Nope...You're discribing the Mach IV .This bike was to replace it. I'll go ahead and tell. The next performance bike to be released in 1977 was a liquid cooled square four 750. It was styled exactly like the Mach IV except it had no fins , a radiator ,and four pipes instead of three:eek: I saw pics of it and almost cried. That was gonna be SWEET.:mecry: The paint was the same as the 77 KH400. Thank you EPA:slap:

I save old magazines too, drives my wife crazy, she always wants to throw them out. Asked, "what are you saving these for," I never have a response. I had boxes of bike mags from the 80's. I think she trashed them finally.:(
I still have my old comic books stashed up in the attic though.;)
