Default '74 Honda Cb750 Super 4 w/ 4 in to 1 Exhaust

So as the topic says, I've got a bit of a gem sitting here. If anyone knows where to find a manual for this particular model that'd be great. Like it says, its a 74 super4 750 with a 4 in to 1 stock exhaust. it's in rough shape though and needs some tlc, but documentation for this particular model seems hard to come by. any ideas?

79-83 if I recall correctly for the DOHC 750.

Nice bike though.

Although I do see pod filters. He might want to surf the junkyards and see if he can find a stock airbox. That alone might solve most of the problems.

You can get on-line with Clymer publicaitons who has most all make & model motorcycle repair manuals. The CB750F was no big deal, just a standard 750 with a different seat/tank/pipe setup. Watch out for seizing brake calipers.

That's not a 750 engine in the chassis in these pics, it's a 900. He's currently prepping an 1100 to stick in before spring.

Are the dimensions of the 750 engine different than the 900 engine? Is the block wider or is it just punched out? I keep looking at that picture. I don't know what it is, but it looks a little "off".

The 900 had a longer stroke and a visibly taller engine. I don't think it would fit on a 750 frame without mods.
