Interesting article...

Here is my dad's 1976 750 FOUR. He bought it with 1000 miles on it in the late 70's and sold it with 4000 miles on it last summer. :(



Those are very fun bikes to cruise around with. A lot faster than you'd expect from an older bike, too.

Why did he sell it? If it was in pristine condition like your photo it is a classic. Not too many CB750's around these days that clean and all original.

Now you have hit on a bike I can really relate to but then again I can also relate to Iron Butterfly. :rockon:

Lets not forget it was Dick Mann that won the 1970 Daytona riding a CB750.

I had a 1971 CB750 K1 that did not stay stock for very long. Most of original K0 problems had been addressed by 1971.
When my 812cc motor out performed the chassis it found a home in a Rickman frame. Great memories!!!

He just never rode it I guess. It has always been on the rubber side. Never even a tip over. All original, I think even the tires(scary) were original. That bike rocked the racing world back in the day.

My dad used to give me rides around my home town on it when I was in the single digits. I remember holding onto his belt when he'd hit the gas..... good memories.

That picture above was taken last summer soon before he sold it. I believe he bought it for $750? Sold it for $3500

I had a killer CB750F SuperSport in 1986. Replaced the round headlight with a rectangular one and small rifle fairing painted to match.

Even though I sold it for more than I paid for it I've always regretted it just a tad.
