I am really itching to get a new bike. I am riding an old 84 Shadow right now and I also have this hillbilly project I made in my spare time from a 79 CB750. I want to get rid of both and get something decent but I have no idea what I would even ask for the billy bike. I know it isn't worth near what I have sunk into it. Anyone have any ideas? -Nuke [img]http://media7.motorcities.com/01C8F381051663A.jpeg[/img]

I'll give you $100 if you deliver it here to CT.

I don't have any real idea what that might be worth, but I'd be interested to hear your price when you're going to sell it. I might be in the market for something cool like that.

I'll give you $100, four alum five spoke Jeep rims, and a broken deer feeder (needs a new motor), for the Hillbilly Cafe Racer. And I will come and get the bike.

I like the Bike. CB750,Not as many valves,Like today's powerplants...Still a strong engine. Where's the battery cover? Yeah,I'm a hillbilly

Battery covers are gone, as are the seat mounting tabs. didnt' quite go w/ the other fiberglass. This one actually has the first year 16 valve engine. faster than the SOHC but nothing like today's. -Nuke

Go over to [url]www.sohc4.net[/url] and poke around. Those bikes have a large and loyal following, because they are great bikes. "I have had once since 1977, myself. There is a mailing list there that you can join and ask about value, as well as perhaps find a buyer who would give it a good home.

Hey, it has rearsets. And i'll have you know, they are damn uncomfortable too! If it hurts to ride, you know its good. -Nuke

[b]If it hurts to ride, you know its good.[/b] tell me about it! my last glasser was a '92 gsxr-1100...talk about a radical seating position. but, that thing sure could talk to me! sorry, i can't see the rear mounted brake/peg in the pic. i'm guessing you moved the factory brake lever/peg?

yeah, i guess thats an older pic. The fairing blocked the brake so i had to do rearsets, otherwise i would have left it standard. I'm still torn between cruiser/sportbike right now. I would like to have something i can take long trips on and that rules out a true sporter, but i like the looks a lot better. Maybe i'll end up w/ some kind of sport tourer or something even worse like a pacific coast. -Nuke

I'd say that Campy is close. You might get double that also. Probably realisticly, $1000 - $1500. It is a nice looking bike for sure.
