Traded in a bunch of parts and old frames for this the other day...

nice....cb750K. Oil cooler, Kerker header (hold on to that - much better than that mack garbage), good stuff. Looks to be a 73 or earlier based on the signals on it.

One thing I would check is to see if there is a metal brace under that fiberglass blade fender. CB750s have a fork brace built into the stock front fender and when you remove the the forks get kind of wobbly. If there isn't you should consider putting some kind of brace on there (the cheapest one is to cut the stock brace out of a stock front fender and then you can screw that blade fender to it.

Cool. Thanks for that. The fender's held on with hoseclamps and I'm going back to a stock front fender. I've also got a nice, freshly painted set of forks sitting in the garage that I'm gonna use.

it's a '74. In pretty good shape, last registered in '04... so we'll see. I'm hoping to have it out for a rip in a couple of days. Have to find a couple of parts for it, rebuild the front master cylinder, and get a new petcock... and scrape off that butt ugly VanHalen looking striping.
