The long-heralded CB 750 four-cylinder production model was launched by Honda at the Tokyo Show in 1968, at last a production four, keenly priced and with the full weight of Honda’s design expertise and marketing flair behind it. It was to be the forerunner of a range of fours from 350cc upwards which included the CB 550, introduced in 1974. It succeeded the 500 but had better low-down torque and early models developed 50bhp at 8,500rpm. This example comes from private ownership and is presented in correct black livery. We are advised that it was the subject of restoration in 2002 and condition in all departments is described by the vendor as good. The machine appears to be to factory specification in all major respects. It is offered with a Swansea registration document.
