WOW, Wayne !  Thanks for doing this !  This bike really is quite remarkable !  I am impressed with the high degree of polish  the eng.cases have.  Still don't see bike on ebay..........

No problem Steve. These were a MUST for the site! I too was excited to see the high degree of polish on the engine covers as that is how I decided to do the covers on 576. I'll be going over these images with a fine tooth comb in the coming months. :) Sure wish I could see this bike first hand and photograph every nook and cranny that is of interest to me. :)

Thank you, Steve for locating the bike and Wayne for uploading the awesome photos.  It really is nice to see.  I am not sure if the tank and covers have been repainted.  They appear to have orange peel on them as seen in some of the photos.

Does the rear fender look restored to you?  From the rear seat edge forward I'd expect to see belt sander marks.  I think I can see some blemishes from the wire grommet forward so perhaps it's just the camera angle.

Joe. I'm glad the seller posted fairly high resolution images. They didn't display that large in their gallery however when I downloaded them I realized they were pretty nice high quality, large images so I felt the best way was to post them without any software so they could be viewed full size through your browser. For you not so web savvy folks, if your mouse pointer turns into a magnifying glass just click and the pic will zoom to full size. Another click takes it back to fit your screen.

Joe, I too noted some orange peel. On the tank in image number 16, and VERY evident on the headlamp bucket around the top screw in image number 18. Still lots to look at in detail to assist in restoring 576! :)

I didn't get any suspicion from what the seller told me about the deceased, the bike had ever been painted after it left the factory.  The seller himself did not know the bike existed until earlier this week and was expecting, according to what the widow said, to look at a Hondamatic.  Seller said the bike was VERY well covered and appeared to not have been disturbed for what looked decades.   The seller owns KO's; he's familiar with CB750's.  He seems like an aware guy, his description after he saw the bike and before he had pictures, of the bike being original and clean matched the pictures he sent  a day later after his description, so i would trust what he is saying, since the bike's not his and he's selling it for another person in his town.   Apparently the deceased kept all dealer receipts for service and parts including the non-Honda synchronizer.  An owner who saves receipts saves receipts out of pride, so i'd be surprised if this bike was replainted.  The owner put the long chain guard on to deflect oil.  Seems to me the owner wanted the newet and the best parts and accessory updates for his pride and joy.

I am sure they are telling the truth about the history of the bike.  The orange peel sure seems strange though.  ???

Wayne,  I was able to click on the images and see them all in great detail.  Just an amazing bike.  I think the bike it worth over $40,000.  Hopefully we can see that happen.

What do ya'll know about the Bowman vaccum gauge system. Cool little ditty. Looks like he reused the drain hoses off the carb bowls.
The ground down left foot peg rubber must be a personal preference, with only 4865 miles.
Pic #21 shows the clutch cable right on top of the speedo. I hate that the cable lays there.
I see that little oil seapage between the head and the cylinders. Pretty typical. Even with only 4865 miles.

I think you may find that the early bikes didn't have drain hoses fitted. I'm not sure when they started fitting them but early bikes had no drain hoses as far as I understand Chris R or Steve may be able to clarify this.

I agree w/ KP.  I've never seen overflow hoses fitted to a sandcast.   Nor were the hoses listed in sandcast era parts books.  I remember a few things owning 4779, from back in the day; being aghast, watching one of the bowls puke gas on to the hot engine.  Must not have been an overflow hose on 4779 or else i would not remember this happening.

Does everyone agree that the finish looks original, untouched?  I would have said they looked too shiny but that's why I'm asking.

I think they are just the way they left the factory. Trying to decide on the aluminum parts finish has almost driven me to drink...a lot! :) It wasn't until I found a good original spot on my alternator cover and stripped the clear was I convinced either way on what is or isn't "correct" for 576. Under some of my original clear it was evident that the cover had a fairly high polish to it. I have experimented and am able to match it pretty good so I'm going with it. It will definitely be reflective (no pun intended) of the covers shown on this bike.

