Engine no. CB750E-2250162
Honda's legendary CB 750 SOHC "superbike" has to be in motorcycling's most significant top three machines. Four cylinders. 750cc. A disc brake. Handsome styling. Excellent reliability. Serious performance. GP-esque engineering. Electric starting. And those four beautiful pipes. Its look and sound captured everyone's attention in the late 1960s, and the way it roared down the road shook their souls to their foundations.

"From the moment the public first laid eyes on it at the 1968 Tokyo Show," wrote Motorcyclist when it crowned the CB 750 Motorcycle of the Century in its 100th Anniversary edition, "the CB 750 was an unqualified success. With its visually imposing inline engine and four gleaming headers, the CB 750 looked like a street-legal GP bike. And with a 125-mph top speed, it had the performance to match."

The model presented here went through a deep modification including notably some Marchionni Magnesium racing wheels, Brembo brakes and stainless steel brake lines. Was also added a Ducati fiberglass replica gas tank lined for Ethanol gas. Some 29mm Kehin racing carbs were installed as well as a 4 into 1 header.
