If you are doing a serious restoration, there is no question you need to paint it. Not many people do serious restorations these days though... If you are doing a rebuild you can go either way. I powder coated my 750 GT but have been painting my latest projects. Painting is something I can do myself...

Pull the head and the tube might come out with it. It's only held in place by o-rings. You can probably buy new ones for less than rechroming the old ones though... FWIW somebody already pulled that one apart at some point - the upper mount is on backwards. Read up on the timing marks for your engin...

I'm no expert on chroming, but from what I know the chroming process won't coat the inside of a tube. Many (most? all?) places will refuse to rechrome a muffler, especially if it has fiberglass inside of it. The fiberglass strands can contaminate the baths they use. In fact I've heard a lot of place...

The 160 has a narrower front mount. Other than that as far as I know they're the same.

The tray should work great.

I'm pretty sure I changed the rear wheel bearings since I changed 95% of the bearings in the bike, but I can't remember how I removed the old ones... It's been five or six years since I did it...

don;t touch the paint. get her running and enjoy her. The bike is a treasure........ whatever you do do NOT part it out. I'd agree with that. That thing's no where near the "part it out" category.

Most collectable by far is a 1974 750SS. I think nice ones have hit six figures recently??? GTs are probably the least collectable, and the most common (funny how that works). Nice ones are going for... I dunno... $8k and up these days? Sports are in between, nice ones going for high teens, low 20's...

Jonduc, If the crank was set up correctly,30k should be no problem. I'd agree with that, I've had similar experience. When I rebuilt my 750 GT it showed 62,000 miles and the speedo was broken. I sent the crank to Syd's where they pulled it apart, examined everything, and put it back together with t...
