Sneek Peek

Well alrighty then.

Having finished the body work and painting, replacing the throttle cables, adjusting the float level, valves, removing and cleaning the cam chain tensioner, and slapping in a new battery… I fired it up last weekend and took a spin around the block. I limped home on three cylinders to find that the #1 spark plug was loose and the #1 and #3 plug wire caps were loose. Replaced the plugs and repaired the caps and tried it again with great success! Some hesitation on acceleration and still a little rough idling, so next will be cleaning the carbs this week to include a carb synch. This means that I get to build a manometer! Will post a how-to and some pics when I do it. In the mean time, here’s a sneek peek at the CB750 as it currently stands!
