God that bike was a blast. I had the same color, but mine was a 500. Bored .050 over, it blew away stock 750's. I had never been on anything that compared ( this was back in 1976) until I bought the 2008 Speed Triple.
I believe Fred's is in collectors condition.
And he won't let me bore it out!:p

It actually is .020 over. I freshened it up after I stopped using it as a daily driver. :)

The 750's get more credit than I think they deserve. Being a third bigger they are only marginally faster. Depending on riders a 500 will often put the whoop on a 750.
