This is a good project bike for someone that is mechanically inclined and is looking for a good core bike to fix up. Its up to the new owner on how far they want to take it.If you are a vintage Honda XR75 fan you know this is the first model year and very difficult to find in decent condition. I will go into detail below but if you have additional questions do not hesitate to contact me.I would be happy to answerany questionsfor you.This model fully restored will typically sell for4500 +so it is worth putting the effort into.I am ok with a two part payment as long as it does not go over a month and we discuss the terms prior to purchase. Thanks for looking!

*** Thereis no title for this bike but thenew owner will get a Bill of Sale.

Bike details:

  • Frame - frame is straight with no crushed tubes. Thepainta redone by the previous owner and looks very nice.
  • Bodywork - front / back fenders have been repainted and it was not a good job. Side panelsarein niceshapewith no dents or creases but there is a scrape on the ride side panel decal. Tankpaint I am 95% sure is original. As I was preparing this bike for sale I cleaned the gas tank out and replaced the petcock with a brand new one (not shown in the pictures). Front number plate isin great shape.
  • Suspension - forks are in nice shape with no leaks but there are a few pits here and there. Fork bottom need to be polished. Shocks work fine and should clean up to look good.
  • Motor -This bike starts runs shifts and idles a itshould but gascomes out of the carb over flowhose while the petcock I turned onwhich tells me the float set is sticking and the carb will need a rebuild(I ordered a Brand new aftermarket carb for the bike along with a manifold gasket and theywill both be included with the bike).Kick starter is original and works.The center case gasket leaks. However if you want to replace it these are very simple motors to work on if you are mechanically inclined.
  • Exhaust - Pipe seems to be original and is in very nice condition.The pipes are the hardest part to find for these old XR's.
  • Wheels - rims have rust/pitting all over (see picture). You have several options - you can buy newrims/ spoke kitson Ebay or the other option is just purchase a nice usedwheel on ebay and swap the new tires over. The tires on the bike are new.
  • Seat - seatcover foam and base are in ecellentshape..
  • Controls -throttle lever's perch covers bars kill switch and Grip's all work.
