This Honda CB750 1973 was used for Drag Racing in the late 1970s. I have known the owner builder/racer for this bike and he used to race in Central and North Texas back in the day, The bike sat for a couple of years untouched and I decided with the help of John the first owner to restore the bike following the spect, the reason why it was essential to use his knowledge. The journey of rebuilding the CB970 was very interesting and inspiring, now after 10 years in the process with family and work the project sat behind. Maybe I can get back to it in a couple of years or let someone get the inspiring burst. Everything in the engine got rebuilt from scratch the bike started kick or starter, with the option of using a shave magneto for less weight. The motor needs to be break-in, I have started 3 timesThis is mainly for drag races I personally think having the bike street legal might not be a good idea. I don’t have the title but it is all legal.

Here are a few things that I have done:

  • Frame un-cut, just powder coated with extended swing harm
  • All Fabrication is done by a professional welder
  • Valves work, new rings, new Barrett clutch, one sleeve got replaced, new crank bearing
  • All rubber and bearings replaced
  • 19-inch Original wheel, new nipple, and spoke from Buchanan
  • Carrillo Rods
  • MTC pistons
  • 2 sets of carburetors, individual and links Mikuni 33ml and original Keihin
  • Super Hawk front and rear wheel and fork set up + extra fork
  • Gel seat fabrication
  • Magura Throttle
  • 2 into the exhaust, British style
  • Strut hardtail set up
  • The extra engine bore unknown with a lot of extra parts and some are NEW from Honda 1970, This motorcycle is not original, and it wasn’t the idea to bring it back to the original Honda dealer state.

I have included some original photos from when I purchased the motorcycle and I have a lot of photos and datasheet information the first owner is still alive if you need additional information.
I must have spent 8k + on parts I am not counting labor. The intention for selling or trading this motorcycle is that I am looking for someone that is an enthusiast and understand the purpose of the 970, maybe a vintage drag racer. I am not expecting to get the money and time spent on the motorcycle.
