Description
Gonna start by showing everyone with interest in the bike by presenting a video taken by one of my riding buddies the other day on the freeway and in the streets of Columbus, Ohio. A preview to the video below the next. Copy and paste to your browser;

'80 Honda CB750 Cafe Racer Clear Clean Title in hand.
Beautiful bike runs good and strong! Starts right up on the first push of the starter button. A single key operates the ignition and gas cap latch. Clutch is good and goes through the gears. Inside of tank is extremely clean, looks almost new internally.
New LED Headlight w/integrated turn signalsNew Mikuni CarbsNew Pingel Fuel Petcock custom fitted to the tank to provide more fuel to the carbsNew Lithium Lightweight BatteryNew Michelin Scorcher 31's Harley Davidson edition TiresNew Grips to tie in with the color of the slightly used seatNew GPS based Analog Speedometer/Digital ODONew fork seals and Fork OilLED Brake Light and rear Turn Signals
Things to consider that need replaced/addressed;
Relocating rectifier for better cooling (it's currently under the seat)
Turn signals stay lit at all times and work as marker lights, flash just fine when switch is used, but you may want to wire them so they are only on when in use. I think it looks cool the way it is and gives more visibility.
Slight oil leak from stator cover. Needs a new gasket. You can actually make one out of a cereal box and there are a few OEM ones on Ebay for cheap. They stopped production on them long ago, but it's literally just a piece of thin cardboard.
Rear muffler "baffle" rattles a bit because the spot weld broke (not a big deal just wanted to mention). This would be the little metal outlet cap at the very end of the exhaust for clarification.
When coming to a stop I sometimes need to blip the throttle to get the rpms to come down, may be an idle adjustment
When I ordered the carbs I mistakenly told them the bike had a stock exhaust which it does not, so you may want to re-jet the carbs with larger jets. Bike runs great but lags a bit on the top end.
May want to consider shortening the front brake line. Front brake occasionally squeaks. There is a good amount of pad.  Keep in mind you are stopping a 500lb. bike on a single disc. I have never had any issues stopping.
One of the threads used to bolt the exhaust manifold to the block was damaged by the previous owner. Looks like a small amount of jbweld was used to "fix"it. Does not seem toleak after many miles of riding in the hot weather but I wanted to make the prospective buyer aware.
Compression was recently tested and was good but not perfect 130/130/105/130  True Mileage Unknown says 35k non-actual miles on the title but there is no way of knowing since the odometer isn't original. Bike is very clean for it's age despite some scratches and wear here and there with a small ding on the tank.
With everything being said I can ride this bike all day and have. Bike sounds so so mean, I get compliments ALL the time on the way it sounds and looks, even from Harley guys ;) It really sounds sweet! It's super fun to ride and looks awesome going down the highway.
   I offer no warranties, returns or refunds. It   is being sold as-is. If you have any questions please ask BEFORE bidding or make arrangements to come see it in person. I take alot of pride in my reputation on Ebay and I represent everything in my listings exactly as I see it. Located in Gahanna, Oh. 43230 a suburb of CoIumbus. I appreciate your interest!
