    Most of you sound a whole lot younger than I. Almost 60. Anyway I just finished a restore on a Honda 750-4 1972 that I bought new in 1972. Anyone remember that one?

    Well in 1972 I was 5. I DO remember Old school classic bikes like that because my neighbor had them. My parents would borrow one and go ridding all weekend. My dad had a Street/Dirt bike Suzuki 250 in 1974. I have been thinkin about gettin an classic bike. My WIFE would kill me. Besides I just bought my 85 Goldwing..

    The 750-4 was a tremendous bike when it was released but the Kawasaki Z-1 became my favorite afer it hit the streets.

    I was 20 yrs. old when your 750-4 hit the streets - so I remember it very well. A fine machine, and one of the top 25 motorcycles that changed the 'face' of our sport. Please post some pictures of your 'restore'.

    Did you have any problems with finding replacement parts?

    My 76 Goldwing is awaiting a complete rebuild and I know the carbs are junk.

    I would like to put fuel injection on it after the engine is rebuilt.I put 65,000 very hard miles towing a trailer on it back in the 70's and 80's but its been in storage for 20 years now waiting .

    I have a web site I will find and send to you that has everything you will ever need to get for your GoldWing. Even a fourm of 1000s of old farts that will tell you how to do a restore. Here is a picture of my 69 that I did. When I get my 72 back from paint I will show that off too.

    Tonka -

    I was behind-the-eight-ball, and just caught your pics of the '69 restore. That is 'Beautiful' work. Please post pics when you get your
    '72 completed.

    Yeah and a Yamaha or Kaw 350 would just flat out run it. Lots of motor and no power. The Z-1 was the King until 1976 when they put the smaller carbs on it. By the way I owned a 1974 and 1975 Z-1B. I wish I had either one today.
