    I would have that! Must be a slow winter there.
    Cant imagine what the price tag will be. And you will STILL have to add a billet top clamp!
    It is pretty amazing though..

    The Honda wouldn't need rebuilding until its 50...or more.

    You may not be able to build a CB750 from dealer stock, but Honda made 400,000 of the SOHC version between 1969 and 1978 and I never ever had trouble getting reasonably priced parts for mine.

    The motovation I needed

    Oh boy. Now I am motivated to begin my 1976 R90S! I picked her up a few years ago knowing at some point I would make her all pretty again. Paint is near perfect, luckily, but the frame is scratched, lots of dust, just not well looked after. A nice base to work off. Has Morris wheels and a rear disc. About 50,000 miles indicated, no paperwork to support it, will find out the real story when I get my gloves on. This build by Max is a really cool idea as well as a terrific motovator considering the time of year, high fives to their marketing folks.
    Regards,

    I've left it running today. It's cool even if I don't know what they're doing: readjust this part, fiddle with that part, move the camera, squirt some lube.

    Ah, something I recognize: rings on the piston and fit in the cylinder!

    Well.... have YOU ever tried this? I restored a 1975 Honda CB750K5. New body work, new fenders, new exhaust, new seat, all new seals and gaskets, new top-end, new switchgear, new engine covers, new rear wheel hub, new rims (with new spokes), new instruments. All NOS parts obtained over the period of 6 months and I did not have to sell my first born.
    Oh, O.K. you're right, it is not 40 years old!

    Good for you Mike! Doing a restoration is one thing, but sourcing virtually EVERY part (frame, all parts to build (not rebuild) an engine and tranny from ground up, every fastener, gasket, wire, etc., to build a complete bike from NOTHING is pretty amazing.

    If it CAN be done with another specific bike, I stand corrected, (how is Honda's support for the early CBX six cylinder bikes or the turbos?),but that wasn't really the point. The point was to highlight BMW's parts support for our bikes and to enjoy the four day build from the ground up.

    If you are not enjoying the build, maybe there is another thread that you might enjoy more. I retract my earlier misinformed comment about Honda 750s. This thread should not become a thread about them. I only posted this for our members to enjoy. Sorry.
