    It's a bit late for that. It'd be a coupla years since I saw an article in a Brit mag saying that the 750s were too expensive at that stage. They recommended looking for a CB500 which would be cheaper and was, in their opinion, a better bike.

    Unless you had a 750/4 when you were 16 & wanted another, in which case anything else is not a replacement.
    HDC & I both paid 5k for our K2's in fair useable condition recently. I don't think that was too much at all.

    Ah but I had the 500 so obviously I agreed with them. Also I don't think the bikes they were talking about would have been had for the equivalent of $5,000.

    Just a quick look at the MCN classifieds: https://www.motorcyclenews.com/bikes...e/honda/cb750/

    I had to wash my eyes out after looking at that first one.
    The fortunate part of my 750/4 was that I actually wanted a black one with flat bars & a loud four into one, just like i had in the olden days. They also come a bit cheaper than one with factory paint & pipes, so it was win win.

    Until he piled it into the side of a 16L Galant one Friday night.

    You can have the set.6K buys you a lot of Galant.

    DeMyer's Laws - an argument that consists primarily of rambling quotes isn't worth bothering with.

    we had a bike called Dragula in wanganui, it was a a new SOHC 750 that was hot rodded to fuck, none of this lets turn it into a streetfighter after it's been crashed, barry smith tricked it out, and then it sold through the town for years, often think of trying to track it down but my shed's too full already.
    it sounded like no other bike on the planet in it's day

    No no, it was this model.
    Some shit you just never forget.
    And the crabby old A&E doctor that abused me for having a motorbike & sent me home with a serious knee injury that still bugs me in winter.

    $6k is about right for that Galant in that condition. They are just not around anymore. Shame it's the auto though.

    Bro in law had a Galant like that, but with a P76 motor, 5 speed Toyota box and a Valiant LSD rear axle. Same colour, too.
    Got along quite well.
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.
    those cheap ass bitches can do anything with ductape.

    Blue, noisy, in Lower Hutt? If so, I ran into him one day. Quite an eye-opener it was...
    The best way to forget all your troubles is to wear tight underpants.

    Yes, to all that. Got sold to someone in Napier (IIRC) and wrapped around a pole shortly afterward.

    I too had a 750 in my yoof. My 2nd bike, after an RD350. Many fond memories chasing mates on Kawasaki 500s. Had a purple/pink lace paint job on the tank. Cooler than cool in 1976-7. Had all the good stuff - ace bars, 4:1, open carbs with stacks, Isky cam, golden rods, and honda 350/2 pistons(888cc).
    I have absolutely no desire to go there again.

    My 250LC I had in Perth. . . . . I would definitely go there again
