I have owned it for over 6+ years now. It was imported during 1990s. Changed two hands before coming to my place.

Im so glad to see this bike. it left mangalore sometime in 09 and ive been trying to trace it ever since. The only info I was given is that it went to mysore. So im guessing the person you bought it from picked it up.

Im just glad x9113 survives and is so well maintained!
It was a bag of jugaad back then!

Yes sir, this is the bike. Thanks for the photograph. I had lost the photo long back. As you can compare the old and new bike, the restoration has been from bare shell chassis all the way to gas tank and dash.

Saw this bike if I am not wrong at Johny's Garage in Bandra and was drooling, very desirable and collectable to say the least. Have always had it on my wish list, hope I can find one in decent shape.
I have a VF750F which will be dropped off at Johny's for a complete restoration after he completes the Douglas T35 engine restoration.
A very decent person indeed Johny.

Yes sir, you are right. The bike was totally done by Mr Johnny. It was with him for over 1 year. The best part is, I have not seen him or visited his garage till now. I sent motorcycle in bits and parts by bus from Mysore. He used to collect the same from Navi Mumbai and started building the bike.He sent the fully finished bike by train from Dadar to Mysore along with his Staff!.
Gentleman indeed!.

Got this from a good friend. This CB750 is also in Mumbai and has gone thru a complete restoration. I know it was up for sale, but not sure if its been sold or not.

@Haroon, please accept my sincere thanks for your words of encouragement.
I use my bike daily to go to my office which is 3 kms from my house. My biking is only limited to this drive. I have health issues which prevent me from going on long drives.

Haroon , is it possible to find out from your friend about this bike , if it is still for sale and if so ,how much is he expecting to sell it for.
I am not in Mumbai right now, I am a presently sailing and will be back in Mumbai only by end of November . I would really like to see it then, it looks to be well cared for.
