Classified Moto Honda CB750
This is a “one of one” professional level 4 build from 2014. Like so many great hot rodders, it’s time for this one to pass onto another home. Too many great bikes out there to own just one. I actually can’t believe I’m listing this; it’s a 10/10 and I can’t get enough of riding it but times change.
I reached out to John Ryland after seeing Bob Ranew’s XV920 that John built for him. Unlike anything I ever saw. At the same time, I also saw Katee Sackoff’s “KT 650” online and knew Classified Moto was the shop to go to.
It debuted at the-1-moto show in Portland hosted by Thor’s See See Motor Coffee Co. It was one of 2 bikes that John brought to the show. The other was Katee’s second bike the “KT 675”. Excellent show; this was the “Snowpocalypse” year and had exquisite bikes from Deus Ex Machina all the way to El Solitario MC.
Motor enthusiast to say the least, I collected the Iron and Air magazines that showcased the show, Thor, and the builder John Ryland. Also picked up the magazine which interviewed Norman Reedus of “The Walking Dead” and “Ride with Norman Reedus”. His personal bike was being built simultaneously with mine, and when the decision makers at The Walking Dead saw the bike, they hired Classified Moto to build the bikes for the show. Same cb750 engine, different setup.
The engine was taken down to the crank and rebuilt from the bottom up. Every ring, seal, gasket, clutch plates, etc. was replaced to yield 74 hp. At approximately 350 lbs., it hits the sweet spot on the fun factor.

Head on over to www.classifiedmoto.com to check them out along with their RESTRICTED series on YouTube. I can’t speak highly enough of John and his team. Meticulous perfectionists that build crazy great bikes.
Price: Considering this is 1 of 1 and a $34,000 level 4 build, I’m asking $17,999 or best offer. Serious inquires only.
