Condition : Used
Location : Denver, Colorado, United States

Highly modified frame up custom 1973 Honda CB750 K3 show bike. Runs and rides perfectly.

This now custom modified 1973 Honda CB750 was purchased in nearly stock form in 2007 with only 12,680 original miles. At the time, the stock exhaust had been chopped, and longer front forks were installed. After sourcing OE length forks, the bike was ridden mildly in that form until 2012, when a complete tear down was initiated for a custom rebuild, the odometer then at 16,112. Over the next several years, the bike was a part time project, and pieced together carefully with both OE and after market parts until completion in 2016. Every nut, bolt, and pin was removed and cleaned, or replaced.

Since 2016, the bike has been ridden very minimally (less than 200 miles), while being shown in a number of cars and coffee type car and bike shows. It has been garaged exclusively throughout its ownership and I am the 3rd owner. The OE speedo was removed so total mileage is unknown at this point, but based on how infrequently the bike has been ridden, it is now believed to be around 16,300.
