    I think I may have found a garage I can work in. A buddy of mine rents one out on Vanderbilt St. I gotta check it out and make sure its big enough to actually work in. Scott, I saw that 750 and emailed the guy, still waiting on pics. I also just saw this http://newyork.craigslist.org/que/mcy/1580106539.html
    looks like that one might be promising, as long as i can start it and ride it home.

    DOHC bikes are nice bikes. More refined over the SOHC bikes and are solid overall bikes. If you want to buy a DOHC, don't buy anything but an F model, as they are the performance model with triple disc brakes and a stronger frame design. Also they take their bodywork styling from superbikes of the day and were champion racebikes in almost stock form. There are a lot of performance parts for those bikes but bodywork wise, not a lot to make them look old, and it kinda hard to do anyway. The 1981-82 models have the best brakes, but if you buy an earlier one you can swap those brakes on as well. The cb900f is essentially the same bike (even the paint scheme) but 900ccs instead of 750. The 1100F is a 1 year only bike and collectible so unless you have $3K to spend I would stay away.

    There is a really good resource here: http://www.cb1100f.net/

    I would buy that 650 over a kz400 any day of the week. there are people here who own them and love them, I am not one of those people. the problem with looking for something cheap is that you are going to have to wade through a lot of shit to find the right gem. you are 6' anyway, kz400s are tiny.

    if you go with the kz, drop a few bucks into it and take good care of it...then sell it for more when you realize you need something bigger.
