Seen an excellent '71 Roadster for sale with only 25000 miles. Owner advises that the top end was rebuilt and the bottom end was sound. Are these early 750's reliable without having the main bearings and layshaft bearings done or is that something I should factor in? Reading all the articles makes for scary reading that the gearbox could lock up unannounced... Also I am not sure if it is a combat engine but are they a no-go? Finally is the drum brake any good?
