    Post a pic of your latest purchase

    What a cool drill, Jimbo. Do you know the year of manufacture? By the way, did you know that they speak English in Ontario? You will have to get a boat, lots of great boating there, pretty place too.

    1982 CB750F...Better Devil

    Carb issues can be so frustrating. I learned not too long ago that I was reading plugs wrong, once again I am late to the party. Your bike still looks great.

    Parking at Barber Vintage Festival

    A few days ago a friend of mine hit a bear on one of those. Some good bruises and damage to the trike but he didn't go down. The bear ran off leaving a mess of bear scat on the machine.

    I had that impression that the Colortune could only be used for idle mixtures but you used it for higher rpms. I think I am going to get one.

    1978 CB750 F2 SOHC - Carb issue

    I forget how it is set up on your bike but if you can run the engine with the points cover off and see the mechanical advance, then raise the rpm, watch the weights move and make sure they move back to the original position after you let the engine return to idle (or it's high idle). You should...

    Is it because you widened the frame?
