I got one of the welding tutors at a college near Leith to weld crankcases for me for next to nothing :D Used it as a demo for students i think. He was on the http://www.mig-welding.co.uk site as "Runnach". Might be worth an ask :wink:

CB750/4 K2 1974 IN CANDY GOLD :D

Bike had been used as test machine by UK importer when new and motor had/has weird sensor mounts attached to it, later blocked off by brass bolts through the cases :roll: Was going to do full resto on it as cosmetically V Good apart from engine case issue but now just going for roadworthy rebuild 8) Speedo shows around 4,000mls although that's largely irrelevant as motor stripped for rebuild.

Brass bolty bits on upper case......

Welder chappy filled in 'oles where bolts sat.

Was going to go full hog but current plan just to get it together again, canny be ersed polishing things to death :lol: so much to do so little time etc......

Picked up a 4into 1 pipe for it - looks like a Piper/Alfa thing ie straight approx 3" diameter jobby so it should sound interesting enough :wink:

Had similar pipe on Z1000J many years ago - GROWL :D Holed a piston and replaced with 4/1 Neta after that - just wasn't the same :cry:
