I found a 1976 Honda 750 they want about $600, bike looks

Customer Question

I found a 1976 Honda 750 for sale they want about $600, bike looks good but hasn't been run in 10+ years just sitting in the garage. My thought is all seals probably need to be done and carbs checked tires are bad also. I thought maybe $200 would be fair considering what repairs are possibly needed. What for sure should I expect and costs?

are you doing the repairs your self or will you be paying to have it done

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I would do what I can myself unless I would have to take it in. So im trying to determine possible repairs necessary, and difficulty if I can handle it without taking it in.
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 4 months ago.

a rebuild kit is about 150 dollars you would need to change all gaskets and seals flush out the engine

Ok how bout carb work I was told by someone else working on the carburetor I would also need to have the timing redone.
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 4 months ago.

in deed you would have to reset timing as well as sync the carburetor

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Ok and im guessing for that I would have to take it in to be done.
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 4 months ago.
