    Quoting Far Canal on 16 Sep 2020 11:59 PM


    Ready to button up the sevenfiddyfour motor. New primary and cam chains, 9 new bearings in the gearbox. Cylinder block has been bored out to take 836cc pistons.

    Misaligned and badly coloured engine/transmission case support block, the table is not aligned with the edge of the photo, a completely out of place blue box in the bottom left hand corner of the picture not to mention the dodgy looking trestles.
    I'd expect better presentation from someone with a fine arts degree, 6.5/10.

    Seriously though, you're obviously pretty handy Far Canal, I don't think I'd be brave enough to be pulling that apart.

    Interesting... So is the Transmission ALWAYS driven and the clutch works on the output to the rear wheel.  Sort of the opposite to a HArley.

    I know nothing about them (Honda 750/4 ) but had friends who road them, & a guy who has been riding one, for ages & drag racing it. his one is one of the early offering & has one of those kits (860 ) but thats all I know, it looks really small and compact skinny wheels front & rear. the owner is built the same. He knows that bike well I've never seen him ride anything else ( I've gone through four Harleys in the time I've known him ) it can surprise you! he told me once the best time he has done on it & was a quick time even in todays standards. Last time I saw him on it at track was running high 11's ( as he road it on the street )

    They looked so good last time you posted a picture of them.
    By no way am I an expert on painting but you would have to assume they were wrapped up before the paint had completely hardened.

    Hahaha! good for you JD, Nice to see a sense of humor in these strange times.

    "I don't think I'd be brave enough to be pulling that apart."
    I have been meaning to pull this one apart ever since I bought it about 10 years ago because it uses oil, leaks oil and blows smoke. Aside from that it has been really fun to ride, seems to keep just charging on regardless.
    Since the covid thing, well heeled millionaires from around the world have no longer been able to jet set into the state I live in and beg me to swap my artwork for huge piles of cash(they don't usually ask for fries by the way) So the time is ripe.

    I enjoy the humour on this forum and love a bit of good natured banter whichever way it's flowing, hopefully the new update doesn't ruin that. I'm glad you took my shit stirring in the spirit it was intended.
    Good luck with the 750 four engine, I hope you don't find any bolts left over when it's back together and it fires up and goes well for you.

    FC Church nah, you go to the Motorcycle Rememberance Faction.
    Had 6 750 /4s loved everyone of them, sometimes, err maybe twice on interstate trips two up, would throw dude off at destination, to do his bussiness, the ride around the joint as I always have done, to know all the area, and as chain fucken stretch, and load not there I throw the fucken casing twice. Use thin copper plate and great god 'Araldite'. Saved my arse in WA and Southern Victoria.I was dumb no doubt, probably still on that scale. But riding a 750 Honda Four was like riding a stable platform. Though only had K1, a few K2s and K3, only.Wanted the 750/Four 0, but bought an XS1-650. fuck.

    Mr Wow are you gonna have a crack at polishing all that out? The scratches and orange peel should be possible - no idea about the cloudiness. 
    If it were me (and you had to fix it yourself) Meguiars Ultimate compound with one of those polishing attachments for your cordless drill would be a start.

    Nah it’s pretty fckd to be honest, the blooming has spread in the last few days, it’s all over the place, there’s a big hair 30mm long) right across the top of the fender as well. the tank didn’t have the seam that runs down the middle filled so there’s a massive divot Right. In. The. Middle... 
    I’ve got another painter lined up who’s going to strip the lot and redo it. Life’s too short to fck around.

    Haha yeah we did! Was a great show, not this year though!

    Big Steve, love the colour mate. Good luck with the recovery. Watch them pipes pulling out of driveways, best mates got the same pipes but slightly shorter and scrubs easy if not careful, but they sound and look great.

    They are some long pipes - would keep the noise well away from your ears.
    Bike colour is a nice rich dark.
