipped it up there). I believe I sold it to someone on this board, actually, haha. Now that I've moved back to FL, I've picked up a '72 CB350 that I've been using as my daily rider (also my only current mode of transportation after selling my van). Now, I love this little thing. Fun to ride, and GREAT ON GAS.... but I could use something with a bit more top speed. South FL is somewhat of a wasteland when it comes to cars and bikes (that aren't ridiculously over-priced), but I figured I'd put some feelers out there. Below is a picture of the math blaster (got its name trying to measure how much oil it was leaking when I got it):
South FL, I wonder if it was Mark that bought your CB 750? That is a really nice looking CB 350. Are you looking to trade it on a CB 750?

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"

Yep, Mark. Thats the guy, haha. Thanks. I haven't sunken a lot of money into this thing yet. For the right 750, I might part with it. I've thrown some new tires on it, fuel lines, petcock, cleaned/re-sealed the tank (got that kreem crap outta there), brake lines, clutch cable, sprockets and chain.
If I end up keepin it, I'm gonna pull the motor out and powder-coat the frame, paint the engine with some high heat primer, redo all the main gaskets, and throw replace the bolts with stainless allen bolts (and I'm sure once I crack it open there might be a few more things to tinker with.
It runs good and always starts up. Could possibly use a tune. Gonna reset the timing and adjust the valves when I find some time. These always run a little differently when they put aftermarket pipes on em. Honestly, it might not be jetted for the pipes. Just runs a little spotty on low RPM's sometimes.
I am getting ready to part with my 77 750K. Darker color one in the pic. It was a complete tear down,
cleaned, painted, replaced what was needed. Installed new rings, valve guides, tensinoers etc.
