My personal belief is that the dots were place on the bike as an indicator of a problem that was found during testing that needed additional corrections during quality checks before leaving the factory. I don't have any specific information to back up my theory, but I do own two Sandcasts with blue dots close to the top casting date.

in an earlier post, someone suggested the dot might indicate which factory the bike originated from.  this could be a plausible theory.

who knows how many factories produced the CB750 in 1969 ?

so far, we have identified 2 colors for these dots ?

and, we have identified motorcycles that have no sign of ever having a dot ?

i would suggest the color of the dot might be immaterial.  i would suggest the dot meant the motorcycle passed a final inspection, after the bike came off the assembly line.  i would suggest the dot indicated the motorcycle could be put in a crate, ready to be shipped from the factory.

Why not have indicated the colors by a red dot, a blue dot, and a yellow dot?? We have never seen these points of color on the French bikes...  Very dubious on this theory...

green dot on gold bike kind of shoots the theory of colored dots used to designate body color......

Hello everyone,  Here is a K0 with a frame number 1020280, dated January 1970 imported from the USA and it has a green pellet glued on carburetors...I thought it might be interesting

Would love to buy it but my old garage is quite filled so I need to jump over stuff all the time. At yearchange my new garage will be finished and hopefully at least another two of my projects. My visit in USA gotanother 4 bikes and above that 3 from UK. I need more time until there is space for more bikes. What I mean, I'm not gonna bid on this one.
I wish the bike a suitable new home, Bo from Sweden.

Very interesting bike. Has all the stuff a restorer use to get a brainstorm of before they are found. Really hope the future owner keeps it as it is.
Looking forward to what happends at end of auction.

Hey Bo, Given you're an avid collector maybe you should be the next owner  Shocked

what is remarkable about this vin, from what i've looked at, appears to have all the later small parts on it, not earlier type parts as one could expect to see on -500 vins. 

i will always feel frame 1865 with the "steering damper" gusseting was quite the outlier.

yes, certainly has all the appearances of a very lovely original machine.
