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. Smiley Sure wish I could see this bike first hand and photograph every nook and cranny that is of interest to me. Smiley

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! Smiley

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.  Huh

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.

Factory paint could sometimes be thin; looks like original finishes I've seen.

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.
