Thanks. Still have a long way to go to get it where I want it (VG, but not quite EX cond).
I wanted to confirm that the engine didn't have any major issues before spending any amount of time and money on it.
Looks like I'm good to go.
I'm glad that's the case! Good luck with the project, and please don't forget to update us on your progress.
Though they're not scramblers, I've seen a few CB500/CB750 Four from the 70's listed on my local Craigslist that I'm so tempted to pick up for a weekend project. The only thing keeping me is their high asking prices, since a lot of people are picking these up and turning them into cafe racers at the moment. I'd much prefer to keep everything as original as possible... There's just a nostalgic elegance to these bikes in the way they're originally designed that it'd be a shame to convert them into a cafe racer, especially if done poorly.
