Info: This is the first bike i ever bought. I dropped it once on each side the first time out. It has been a royal pain since i bought it, but i´m obsessed with having a triple so i keep working on it.

Purchased: Apr 2005
Info: Was offered this bike and the 1982 CB450 Nighthawk for $200 (for the pair). I couldn´t pass it up. I´ve been wanting a CB750 for some time. The instant my wife saw it, she claimed it as her own. Since she didn´t kill me when she saw it, i figured it was only fair.

Purchased: Jun 2005
Info: Purchased this to replace my CM400T when i sold that. It was my daily rider for the summer of 2005.*** Recently cracked the crankcase, and so it will be getting an engine out of a CM450 and probably a chop job.*** Update:04-11-06 - This weekend i started in with the sawzall. This CB400 will be a CM450 bobber when iīm finished.

Info: My latest purchase. Bought it mostly to ride to work. Figured it would get in the neighborhood of 100 MPG once tuned up, and i can park it on the sidewalk (and not pay parking). I rode is this whole last week. Paid $400 for it.

Info: This was my daily rider, last year I was run off the road by a cager and did some damage to it, but i got it back up and running. You can see the dent in the tank on th left side (which is why it got the nice skull stencil. I was planning to do some more work towards turning it into a cafe racer, but the clutch started slipping & i didnīt get it fixed. Then it was having trouble shifting into 2

Purchased: Dec 2004
Sold: Sep 2006
Info: I just bought this bike December 2004. What it boils down to is that the price was right and i couldnīt pass it up. Itīs already had a good amount of work done towards a cafe racer conversion, and a little more on my part should have it in good shape. Hoping that itīll be finished by summer.<br> So i got tired of looking at this thing. I''d tried to sell it a few times, and had no luck

Sold: Jul 2004
Info: 1980 Yamaha XS 850SG I bought this one as a parts bike after laying down the other one. Figured itīd be cheaper to get the few parts i needed off of it and then part it out or resell it. Plus, i thought i could use the crash bar on my 750, but i was mistaken. After picking it up, i had second thoughts. Now iīm thinking about getting it running again, or selling it to a friend so he can get it run

Info: With the city on my back about too many "junker" motorcycles in the driveway, i had to thin out the herd. I´d received an offer for $200 sight unseen for this one, so i emailed the guy and said "get it by Monday and it´s yours." He was a mechanical engineering major, and made the 6 hour trip in a borrowed Jeep Cherokee the next day to pick it up. We got it jammed i

Sold: Aug 2005
Info: This bike needed an alternator, which is quite an ordeal with this bike. After having it take up room in my garage for a number of months i decided that i would probably never get around to fixing it. Then i found out that in MN i couldn´t use a title service to get a title for it anyway, so i parted it out.

Info: Iīve been obsessed with triples since i bought my first bike (a Yamaha triple). Iīd been keeping my eye out for either a Kawasaki or Suzuki 2-stroke triple. When i found an ad for this project bike, i offered the guy $450 and took it home the first day of June. It needs some minor work, and then itīll be on the road.

Info: It was a sad, sad day... but i realized that this bike was just more than i really bargained for. I really wanted a BSA, but i wasn''t sure i was ready to be that intimately aquainted with the internals of a British engine, so i sold it & all the BSA parts i bought to go with it.
