Regular readers of Classic Motorcycle Mechanics will be familiar with this particular CB750, which was fully restored by the magazine’s editor, Rod Gibson, featuring in editions from November 2004 to May 2005, when it appeared on the front cover. It is an example of the ‘K1’ model, which incorporated a number of improvements to the original design, including a larger fuel tank, chain oiler, revised oil tank, side panels and seat, together with the rocker arm throttle operation inherited from the short-lived K0. Manufactured in October 1970, the machine was sold new to its first owner (in the USA) in 1971 and comes with the relevant bill of sale. Subsequently imported into the UK, it was re-registered in this country by its second owner in 1993 and purchased by the vendor in 2003. Not used since completion and presented in ‘as new’ condition throughout, the machine is offered with restoration invoices, SORN and Swansea V5C document. An Allen screw engine-case kit, ‘flat’ handlebars and electronic ignition are the only notified deviations from factory specification. Offered without reserve.
