1978 CB 750K veteran to veteran deal. THE DEAL IS DONE AND IT IS FREE!

I have a rocket scientist friend that is moving to Florida as he is nearing retirement and would like to make sure his bike goes to a fellow veteran.
It is really clean, but need a little mechanical love.

From him:
Hi Budman
The bike needs some work; engine gaskets, rear brake, flasher, high beam blows a fuse, 3rd carb sticks and overflows sometimes draining from the overflow to the ground.

On the upside; tank, side panels, exhaust pipes all look really good. I replaced the pipes with new and had the tank and side panels repainted a few years ago.
I just want it to have a good home, and if anybody can find that I believe itís you.

If your a veteran and interested PM me.

That is really cool that he is offering it to a veteran.

Hope it finds a good home.

A can’t pass on it on. Holding back to confirm veteran status.
It will require some verification.

Well, as a veteran I do appreciate the gesture.

I'd jump for the offer but have enough project bikes for now... and awhile.
Jeez... the non-project running bikes keep me busy enough.

He is a barfer and reached out to me with a special deal and I felt this warranted me following though with it vs him having to deal while he is moving and traveling for launches.

Forgive my arrogance.

I figured someone would say something and then I would attack them with imperial impunity

Bud's house. We're the guests, deal with it. Period.

Re: "needs gaskets"
If there is oil coming from the left front corner of the engine between the fins where the head and cylinder meet, this is a common malady of 70s sohc 4s. Head gasket and oil passage o ring right there fail from the heat cycling.

on the other hand, justice is not absolute. there have been exceptions made in the past and we will again in the future. as the person that fought hardest for this rule i recognize it has shortcomings, particularly in the cases where someone needs to sell a bike but isn't necessarily internet saavy enough to follow through with supporting the ad on BARF, let alone deal with the bullshit on craigslist and the like.

the ones i recall involved a widow trying to get rid of her late husband's classic car, BARF member being BFF with the deceased

another where a barfer was in the hospital unlikely to ride ever again, and another barfer wished to facilitate the sale.

i didn't approve this personally but then again, budman doesn't need my ok and this would be a no-brainer to give the green light anyway.

so, if you find ads that violate the "if it ain't yours don't sell it here" rule, hit the report button and add a brief description. on the whole i believe the rule is more helpful than harmful to the barf community. i welcome criticism of the rules however, and if you wish to discuss this further feel free to PM me or start a thread in geek speak about it.

that said, it's time to turn off the tangent topics and let this FOR SALE ad run it's course. <that would be an official mod request btw.

There was a little more to it than just selling for a friend. That seller was banned from BARF.
