Lot Details
c.1976 Honda CB750K
Registration no. VUG 309R
Frame no. CB750K-2708972
Engine no. CB750E-2708974
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. '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.

Imported from the USA, this pristine CB750K was fully restored in 2010 by Rising Sun Restorations, one of this country's leading restorers of Japanese motorcycles. Only genuine new Honda parts were used in the rebuild, many of them now unobtainable, their cost amounting to more than the asking price. Presented in excellent condition and ready to go, the machine is offered with owner's manual, tool kit, MoT/tax and Swansea V5. Bills are available on request.
