My Doc Marten’s on the back, Bill’s desert boots on the front. On his CB750 along the Ohio River in Southern Indiana today. Just before the rain came.

Bill bought his first moto from a local guy who happened to be fairly dishonest about the shape of said moto and more specifically it’s engine, and the title.

"Great daily driver" tends to mean "You’ll find out how much work this needs after you ride it for a few weeks and it vomits gas everywhere."

The title was an easy fix thanks to the fact that Bill lives in the great state of Indiana, where having a nice Hollywood smile and $15 can get you a new title without much effort, other than the smiling and the willingness to shell out $15 instead of spending it on a pizza.

Anyway…. he decided that he’s work on bicycles in a professional setting, if you can call Clarksville Schwinn professional, so a full carb overhaul couldn’t be too bad.

And he was right.. he’s rolling right along without a single issue other than shelling out the cash for all the parts. 

Who knew my kitchen table would finally come in handy?

The bike is a 1980 CB750C. The nicest thing on this bike will be the carbs, other than that, it’s fairly ratty, but in one piece. And I mean “ratty” in a nice way.
