    Yamiya

    Anyone have experience with Yamiya body sets? Thinking about buying tank/side covers. Sent some inquiries about fit and finish replies from Japan not very clear. Are they and exact fit not requiring any modifications to fuel valve, side cover grommets, etc?

    '79 CB750F Super Sport / Engine Finish

    The engine of my restoration functions well, and all it needs is to recover its original shine. This is the silver-painted version, but I'm not interested in re-painting; can I soda-blast the engine as a unit ? ( engine has been removed from frame ). All openings ( exhausts, carbs, etc ) have...

    79 LTD Paint Color

    Need a small amount of touch-up paint for the top portion of the tank. Believe one of the colors is R-104C-U Candy muse red, however, I think this is the lighter red color. Can't seem to find code or color for the darker tank top. Appreciate any help. Tanks!

    pinstripe removal

    Hello, new member here recently purchased 1976 cb750. The previous owner carelessly used a pressure washer on the tank and damaged the pinstriping. My question is has anyone successfully removed the pinstriping without damaging the paint? My thought was a 3m decal erasure. thanks in advance

    (How to) Repair Cracked Side Covers

    Just sharing.... Awhile back I read a comment about fixing cracked side covers with JB Weld. Well, it works great.

    Does this color look correct ?

    So I bought this 75 CB750 online, not having actually seen it in person. Finally got it home to my garage last night. I knew it had been repainted, but in the photos I saw it looked accurate. In person, I can't remember ever seeing a candy Honda color with such large sparkly metal flake...
