Re: Dallas - Vintage Bike Stolen!

Is that a 750/4? What year?

I LOVE that bike. In fact, I have a cycletrader saved search looking for one.

I'll keep an eye out.

Re: Dallas - Vintage Bike Stolen!

That sucks.

I'd create a search tempest search (searches multiple craigslist sites) for about a 300 mile radius and run it daily for a month or so.

My bet is that is shows up in another city for sale.

I've seen that a lot on high end bicycles and sometimes motorcycles. Stolen in Houston, pop up for sale in Dallas type of thing...

I'd break down if my CB750 were stolen.

Re: Dallas - Vintage Bike Stolen!

I believe that is a CB550. Cylinders are more straight up. Hard to read the sidecover though. The muffler shape says 550.

GOOD NEWS!

It was found dumped in an alley behind a neighbor's house. No apparent damage.

Re: Dallas - Vintage Bike Stolen!

Go buy a lottery ticket, you luck is hot right now!

Bad luck having it stolen in the first place, but somehow luck turned you way again!

Re: Dallas - Vintage Bike Stolen!

That 550K looks like a 76-77 I think..
Previous were 500s from 71-73
My first bike ..bought new from Steakleys was a 78 K model in almost the same color.... Mufflers had a different shape

Glad it was found unharmed
