No, not a real one!

Can you see it?

Memories relived and revived.

17 (ish) years ago I bought a CB750 chop... 15 years ago the cam sprocket came loose, damaging 8 of the 16 valves and seizing the engine.

Recently I bought a working cylinder head off  a well known auction site for £110, which, is amazingly cheap as it comes with everything I need to get the old thing going again (hopefully!)

I've removed the head and block and discovered the cam chain had pinched itself down by the main drive. This I rectified and now it's just(!) a case of cleaning, smoothing, polishing and then putting everything back!

Here's a photo of it in action...

...and here's a pic of it with seat, carbs most wiring and head off...

More pics and news on the revival of this old monster to come!
