1971 Honda CB 750 K1
As history has shown, in 1969 the Honda CB750 was the one motorcycle that ended the 100 years of British motorcycle dominance throughout the world. The highly advanced Japanese design and technology of the Honda 750 totally overwhelmed every British make and model. The Brit’s were too slow and possibly too set in their ways to retool and try to compete with this invasion from the far east. This very fine example looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor, instead of being a 50 year old motorcycle! It has been reported to be a three owner bike since new, has lived its entire life in the Sacramento area and has been on static display in the last owner’s possession for a number of years. Unfortunately, there is little information about any work done to it since sold new. Without knowing the bikes full history, we cannot definitively say whether this is an unmolested original or if it has gone through a full and complete nut and bolt restoration at some point in it’s life. The odometer shows only 1,609 miles, and the motorcycle is in perfect condition. It would certainly make a fun rider or an excellent addition to any man cave or collection.
