What engines swap easily into a 79 CB750? The exisiting runs, but I guess the cam chain has worn through the case (so I was told)... leaks like a sive where the jugs meet the crank case.

Cousin just dropped it off in my garage saying he doesn't want it.

Ps...anyone want a 200cc Honda quad project?

CBR600 engine? Old GSXR 600 or 750 oil-cooler? Huge two-stroke thumper from a dirt bike? The possibilities are endless.

Another CB750 shouldn't be extremely hard to find. I sold one for $50 last year.

I don't think this bike needs that much hp....I could be wrong though. 34 year old brake technology and 150hp? sure...

It's a shame they went out of fashion, they were a great fairing.

Here is the damage I need to replace. Looks like a previous owner tried to patch it, but it still leaks oil.

Not sure if this is JBWeld-able or if I just replace it.
