A bit of history and some stories about vintage bikes for sale

’76 Honda CB750

I don’t believe you could find a sweeter unrestored CB750 anywhere. The first generation SOHC 750’s were a true marvel of the time. Smooth, fast, good brakes and reliability. Honda had truly become the bench mark for motorcycle reliability. My traveling partner at the time Bud, had a ’72 CB750 that rode everyday to work and took at three long trips per year. Long trips to him were nine to ten days and 500-600 miles per day minimum. Bud liked to sightsee at around 75MPH. His Honda never broke down, well, unless a flat tire and a dead battery count as breakdowns.

This one on ebay today is absolutely beautiful. Unrestored but looks almost like it just came off the showroom floor. And it gone too far from that showroom floor, the motorcycle only has 7,000 miles on the clock. I have seen SOHC 750’s in good shape go for some pretty big money and so far this one is looking quite reasonable. Buy it, fly to where it is and ride it home. click on the pics for more pics and details.
