Hi!
I'm going to paint the coloured parts for my #24/43. The 19 litre fueltank seem to have been red from beginning. On the outside of Motorcycle World of March 1970 where they tested the same bike it looks as it was bluegreen. Is there anyone who have read the article and can tell me it's original colour?
I'm looking forward to your answers, Bo from Sweden.

Re:  "MOTORCYCLE WORLD" March 1970 Road Test

Bo, i am looking at that article right now, page 59, upper RH corner, the tester has documented the engine number as "CB750E 1000024."

the tester unfortunately does not document the frame number.

is your engine number 24 or 43 ?

Hi Steve!
Thank you for your interest. I thought they ment frame #24 and not E24. My bike is frame 24 and engine 43. What a pity it wasn't that bike. Since the fueltank looks to been red from beginning I'm gonna paint it red again. May I ask you to send me a couple of close pictures of your straight brass venturipipes? You can send them to my email bojje@snapphanetruck.se
Thank you in advance, Bo
Would be nice to meet each other soon again!

Hi Bo !  yes, it wold be great to meet again.  glad to hear you got that Hollis bike !  i don't have any close up pics of the brass tubes, the carbs are on my 232 bike and there's no way i can get close enough to them to get a picture.  this link show the carbs after i rebuilt them around 10 years ago - http://cb750sandcastonly.com/support12.htm

maybe KP can help.....??

or perhaps Chris has a picture of the brass tubes.... ?

Mark B posted some photos of the early carbs. Unfortunately you can't make an early carb rack from a later set. Whilst you could technically change the 90 degree cast air vent with a custom made brass pipe, the carbs are a physically different casting.
I'll see if I can find the photos posted by Mark B

I did post a set of photos many years ago which were on the old website stored on Coppermine Something happened and all my photos stored there disappeared so unless I find time to redo these elevation type photos the ones Mark has posted will show enough

If it will help, I will dig out my spare set of straight vent carbs and photograph. I suspect though that the link KP has provided gives as much detail as I would achieve. Let me know....

Hi Wayne
They are some pictures of saved items There is a suite of Mark B mirror images showing differences between 10mm and 11mm mirror stems. Very interesting stuff
The link below refers to a post I did in 2011 following a request from Ricardo The photos for some reason are no longer linked. If you can find them you win the gold, silver and bronze medal  Grin

Yippie Wayne  Cheesy
Yes that's them. Are there others in the file as there are other Coppermine links throughout the Board that have stopped displaying.
 I should do a better photo set to identify all the differences as there are others. Chris, are you still doing a photo shoot as my carbs are in my storage shed an I'll not be getting to it for a fair while. KP

The only way to tell if there are other missing images would be to check every post on the board KP. A daunting task. If anyone sees a post with missing images, report it to me and I'll investigate. The only ones I can't fix are links from non SOOC sources. ie: photobucket etc.
