Hi lash! Good to have you on the forum. Looks as if you like the CB750s no matter what color they are. :D
I bought a 76 CB750 new. I had it about 4 years or so. It was a good running bike. Then I got into Goldwings.

Ya, I guess so ! I get them as barn bikes and do restores. Problem is after I get them finished and ride them a couple of times I cant seem to part with them..

Uff... been changing bikes almost as often as I have changed girlfriends in some years :lol:

First bike I got in 2009 I had was a 1974 Yamaha RD350-A (351) - then while having that one sitting around I decided to go for a 1993 Yamaha XV250 Virago (3LS) to ride on until I got my license (and after this too).
I then swapped an Aprilia RS50 for a 1977 (reg. date) Yamaha RD350-B (351) - A is the first model with drum brakes from the R5 and B is the second with disc brakes; this one was bored to 380cc and had some other tune-up works done - this one was crazy, and I actually never drove it, but I still have it.
In 2010 I then bought a 1990 MZ ETZ 125 Deluxe - the last German produced MZ before the 250cc models moved to Turkey to be made. This was mainly used as a winter bike for one winter season before being swapped in 2011 for a 1973 Honda CB350 K4 which I spent the summer working on. A few months after I traded my Virago for my third RD - a 1992 Yamaha RD350 R (2UA) which I have enjoyed many many many kilometres on.

In 2011 or 2012 I also got myself a Yamaha RS125 MK2 frame - with matching engine number and I had a few good parts laying around but not enough for a complete rebuild; so in autumn 2012 I bought a 1976 Yamaha RS125 (480) MK1 in boxes which could have been used for donor parts as this one had no documents - however it turned out to be complete - and with matching numbers so I decided to build it up and later I would apply for new documents.
The MK2 was at some point given away to a friend who wanted a small bike for café racer project so she got the frame, engine, an YB100 fork and wheel and got to pick parts from my workshop that I didn't already reserve for other projects.
The MK1 was swapped for a German registered 1981 Yamaha XS 400 (2A2) in april 2013, which a half year later was swapped for two MZ bikes: a 1966 MZ ES 150 and a 1977 MZ TZ 150 both which got sold to make room.
The CB350 K4 was earlier that year swapped for a 1994 Jawa 350 640 Blue Style - this have unfortunately been stolen from me and never returned (the RD350-B was standing next to it untouched).

At somepoint I have also picked up two 2005 Lifan LT150-T5 scooters - one with documents and one which were factory new with plastic foil on many parts... those were both sold to a guy who had a few of these and could really use the undocumented for parts.

In the more curious department, I once got a 1940 Ardie VF125 frame - for the price of postage - which I have been working on getting parts for, which have included a fuel tank, an engine (unfortunately the civilian model; S125 Junior) and some other useful parts; the rear frame was first not given to me, but then later I came to get it, which needs to be repaired since the guy have chopped it for another bike... But this is a fun little long time project that I look forward to.
Having a Facist military bike is one thing but to equal it out, I then decide also to have a Communist military bike: a 1965 KMZ K750-M build in Kiev in Soviet-Ukraine; this was in fair mechanical condition, but in terrible cosmetic condition as the previous owner decided for a rat look. The fuel tank, handlebar, exhausts and other parts he had left to surface rust have been sanded and painted and this will soon be a decent bike again!

So what do I have in the garage now (April 5th 2021):
1940 Ardie VF125
1965 KMZ K750-M
1977 Yamaha RD350-B
1984 Honda GL1200A Aspencade
1992 Yamaha RD350-R
+ the stolen 1994 Jawa

From the previous post.

My unimpressive list:
New 1965 Honda Benley touring-stolen
New 1973 Kawasaki Z903- scary fast and loose-also stolen, but had ins. this time.
Used 1975 Z903 W/flat rear tire, scared prev owner so bad had to sell, $1600 less than 2500 miles. Sold in '78due to back inj.

Now lusting after '95 or later GL1500

Still lusting for a Goldwing, but now the DCT has caught my eye.

This is my current ride, thanks to my daughter giving up riding.
