Frame no. RC04-1000732
Having blazed the multi-cylinder trail in 1968 with the trend-setting CB750, Honda found itself upstaged by Kawasaki’s Z1, which was not only larger at 903cc but boasted two overhead camshafts to the Honda’s one. Honda’s riposte, the 16-valve CB900F, did not arrive until 1979, by which time Kawasaki had moved on to the Z1000. Unlike Kawasaki, Honda had not turned its back on the 750 class and offered a CB750F alongside the larger CB. Bike magazine wrung a top speed of 119.6mph out of their test CB750F back in 1981 yet still managed to average 45 miles per gallon overall. This CB750F was imported from Japan by DK Motorcycles in 1996. Unused for the last five years, it was running very well when placed in dry storage. Sold to reduce the owner’s collection and create garage space, the machine is offered with SORN and old/current Swansea V5/V5C documents. A total of 33,054 kilometres (approximately 20,500 miles) is displayed on the odometer. No reserve.
