Lot Details
c.1981 Honda CB750K
Registration no. NOK 670X
Frame no. RC04-4001193
Engine no. RC04E-2305352
Nine years after introducing the revolutionary CB750 to a stunned world, Honda moved the concept forward in the shape of the CB750K. A totally new design, the CB750K brought Honda's Grand Prix-developed twin-overhead-cam, four-valves-per-cylinder technology to road bikes for the first time. Styling was up-to-the-minute, but there was a welcome return to the four-pipe exhaust system of the 1969 original. 'The tank and seat unit flow gently rearward to a massive tail-light unit and the whole effect is enhanced by a lovely but expensive four-into-four exhaust system,' declared Bike magazine, continuing: 'The bike's standard of finish is quite superb - lacquered aluminium castings are especially impressive and the chrome and paintwork are of an extremely high quality.' The CB750K's straight-line performance impressed too: 127.5mph flat out and a standing quarter-mile time of under 13 seconds. Apparently substantially original, this GT750 was purchased by the vendor's deceased partner at date unknown and was last taxed for the road to 30th November 2009. Both side panels are missing but nothing is known about the machine's mechanical condition. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, 'NOK 670X' currently displays a total of 41,512 miles on the odometer. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered without reserve.
