Shoot, the negative cable broke on my 74' CB750 this week. Was able to tap the connector and start up the bike, turn off the headlight, and drive it home. Sometimes older can be better!
Indeed. Its not looking good on my bike. Seems the engine ECU may have shit the bed.

Wanna guess at how long it takes to get obscure Italian bike parts from Italy in the middle of pandemic that's shut down all of Italy? LOL. I'll be lucky to have the thing up and running by winter!

As long as it takes to get any parts from Italy that involve any mode of transportation!

The slide pins were in great shape. No rust and coated in anti-seize. So I suspect it's just 30 years of poor maintenance, humid Japanese environment, and the caliper piston just locked up in the bore. That's my guess anyway.
