1975 Honda CB750 (Good, Cheap Project Starting Point)

I found this somewhat beat-upon CB750 on eBay and was noticing that although it would make a great start for a cafe racer build, the seller won’t ship. So, if you live within driving distance of St. Louis, MO, then read on…

The bike is quite ratty on the surface, but some of the important bits are not too bad. First off, seller claims clear title. Second, low miles at 12K. Third, mufflers with baffles are stock. Fourth, motor turns over. Fifth, tank is clean. (All of which are seller claims)

Only bad news is a stuck throttle and rust. The price is right with a low starting point, although there are still 6 days left and already the bike has bidding activity. The seller has 100% positive feedback score (apparently he sells used bats from MLB games), so it appears to be a pretty safe purchase. Good luck to anyone who bids!