How's this for a theory: We have heard of and seen examples of parts with a fairly high reflective finish. Even the NOS parts Riccardo sent me pic's of I could see his reflection in the part. We have also heard/seen of parts with a more "brushed" look. Could it be that early on Honda was indeed polishing the aluminum pieces however as a result the clear coat delaminated easily causing some customer satisfaction issues? Perhaps with later bikes they went with a more "brushed" finish so the clear would stick better? Just throwing it out there as 576 parts are clearly polished under the original, old and yellowing clear.

BTW, I KNEW you were going to ask that question! ;)

i believe this bike's finishes are unmolested and not modified in any way.  Comparing to and having seen Andy Dixon's #175 confirms my belief.

I like your theory Wayne.  Fortunately, I guess, I've been too busy to "finish" up my covers and get them clear coated.  I'm going to rethink what I'm going to do.

WRT carb float bowl drain tubes, a 1971 parts list reference exists which quotes 1029794 as being the VIN at which these were fitted, so definitely no sandcasts with them from the factory.

Reserve over 35k?  We might see a no sale and a re-list with a lower reserve.  That or the individual at 34.9k may get an offer after the auction ends.  Course with over 3 days left the 40k predictions could come true. 

I'm working on a visit with an individual that has a cb750 in the 4000 vin range here in Colorado Springs.  I'm not in the market just would like to varify that he indeed has a sandcast.  If anyone wants me to put him in contact with you as a potential buyer let me know in a PM.  He knows he has something of value so an appropriate offer will be in order.  Chris.

Reserve was met, highest bid 35,099. People pulled their bids. Guess they just wanted to see what the reserve was.  :-\ I call BS on that tactic. If I were the seller I would be pissed. I would pull the listing and set the reserve higher. Now everyone knows the ballpark in which to "snipe" near the end of the auction.

Agree 100% with Wayne.  That bike does not deserve bullshit bidding.  Nor does the recently widowed owner.  Only the ignorant could accuse the seller for "salting the mine."  The seller is a man of integrity.  He could have bought that bike for himself for far less, but chose instead to post it on ebay for the widow, because, as seller told me, "I could not live with my conscience if i had bought that bike for less than it's worth, no matter had i kept it for myself or resold it."  The auction's been sabotaged.  If auction runs to it's end, the actual value will not be known, because sniping will occur.  Were auction mine, i'd pull the plug at the first bidding violation.  We've recorded less than 380 machines known to exist.  I only know of one other in such fine original condition and it sold 2 years ago for $41,000 plus.  This bike will not go down in value, only up.

This will all work out well in the end.  A good amount of money for the widow and a good selling price to help bolster and solidify the value for all Sandcasts.

I'm with Wayne and Steve on this one - BS tactics. Maybe bidder collusion on this one to keep the price as low as possible. fleabay ought to take a harder line on that retraction crap. But of course if the high bidder doesn't pay and leaves the seller hanging, the seller has to start over or take next highest bid. There's some real squirrels out there. We'll see.

Post by: chrisnoel on May 10, 2013, 07:19:02 AM
It's worth what it sells for in the end. That said, pulling bids is an underhanded way to find out the reserve.  This is e-bay just letting the public run their auction site instead of doing anything on behalf of their sellers.  As for snipers, that is just good bidding instead of driving up the price.  The person who bids with the price willing to pay in mind cant get sniped unless the sniper is willing to pay more.  Know this... If I'm watching an item you better bid this way or you won't even see me coming till I win in the last 4 seconds.

Sniping is usually a subscription service that allows you to enter an eBay item number and your top bid. It will fire your bid in electronically with about 4 seconds to go.

I use EZ-Sniper with excellent results. It is especially helpful when a Seller enters multiple items electronically and their end times are within seconds of each other.

The vin stampings on the frame are the first i recall being bare metal; that is, the metal is not rusted where the paint was chipped out form the stamping procedure.

The longer one looks the more interesting this bike becomes.
Check out the early exhaust finned exhaust clamps. These are the thick style that have the #'s 2 & 3 clamps ground away to clear the centre fins and the petcock has been replaced.
Can anyone tell if the mirror stems are 10mm or 11mm Mark do you have any views  :-\
