No phone # in ad, emailed the guy, we'll see if he replies. It's about 50 miles away, nice little road trip.

Usually too cheap to be true is just that, my CB550-4 experience in Florida reinforces that belief.

But what if?

These dreary drizzly boring February days are dangerous to my pocketbook!

+1 Hmmmm... Price is right! Background: Last year of the SOHC CB750. It has all the factory tweaks and revisions.

Other than the funky looking exhaust the bike looks stock. I would be checking this one out.

I had a 1978 SOHC CB750 F2 (Hondaline wheels, black motor, triple disc brakes) that I bought for $1000 in 2002. So 1977 wasn't the last year for the SOHC 750, and the price isn't that ridiculous. They are cool bikes but there are still a lot of them out there. When I went from a Shadow 500 (my first bike) to a 25 year-old CB750, I thought it was the coolest, torquiest thing on earth. I have since learned that many other bikes make way more horsepower with way less weight, but I do love those things. They will stand up to a lot of abuse and look cool doing it.

1969 CB750 K1 -> approx. 60 hp, 500 lbs
2009 Sportster -> approx. 60 hp, 550 lbs

So Harley is only about 40 years behind Honda - they are actually catching up, because that CB750 was about 50 years ahead of HD when it came out.

I thought only the F model was manufactured in 1978. The K model was also available. Thanks for the clarification.

Let me know if you run up on any "decent" 550s in your journeys. I have a long history with one of those bikes that I never should have sold.

The 750 in the pic looks good, but pics are deceiving. Wonder what the extra motor was for?

Well after three unreturned emails I have to assume that either the guy sold the bike already or only has computer access once a month when he walks to the library.
