Hi everyone. I've been lurking for a while on the forum getting some great advice on these DOHC bikes and I thought it was time to hello.

I'm based in N. Ireland and I have a bit of a project on my hands with a 1981 CB750KZ (like the 79 Boat tail with comstar wheels)

It has seen better days and it doesn't run any more due to tight valve clearances and leaking valves - at least.

I won't do a full rundown here but I'll maybe start a build thread in the appropriate area of the forum.

Here are some "before" shots of what I'm working with.
