^ Other way around from what I have seen. 750a rarer than hens teeth. They are a very unique ride, you want to change the oil a LOT as it powers the drive as well as lubes the engine. CM 400a is prob the best in-town motorcycle ever, bigger than the rebel, super comfy seat, doubles are no problem. Kind of light and buzzy for the highway though as only 2 gears, we used to call it go (1st) and go some more, (2nd) there is a neutral, but you don't have to put it in neutral when you come to a stop, leave it in first, or second, it really does not seem to matter, except that in second it accelerates slower, but will not stall the bike. The way it was intended is 1st up to about 40, then ease off gas and shift into second to wot, about 85 on the 400, that was as fast as I pushed mine as it sounded like it would explode. There is a lever where the clutch should be, DON"T pull it, it is a parking brake and will lock up the rear wheel!!! Another quirk I was not ready for, low speed on wet pavement since there is no clutch it can pull the bike out from under you unless you get it to neutral quick, kind of like a passport, slam shift, but I think you have to put a passport in neutral at a stop? Very strange riding experience, but I would own another in a heartbeat!
