yours reminds me of my jap import 750FZ when i got it a couple of years ago, left fork leg full of water and many more horrors to sort out, all wheel bearings brakes etc etc but i got her up and running and i think presentable

Hi & thanks for the contact, the picture of your bike looks nice.
Yes my bike is a Jap import too, I have the bike over a year & not touched it yet, It is as the picture shows. The previous owner is a very good friend of mine so I know it is a good bike. Hopefully I will start the rebuild sometime this year.

don't make the same mistake as i did, the books i bought all said 102 main jets and mine had 75's. i put 102's in and it wouldn't rev over 5000rpm it had melted cdi's and a cracked coil so i thought it was electrical. but after trial and error i found the bike took off when the air filter cover was removed. it has a smaller air intake tube at the back of the air box , all to do with emissions in japan, and NO i am not taking those carbs off to fit the 75's i left the rectangular cover off so it can pull more air in around the side panel, goes like a rocket now. is all the writing on yours in japanese? and the frame number stamped into the head stock?

Hi Sorry for the delay, thanks for the information I am new to this Bike & will find details like that very useful when I get to start the rebuild Yes it has the Vin number on the Head stock, I do have the grab bars somewhere, but again thanks.

Found this 1991 Nighthawk buried in the bushes a year ago covered in IVY blackberries barely recognizable
It had been next to a car that caught on fire
Still need a replacement right side cover
Got it on the road just a few days ago with just over 100 miles now
Loving the new dual sport tires
Glad I chose them
I’m riding it everyday

I've been building my custom for almost a year. & half. I have torn it down started as a box of bolts, covers, casings & gears. Got a frame. And well. It seems to be one issue after another. Minor stuff. But again driving me crazy. I am a newbie at the whole build a bike. But turning wrench. I am not. Anyway... I love the look of how raw the motor is. Unlike all the new chopper BS. I've got it pretty complete. Was hoping to get some pointers. Possibly an over all Critique.( I can take it.!) Don't want to bring it to a small vintage show. Then hear laughs. Don't think I did to bad for my first.

I love the look of the sohc engine as well. Have fun with that jockey shift! If you have any sohc motor specific questions feel free to hit me up.

Current have 7 CB750s. 1970 1971 1975 1976 x3 and an anniversary edition 1979. Two have been completed and very drivable and 3 are in the midst of restoration and 2 are just for parts.
Here is pic of the 1971 find in storage bin with less than 6k miles and my recently painted 1976 and the 1979 LE
