Possibly Parting out 81 CB750F or selling whole

 Bike is pretty much complete minus the rear tail light and fender assembly. All 3 brake calipers have been taken apart and cleaned. New seals in rear caliper. Brakes are working well at this point. Engine has approx 25k miles. Picture shows a new seat, but I have the original as well and the side covers (one is cracked). Bike has a Vance and Hines Super Sport Exhaust system which is in good shape and retails for $400 new.

Let me know what you're intersted in. Bike is in coal cracker country, zip code 17972.

The carburetors on any multi cylinder motorcycle will give you fits if the bike has ever been sitting for a few months with gas in them and no stabilizer. There are rebuilders out there with very good reputations who will rebuild your carbs to factory new. It'll cost around ~$400 to $500.

Your best bet is to just download the rebuilding guide (DOHC carb cleaning run down - http://honda-cb750-s.456789.n3.nabble.com/file/n685918/Honda_Carb_Manual_revD.pdf Alt link: http://creativeconceptcomputers.com/CB750/dohccarbmanual.pdf) and follow it before giving up. The three biggest issues are dirty idle/slow jets (you've got to pull them out to clean them), leaking float valves (you've got to clean the seats really well), and leaking O-rings in the fuel rail between carbs #1 and #2 (you've got to split the rack and replace the O-rings).

It's a nice looking bike. You wanted it at one time so don't give up on her now

If you part it out, there's  a guy on here who crashes his a lot. He'll want your timing cover and the rotor thingy. LOL (inside joke).

Thanks for the encouragement. I've found a 81 900f for a decent price, but have also found that the carbs may not be the main issue. I've got no spark on 1 and 4 and have pinned it down to the left side coil. I'm hoping that with a new coil she'll fire up. At this point I've put in so much time and money on parts that I'd really hate to get rid of it without riding it even once, but it's so nice out I want to ride SOMETHING now.

Heeeey.... :(

That is a nice looking bike. It takes ages to part out a bike like this. Selling complete will be much faster and keeps one more bike alive. How much are you wanting for it?

I really wish I had the time to haggle with you on this bike. I hate to see a complete running and titled bike get parted out. Usually you see a couple hundred dollars worth of parts get sold off then the rest sits and goes to waste...and eventually sold for scrap. At ~$10 per 100 lbs a scrapped motorcycle will only bring about $30-40. Good luck with the sale bud. I hope it finds a happy home.

I wish I had the time to mess with it to get it up and running. It's having ignition and carb issues, and I have a full time job, 2 kids, a wife, a dog, and other hobbies. It was probably a poor decision to purchase it as a first bike to learn on and I'm learning that the hard way. I'm just trying to recoup enough $ so I can buy a new bike that will be more hassle free an allow me to get into the hobby safely and with as little head-banging as possible.

Thanks for your concern.

I'm looking for a headlight, chrome ring and screws to mount to a stock bucket.

Anyone?

I am also interested in the tank and controls (practically everything that mounts to the handle bars...) if you are still trying to part out.
