    Owner Ed Fargo had this to say about the bike:

    It started life as a 1979 CB750F sitting in the back room of a motorcycle salvage yard. It needed a better life. The motor was frozen, but it had good bones. The glass is from Airtech Streamlining (supposedly from the original Honda racing molds). The ride is period correct with the exception of the motor. I have raced and rebuilt many vintage bikes and this one can be seen running at Road Atlanta in April and September, 2013 in the Historic Moto Gran Prix (the only electric).

    Specs:
    • 160 LifePo4 Lipo batteries
    • 106 Volts DC
    • 80HP Brushed DC motor
    • 1000 amps (yes really)
    • 100% torque at zero RPM
    • No Transmission

    Originally 540 Lbs, now 380 Lbs.

    Love it or hate it, it is a FUN ride.

    Best thing I could say would be 75-115 on pod jetting and the exhaust must WORK rather than just being cosmetic and the engine must be well sealed too

    You are talking death with the valve opinion you have there. Without a compression test you have zero idea of how the valves are, these burn them much

    F and K have different valve train, valves will not interchange. The 78K valves are oddballs, only year they did it. They are same size as the previous
