I have owned this motorcycle since new in 1971. I originally built it into a cafe racer back in the early 70’s and then remodified again into a milder version cafe racer. It took me over 40 years to finish while I had other bikes and hot rods. I have just finished it and it runs great. It started up on the first try. It has a new battery and brand new Avon Roadrider tires, 19″ front wheel and 18″ rear. New Mac exhaust. New sport mirrors. Lots of new individual parts and gaskets. Carbs have been completely rebuilt to new. Tomaselli clip-ons with Magura levers. Dual front brakes using original factory Honda racing brackets to mount second brake calipers. Custom triple rotors. Brembo rear caliper with Ferodo brake pads. Rear linkage I designed and built myself using a Hurst/Airheart master cylinder. No center stand mounted but I have the original included. It has an original Dresda swing arm. There are also tapered bearings in the steering neck, not ball bearings like the original. There is a Marchal Amplilux headlight which has a 1 1/2 mile reflective range on high beam. Lucas style taillight for a traditional look. Ceriani front fender, fiberglass. Lockhart oil cooler. Hella dual horns, real LOUD! I might have left something out there is so much I have done. Runs Great! 12,000 original miles. I am the only one to have ridden it since 1971. One last major feature which almost no one has ever heard of. The wheels are Carroll Shelby (the same Cobra person) aluminum wheels for Honda bikes. Very rare and they are also tubeless. I only know of one other bike in England that has them on, and Steve Carpenter, cafe builder out of California has had them. The blue color is a 1970 Ford Maverick dark blue, I painted myself. I did the entire rebuild myself and it came out great. It is one of the first three years of CB750 production. A lot of the parts are original and it has never been down. Rear fender is fiberglass I made myself. Adjustable steering damper. Progressive springs in the front fork. Boge shocks out back. Self-lubricating drive chain with accompanying rear sprocket and matching front sprocket. I don’t think I left anything out. I am very proud of this restoration and I really don’t want to sell it, but I am moving and need to find it a new home. It has a clear title and is currently registered and insured.
