I saw what looked to be a decommisioned police sohc 750 yesterday.. It was in front of some Harley biker dudes house- I might try to go back through and take pictures.. But it was certainly a sohc750, and it was a full-dresser, painted white... Looked just like the Harley police bikes, but with the sohc4 motor.Was this a conversion do ya think? Or were there many of these bikes that saw police duty? If these bikes did see police duty, I wonder what years they were used (and maybe some police department somewhere has a cache of parts! The bikes look completely differeny with all the touring setup on them!
Did it look like this?http://cgi.ebay.com/Honda-CB750-Police-bike_W0QQitemZ180027607229QQihZ008QQcategoryZ102690QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
Our local police force tried Hondas and Kawasakis in the early to mid seventies, but after a year or so went back to Harleys. The police couldn't break the habit of getting into top gear as soon as possible and lugging the engines. 15mph in 5th in the city isn't the real hot ticket.
I bought it from the mechanic that worked on them at LAPD , in 72 he brought it home with everything police on it, siren, lights , solo seat, only thing they would not let him have was the radio. He hated the white fenders and replaced them with chrome ones , brought the bike back to "stock" the way I have it. BTW he does not have the police dress, threw it away.
