Motor mounts for 69 - 76 should be the same, 77 and 78 should be the same (as 69-76), but the final drive chain and hub come out a bit more. TC Bros say it makes a dif on their hard tails. I don't think it made a dif on the third party frames. Any pics? Maybe we can nail it down.

PM Rudehog he'll know the final answer and more.

Thanks mine is a 78 i know there is some diferences with the 77-78 just wanted to see if all the sohc had the same mounts. Im looking at a pre 78 stock frame hardtailed and was curious if mine will fit. This is the frame

Depending on where it is at, he'd wait a while to get what it might be worth. New CB 750 frames aren't too expensive that they can command too much for used, even classic used. Have him email me, I'll tell him they are a dime a dozen and he;ll be lucky if it isn't yard art 5 years from now. Take ANYTHING he can get and dont let a buyer slip away... ha ha!

Ah,.... I need to go someplace where that shit is growning on the trees.....

Yeah the 77-78 motors have a longer outputshaft which spaces the drive sprocket out further, they also use a wider sprocket carier on the rear wheel to line the sprockets up

alright Hellbilly im a v-twin guy but sounds like the 77-78 would have a wider rear end(swingarm). So a pre 77 hardtail at stock width wont work on my 78 am i reading this right?

I dont think it would be an issue. You may have to get and early sprocket carrier for hte rear wheel and play around with the wheel spacers but it should work.
