There seems to be a lot of Honda guys on here, and although most of you appear to be on the east coast, I thought I'd post this, the seat is kind of hideous but could look good if you shaved the foam down from it's peak toward the back fender Cafe style. It bike appears all there, I don't know if this is a pretty good buy since I'm not really into 'em. My favorite of the Honda's is the CB400F with the Factory 4-1.

LOL I didn't even notice that text, yeah that's funny when someone who doesn't know anything about bikes provides such a "description" of what needs done...they can only see the two outside ones so there "must" only be 2...hehehe.

the post was removed before I could look at it but....there are plenty of dual carb setups made for the cb750 and all of them except the cycleexchange one (which is currently in production) are kinda rare these days. I used to have a dual webber setup, and I have seen single and dual posa setups, Dual mukuni and kehin setups, even hilborn setups.

damn, nobody around here ever gives stuff away. the cycle exchange system........i spoke to ken of cyclex and he actually talked me out of buying the system for my cafe. he said the frame would have to be modded to fit around the filters and because of how far apart the carbs are the linkage would likely bind when firced up under the tank.

some people are like slinkies, basically useless but they still make me smile when i push them down the stairs

but it was cool.

your shitting me. To be fair he has had some fitment problems with the cycleex system on stock frame bikes. However there are guys actually running these on stock framed bikes without frame mods, he is just being lazy because he gets a million calls about them and would rather deal with chopper stuff. He used to sell the correct carb rubbers to make the system work with a stock frame, must have run out of them.
