    6200/6254 and 6476/6276 are the two engine/tranny numbers surrounding the advertised bike's numbers of Cb750-1006208 frame Cb750e1006282 engine. Seems to be in line with what is nearby, and the numbers are close enough that I would call it numbers "matching". this puts the build date/casting date somewhere in august or september of 1969.

    you would be surprised. for instance most suzuki 2 strokes have matching numbers. All my t500s have the same numbers on the cases and frame. gs suzukis don't match however.

    I have a '70 CB750. All original. Got it from the original owner who rode it but didn't molest it. Its numbers don't match either.
    Don\'t cry because its over. Smile because it happened

    None of my diecast 69's have matching ID numbers between the frame and engine. I might believe 15K for a fully restored sandcast. For the bike listed above and in the condition it's in - maybe 4 ~ 6K. I guess you can ask for any price you want and there will be someone willing to pay. For that matter I can buy a fully restored 47 HD for that price range.

    Given the current price increases for cb750's (any year) restored to classic shape is a better investment than the stock market. For that matter any vintage bike is bringing top dollar - but that's now and greatly depends on demand.
