Doesn't "need" anything but could use a paint job on the tank. The paint is chipped and cracking. Everything else is fine. Runs good, lights work, brakes are great... it's ready to go.

Come on now. Haven't you heard, King/Queen seats are comeing back in style. Also makes a bike 10% faster. Would be the perfect finishing touch to any proper cafe :D

Just bought a NOS king/queen seat for my Thunderbird. Just don't tell anyone.

Still hoping to get The Lovely Sue on the bike with me. Maybe a more comfortable seat will do the trick?

Can you talk about the 74 cb750 - is it just carb problems or is the engine messed up??? I'm down the road from you and would like to check it out.

Engine turns over fine. The carbs are busted up because it looks like someone tried to take them apart and did not know what they were doing. The carbs will be good for parts but are useless beyond that. If the bike does not sell in the next few days I will be going to Parry cycle to get a set of carbs for it. I may also take the carbs from the 75 and put them on the 74 just to get it running. Of course then the price goes up. Bike has high miles, 51,000 but was rebuilt at around 32,000 or so I was told.

No but I have 4 cats that I would gladly include in a deal. The black/white dog is a pit/collie mix and a hell of a guard dog. Freaking dog almost got me arrested last year when he bit a girl who was trying to hit him with a stick. Luckily my neighbor saw it happen and told the cop who just said "I guess the girl got what she deserved" and then went to tell the girls parents what she had been up to. I have 14 bikes in the garage so it is nice to know that he is out there, laying on the couch and just waiting for someone to sneak in.

Sorry, it's Perry Cycle. They are a salvage yard in Perry, NY. No website but you can call at 585-237-3031. Nice guys there, laid back and kind of stuck in the 70's.. just really into bikes.

Wish you lived closer to me (NC) I'd be happy to take the 74cb750 off your hands. Someone beat me to the xs750 I was trying to get.

KZ1000 sold for full price to the first guy who came to see it. Only had the bike for 6 days but it sure was fun while I had it. Most bikes I sell go to the first guy who makes it to the house. Maybe I should raise my prices a bit.
