May bid on this ?? Thoughts ?

Looks rebuilt and not ridden
Beware of the glass fiber tank
And the anti wet sump valve
Hopefully LAB will take a look and point out what's not original
the tail light is from an 850 and the wrong colour
You'd need to find out if it's actually been ridden, that's the main thing for me
All that glitters isn't always gold
Buyer beware
 
Is 5k high or a good price where you are, it might be worth it, baz has some good observations though. Cj
 
Price ? don't really know to be honest there seem to be plenty of dealers and chancers around but the real prices ?? anyones guess.

Baz has some good points, once you have some aspects to think about you end up sweating on others.
 
Ride or show? If ride, doesn't matter, if show: paint wrong (gold on red), wrong instrument holders, glass tank, chainguard wrong, taillight wrong, taillight fairing wrong and painted so maybe cracked and repaired, seat wrong ("Norton" should be silver), drive-side footpeg installed wrong, etc.; plus, what baz said. In other words, maybe rebuilt but definitely not restored.

I don't see anything stated about the gearbox, whether the engine is Commando or not, or the rebuild of anything - just saying "restored" when it clearly is not restored tells you very little.

If in the US and titled, it's a reasonable to low price at the current price. IMHO, 6500 GBP would be the absolute top, again if in the US and titled.
 
#220101 Makes it a very early MK V 750. Model Year 1973.
Most everything points correctly to a Mk V, Large Tailight, Large Cup Holders, gap on cylinder head indicates Non Combat.
I believe, even the Gold over Red with no pin striping is correct for the MkV.
The biggest things that jump out are the Tank and the Seat.
Original seat would have been perforated with the small holes and the Tank would have been metal.
Tank is not stock as the correct metal tank would have had the pressed seams around the edges.
Could still be metal as the Mk 3 had the gas welded seams, rounded edges.
It's a BIG knock if the tank is Fiberglass.
Otherwise, nice looking ride.


Also has some sort of coil housing?
And looks like the early flat plate type head steady,the pre box section one that cracks ?
Yup, not sure what's going on there.
 
A friend of mine has this one for sale. He’s done lots of work on it, and I recently saw it at the Welford meet. The only thing I could see wrong with it is that I suspect it has an Indian tank which needs repainting, but I know the price is negotiable.

 
Cliffa that does look like a tidy bike, must confess I was trying to find something for less money .. maynot be easy of course !

Bike looks good but the price he is asking is way too high IMO
You may get that much for an 850 if you were very lucky
But not a 750
I'd guess more like £6000

Yes, it's fibreglass not metal Mk3.
