LOL tell me about it, Im sure I havent got enough to even meet a reserve, but I might have to try

Im looking for a chop after this weekend, trike sells for 720, someone gave me 200 today that they owed me YAY, got 40 in my wallet, and a JD bottle in my bedroom with about 65 of 5 pence pieces

I would be very happy to own that bike, mudguard needs adjusting but its got such great lines and shape, looks rock hard and business like.

Default ebay chop.

i too have a chop for sale and i am based in devon!, plymouth to be exact.
trouble is i want more than a grand, more like 1300. its a cb750/4. hardtailed 73 stock frame, k7 motor with new rings and pistons, 40inch drag bars, harley sportster tank, wire wheels, s.s battery case etc. not advertised it cos am not fussed weather i sell it or not , plus i have photos of start to finish of project. note 1300 is the absolute minumum as i have 6inch overs to go on front so price will go up to around 1600 anyway. my pride and joy .if i am laid off soon it will go, if i keep my job i keep the bike, simple!. regards, mick.

Won't ride it far without a chain.

Frankly, I don't like it. I think if you looked at it a little longer, you might not either.

Things like the way the engine sits in the frame, and the rear mudguard sits over the tyre?

Upper rear engine mount? Got one?

Why no head steady? Hit the newly painted tank does it?

Side stand? Is that, "I've had the frame powder coated and forgot to get a side stand bracket welded to it beforehand"?

Is it registered?

Usually with an XS650 where the engine sprocket is that far from the rear sprocket (and that is pretty far...) the chain will thrash around like a snake with epilepsy.

But hey! It's your hard earned money....

ok so a reality kick in the balls LOL

yeah Blackjack as normal your pefectly right, its one of them, its unfinished for a reason bikes LOL

yes mudguard needs sorting, engine does sit kinda high in the frame.

I thikn it was one of them, ooooh that looks smart, I totally agree with you, its an oilpainting bike, or what we call stand off scale, looks smart until you really start to look at it

Mick I will keep you in mind, my trike made 800 in the end, so Im now probably looking to spend something like 1100-1200, might drop you a message at some time for a couple of pics.
