Finally, got grandpa's bike home

I got grandpa's bike home. It has been in his garage for 22 years. It is a 1978 Honda CB750 with the F2 motor. Also has a racing kit in it. Plan on cleaning the carbs, cleaning the tank (he put it away with a full tank), new brakes, rebuild calipers, and really clean it. Pictures are not the best though. The tank and seat are off so it looks funny.

Im sure that gas destroyed the carb, petcock & tank. We had a guy that let his Harley sit for 6 years and brought it into the shop and it was a complete disaster, everything was tarnished. It spent 5 days in the Ultra Sonic Cleaner.


Nice bike, good luck! Keep it in between the ditches!

Oh, you have no idea how bad it is inside the tank and the bowls. Grandpa put it away with a nice full tank of gas. Thanks grandpa. And when I am down with the bike, I don't even get to drive it.

Why are you not going to get to ride it?
