CB750F Super Sport Rolling Restoration
Well, I decided to add another horse to the stable and found a very decent specimen of an 1981 CB750F Super Sport that was also looking for a good home to go to. The PO said he was doing some carb work as the bowls kept flooding. He claims to have taken them apart replaced gaskets and they still flooded. I suspect just a good cleaning and maybe a float hight adjustment is all it should need but just incase I did buy a rebuild kit. Both the PO and the seller (As the PO is out of state at the moment) claim the bike was a strong runner before the carb work began. It does try to kick over and sounds to have good compression so the fingers are crossed that when I put the carbs back on it will kick over and run.
I don't plan on cafeing this out....as of yet. There are just too many people doing that these days and while I would love to own one this bike is original to the point it still has all the factory stickers still on it. I plan on getting this up and running with out a hitch and buffing the paint and plastic and putting new decals on it.
I'm going to take lots of photos and some videos for you guys. Also, if you want I can provide pricing for parts and what not so that you guys can get an idea of what a rolling restore would cost. I am going to try and use OEM brand new or NOS when ever possible but I know with it being 33 years old I may have to go with reproductions. I do work MIDS right now and have a two year old to watch after so work maybe slow going but the plan is to have her shipshape by the spring.
Here is the first picture of when I purchased and brought her home the night of the 5th. In the picture the side cover are missing and the airbox too. This is becuase the seller brought it down from the mountain thinking he had everything and of course he didn't. He is going back up on Tuesday to get the parts and the manuals for it. My fingers are crossed that they are there as that was not an expense I was figuring on. I have ordered parts already and have taken off the carbs. I have more pictures of that to post later today.
