    FS: 79 Honda CB750f Super Sport

    EDIT: I was recently made aware by my CB guys that I was overpriced.

    As the title states, it's a 79 cb750f super sport. Less than 11,000 miles. For anyone interested this classic is the precursor to today's crotch rocket/sport bike. The original DOHC Inline 4 in a light frame.
    The good:
    It runs great (off idle). Plenty of power and moves really good. Good condiition overall. Front tire is great. Nothing leaks. New accel pump and bowl gaskets. Carbs SPOTLESS. Just rebuilt rear master cyl. Less than 1k on new pads. CLEAN TITLE IN HAND. Front rim is perfect. Kerker 4-1 exhaust. Just repainted engine and header header (black). Slip-on in good shape, has some scratches but shiny and solid. Brand new battery. New plugs and plug wires.
    The bad:
    I can't get this thing to idle correctly. It either screams at 5k or dies. Whoever invented these carbs should be dragged around by his short and curlies. Has a rip in one carb boot. Back tire is cupped slightly. Front fender has scratch that someone fixed. Tank has 6 inch long scratch that was touched-up and cleared. Gas cap has small cracks from sun. Front rotor(s) warped. But I have a set of extras that I bought to fix it but I honestly don't feel like it anymore. I will take pictures of everything that I consider to be "bad" so you can get a good idea of what I am talking about (tomorrow)
    I'm thinking somewhere around $1200 OBO mainly because there are very few miles. I pulled the calipers off to re-pad it and it was the original white grease in there. If I'm way off, let me know. I'm just outside chicago. Will take trades up/down, working or project: Waverunner, quad, other bike, boat, hell a big tv. I'm open here.

    Please don't take this harshly - but I've been over this entire deal with the CB guys. They say the same thing. I told them I'd take the carbs off, again (which blows on this bike), take pictures of each of them so they can see they're all clear. The carbs were cleaned twice by me, and then I boiled the damn things. Trust me, I'd drink water out of the bowls and through each circuit they're so clean.

    MT - Make me an offer!
