$75??? That's crazy. I remember buying a whole set of finned covers back in '77 for my 750F and I think I paid $12 for all the valve covers, clutch cover and stator cover. Just nuts I say.

Yep, ;) and how much were you earning in 77 :roll:

My first "new" bike cost me $1600 in 84 and the same bike is now $2500 second hand!!

450 now that is a coincidence :) so lets see $400 on booze and women and $38 on everything else :p now that leaves $12 for some finned covers :lol: :lol:

I would work it differently:

I spent $400 on booze and women. The other $38 I just wasted. :lol:

I plan on messaging the seller and trying to work out a deal on that cover. AFTER/IF no one buys it at that price.. If anyone here has intentions on buying it then go for it I guess... That's an insane price though! :roll:

You Aussie's have your priorities wrong. I owned a '76 Honda 750F at the time. I spent most of my money fixing modifying that bike, playing pool, throwing darts and racing around the mountains of San Francisco. The rest of the time I spent at the enlisted club where the "WestPac Widows" were buying me drinks and hoping I'd....well, you get the idea. :)

What, take them for a ride and they'd be hoping you'd not brake down :lol: :lol: My 400/4 was new, sexy and very reliable, so all that was left to do was party :D :D

That cover is sounding expensive. I might just spend $75 and have two new fined covers :D :D and as for spares :twisted: I have enough.

Not really expensive. Just curious man.. Trades are fun.

Are you gonna jump on that cover for the listed price??? :shock: If no one here does, I already sent the seller a message about us making a deal if it doesn't sell..
