yea for a $150.00 it's dirty and missing some minor shit but it's not thrashed.
You just dont see many of these around. Gonna do the usual (clean carbs,tank,chg oil,tune and slap a batt in it and see what happens then Im gonna rework it for the ol lady.

Very nice score on the 7610 Koni shocks. They are rebuildable and a very good shock! Almost worth the asking price for the whole bike!

it has a torque converter instead of a clutch and high and low range instead of 5 speeds.you gas and go.thats why the "clutch" cover looks different than most cb750's.i have a complete engine,it always makes me scratch my head.nice score for the wife,keep us posted.

I'm pretty sure they called it "Hondamatic".

+1 on nice score for the wife.

Fuck it's still got the kicker! Rarer then hen's teeth and twice the price.

Nice score

Yea and it's in good shape too, the bike was only missing the orignal seat ,instrument cluster and head & tail lite lens's.
I think it sat outside for at least 15yrs.
Got it up on the lift,got the carbs apart and pryed the points cover off.....filled with corrosion.

Not his bike, just his springer popped on cragslist that same day, I know he's a hondamatic fanatic, so I was assuming. I talked to Willburt the next day and got the extended version. I always call him Wilbur, I wish he'd correct me but he's probably used to people butchering his name like I am.
Is it Bramdon or Brandon???? I'm confused, maybe my ears need a good cleaning like lose carbs back to the bike....

Hahaa! Bramdon, No, it's brandon.

Wilburt didn't correct me 'till I did te 'whillber' of ed the horse, Now I just try to say it correctly.I know I used to get pissed off when people screwed up my name. I can only imagine how rough it must be to be wilburt instead of wilbur.

late!

OTOH, the gunk those float bowls had... Sheesh~!

Did you find out why the carbs were different /smaller then other cb750s of the same era yet?
