Default just got 1970 cb750

Hello, i have recently purchased a 1970 CB750. It is together all but the engine, though i do have the engine and every single original part from the bike. In addition i got an extra engine and numerous other parts from CB750's from the '69 to '76 models. The bike is in good condition and was wondering if I should assemble this bike or sell it for parts... dont know what its worth but i didnt pay very much.... Thank you

Expensive proposition, to complete the bike. However, there are quite a few resources out there to help, as this bike has a very large following.

I'd hate to see the bike "broken up" and sold-off; If you should decide not to restore it, I urge you to sell it en-masse' to an enthusiast that will.

It's hard to say whether you'll "get more" from the bike complete or as parts. The time you have to put-into it to obtain top-dollar for each individual part might actually equal-out to a lower net return, than just selling it as a "needs-restoration runner", or just selling it outright as it sits.
