Many thanks, Joe. The very one thing that MO did not need was that battered, orange rally bike with issues.



The rust, alone, must have been a significant deterrent to your purchase.



Now you've got to remove that ugly orange batter, too.



We anticipate your forthcoming rally posts.

Good recovery, MO.



Timely, and no need for Photoshop retractions.

Default Really bumbed out

I was really looking forward to that restoration article.

I have a CB750 in my garage that I need to start working on and I could have used the help.

Yea I have to say that I am not pleased.

I think common sense grabbed Gabe by the throat on this one. We all get those moments.

Decided on what your project 750 is going to be yet?

I think my project may be going the way of Gabe's. I have a buyer, and my mind is wandering to other projects, like possibly boosting the Busa, or doing a frame up resto on the 82 FLH, OR I have a really good line on a mint 79 CBX at the moment. So many decisons!

I've got an '84 Magna that would make a great project. Many many happy hours could be spent restoring this gem of engineering.

I've seldom seen an old bike that I didn't have the desire to restore. Fortunately an '84 Magna doesnÂ’t fall into that category.

Old Japanese UJMs in need of restoration are like the FruitCakes of the motorcycling world; Something someone gives you and you keep it until you are able to pawn it off on some unsuspecting fool.



BTW, anyone interested in a 1981 Yamaha XJ650? It's all there, some parts in boxes and will run (I think). Probably just needs a good carb cleaning and a new battery.

Maybe Emma Lazarus said it best:



"Rebuild your tired, your poor, your leaking cycles yearning to breath free, the rusting masses of your teaming shore, send these the bent and smoking messes to me, I lift my wrench besides the golden door, but only after drinking six or seven beers more."
