750 sport

Post by Kmamac »

Oh what have I gone and done now? Some may recall I have a 906 paso. Well I had the chance to pick up another project (a man cannot have too many projects - right?) so picked up this 750:sport. Not even sure I like 16 inch wheels!!!!!!
Anyway, a few things wrong. No carb (picked up a 750 mikuni on eBay so happy about that) no ignition units ( not sure what they are) assume there’s a pickup (or two under the cover) only one coil. No switchgear ( same as later 750/900ss and early monster?) Brake and clutch levers go all the way back so need a refurb. Missing a rear exhaust from rear facing port to cross over- assume its same as later 750 s.
Good bits - it was cheap. Front forks have had something done by maxton. Nice after market exhausts ( maybe conti)
Have two routes with this one. Option one. Just get it and running but this will mean committing to x2 new Shinko/golden tyres. Option 2, total refurb, fancy ignition , new forks with 17 wheels etc etc. Could be a nice sexy TT 2 style hybrid.
Anyway, there’s a few questions in the post and the opportunity to give me your opinion on what I should \could do.
