Guess who has someone new to cuddle up with at night in the garage!?!?!?
1971 Honda CB750 K
WOO HOO!!!!!!!
My uncle gave it to me, I just had to pay for shipping.
Flag had to go, these were before it came home







HOME IN WASHINGTON!!!!


First thing I did was take the box off.
In the future, I'll be putting on straight bars and a flat seat.
Other than that, I'm not planning to to very much, but you know how that goes!

Yeah, I'm thinking of the straight bars.
I don't know yet, definitely no more than 2 inch rise.
These bars are screaming old man bike...
Even though I may be close, I don't want to push getting there.

Nice ride ! I had a 1975 CB500 Twin and also a 1978 CB550four, great little cruisers.
Loose the bars :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: I had 2" risers. Perfect.:cool:

I'll play around a bit wtih ideas, but I am thinking I want to possibly go back to stock colors.
I want to badge the tank! I love the old Honda wings, but if I go with more of a cafe' look, the new ones might look good too.

Nice present/find buddy! I miss my '75 every time I see a 750/4. What 4 into one is that (pls tell me it's not a Kerker)? Even the fork gators look pristine, Dayum!

p.s., yer not old yet pal...not yet...



but wait, it's coming........................................

Congrats! Sounds like a fun project.
Gotta get rid of those crash bars too, unless you want to do easy-rider style!
Those look a lot like original brake hoses. You might find the braking a little lacking in confidence inspiration!

Cool bike! I restored one a few years ago - I never should have sold it.
Here's a pick with the stock Honda bars, I later replaced them with some "Superbike" bars that were lower. Bent Bike in Lynnwood has tons of bars to choose from. davidsilverspares.com may become your best friend! (repro seats etc.)

Are you from here?
That means you'll be at the meet this year if so, right?

I had a 1970 cb 750 and a 1971 parts bike... The cathederal pipes are worth a ton and super hard to find.

Adam if your uncle has the oem pipes I'd say go full on restoration that one looks good :D
