Here's my three ( well sort of).

The 71 I got about three years ago. The two 77's I just got in May of 08.
'71 K1

'77 K7

'77 K7


Plan on rebuilding the K7. The K1 runs great and use it whenever the weather here in North Dakota cooperates, which just lately hasn't been very much.

CB750K5

Replaced seat, indicators, some hardware.

Polished lower engine parts and front forks.

Rebuilt front end and re-painted many parts

Still need to re-lace wheels (stainless I hope).  More polishing.  Fix fin on top of cylinder head.  Replace exhaust with factory exhaust when I can find an affordable set.

Guys..

Was just wondering..in scrolling on this "registry"..I don't see an actual registry (User Names, number of bikes,etc.)..as with other (500/500, 400, 350) registries.

Any comments, details?

Hello, new to the forum but not sohc 4s. I had to get my butt here after my most recent find... My 3 rd and most unusual 750.
Vin# CB750-1018752 Eng# CB750E-1018962. Really interesting pile of K0 stuff. Early black kill switch. Wrinkle tank with cast gas cap. Early 1 into 4 throttle cable carbs. Dimple master cyl. and an un marked set of early exhaust. Frame and clear title... I won't say the price because the collective groan would be deafening.
So should I sell it all or make a chopper out of it?

= )
I will post some pictures of my other toys shortly.

Heres one of my cb750's its a bit of a mongrel made up of different year bikes , it has a early frame,  numbers are 103***4 registered here in the uk as a 1970 = free road tax , forks, wheels, body work and the rest are K1 & K2, and the engine is out of a 78' F1,
i have owned this bike for about 4 years now and it is going through what i would call a rolling restoration, this year i have replaced the rear tyre with Dunlop TT100, i have also replaced the chainguard with one from the US, i have replaced the top brake hose for a braided hose, i have fitted new chrome and black tank trim & also my biggest purchase to date a brand new in the box genuine seat from David Silvers @ a cost of £170.38  :o, still plenty to do, paint and some rechroming  hope you like it  ;), cheers Mick.

I love that all these 750s are still out there! That some are stock some are commuters and others choppers and cafe racers! God love Mr. Honda.

Can't wait to get started on the next two projects.

You guys all have great visions and nice looking bikes.

Everyone says I'm an idiot for modifying this 30 year old classic but that's what I bought it for , I want to re-live my youth in this bike that I found Feb 08. in box stock shape. Bought one just like it 30 years ago, kids came it went. I am keeping all the stock parts for if ever.
Mods so far :
New Dunlops with 140 rear
320 mm Redwings
Mac 4-1 which is as good as my old Kerker and better than the Winning Performance pipe of old
Emgo (uh-oh) pods cant find (afford) K&N
120 mains with minor carb cleanup, a little bubbly off idle but I think that's pretty norm if I remember right.
Emgo (again) Viper (how does this fit?) Sucks after having a Dunstall
Drag bars in black
Dyna ignition and 3 ohm green coils with Accel wires
Radakks oil filter adapter ,nice , seems to work well, quality
Old Corbin Gentry seat from the 70's which will be changed to something else later
Still ahead  Paint , plating or polishing , engine detailing , for now just riding it and testing parts.

Looking for a Suzuki Marauder rear fender and taillight, front cafe fender, mini blinkers etc as time goes on

Great site here ,refreshes my memory !!
Thanks,
George
Found this bike in completely stock condition in Feb. 08. Paid over twice what my new one cost 30 years ago. Am trying to re-create the look of the late 70's Drag Bike styling.More later. 4-2-10 It ain't stock any more and I have no idea what I am trying to create !

I bought this 73 about a week ago. Don't know much about it, just what work it needs which seems like a lot.  Currently resides in the driveway next to my 81 cb650

No matter how fast or how far I rode, I couldn't leave her memory behind.

...'74 750K Cafe Racer...
Cafe Racing is mainly a matter of taste. It is an atavistic mentality, a peculiar mix of low style, high speed, pure dumbness, and overweening commitment to the Cafe Life and all its dangerous pleasures. I am a Cafe Racer myself, on some days - and it is one of my finest addictions. ~H. S. Thompson~

A 1976 F model.  5000 miles... on an engine that isn't running.  Soon, though.  Soon.

Located in Chicago for now... will be in New Mexico by August.

One day, I will put up a signature.

Have several CB750's
Daily rider is a 78F

Current project is a 75K, with a 78K in the wings,
have a couple for sale,( no room in the garage anymore), 77K with a newly painted burgundy Metal flake tank and sidecovers, and a 76A we are still tinkering with, but almost ready to leave home.
Terrific site, love to see how many of these there are around.
the pics are looking big, is there a way to resize here or do I do it in an editing program first?
Thanks for the welcome, been lurking here a while, and learning things....

Did I mention not one of them is totally stock?


I'm in Fenton, MI
