Since March 2015 I’ve had a 1975 Honda CB750 Super Sport I purchased on Craigslist for $500. It had a current registration, one blown piston, and a completely disassembled top end. The disassembly reduced the going price by 75% making it an incredible deal. Like all impulsive people, I purchased it right away, the same day that the seller posted his ad.
I’d never rebuilt a motorcycle before. I’d never even changed oil in a car before.
About halfway through the engine rebuild, I decided to start to document my efforts. I may never do this again, and I wanted a record of this construction so I can go back and maybe one day read my thoughts.
