1977 Red Honda CB750K

Question

Hey guys. 1977 CB750K Had the bike for 2 days and love it!! But it has some quirks. Like it will only run and start on full choke. Idles at 3k RPMs. Fuel also leaks out of the #1 carb if i leave the fuel petcock on. Any ideas for fixes? Not too sure how i want to customize it, but there is a lot of potential! I will buff the tank to a mirror finish to make the bike look even better! I need a new exhaust for it as well. Mid pipe back. The current muffler’s are partially clogged up and destroyed. Any reccomendations for a replacement muffler that will hook up to the existing header pipes? Any suggestions for any mods? I do not want to go full cafè racer. But id like a cafe style seat!

    Air filter cartridge is probably clogged, even when they look ok they can be stuffed with microscopic particles, my old CB650PZ wouldn’t pull at all until I put a new air filter into it, have you ever seen a 40 year old Police bike pull wheelstands? my neighbours have lol.

    Strip and clean carbs , try boiling o rings if slack , it revitalises them . Check float distances. Clean out tank and fuel tap . Replace air filter. Did this to my cb500four and since runs great just need to balance carbs.

    Worth a lot more money if you restore it to original. Unfortunately one person’s idea of ‘the perfect cafe racer’ is often an eyesore to many others.

    But i do want some agressive tires for sure. I want to keep the cargo rack. I have a windsheild for it. Buff that tank till it shines. Detail the frame and engine, etc
