@motojobobo That's also a CB750 four. The bikes pictured are both from 1976, and had spent their lives in a garage together in Scotland for the last 40 years. Seemed a shame to separate so we bought them both. The red one restored to original spec. The black one far from standard, but that's a longer story...

Always hankered after a sandcast............That'd be a nice "upgrade"...

Ditto @Giles if you've looked lately decent sand cast originals are darn hard to come by and ££££, and probably better spent in dry storage where I suspect most are these days.

Just got on to this thread...Really great bikes,and pictures. Reminds me of when I was a kid and the 750/4 came out and I,for the first time in my life,lusted after something that wasn’t a Harley.

Thanks @Jett129 It was certainly a game changer back in its day. I've been looking into Harley's recently too, but realistically need to make room. Gutted they didn't exhibit at the recent MCN at Excel, but in hindsight probably a good thing :)

Finally had time to put some clear coat on a helmet I painted last year. Still need to buff it out and put the trim and visor snaps back on.

@natehate I’ve been into the idea of a Harley for sometime and have been considering a 5 year old fourth eight for months as a ready to go set up. But there’s just something that always draws me to making it my own. Love what you’ve built, a lot, can you tell me more about it?
