Honda CB description

Up for bid is my 1971 Honda CB750 K1 motorcycle.  I am the second owner, having bought it in September of 1972.  (See the date on the title picture).  This bike has been carefully maintained by me for the last 44 years.  It has always been indoor stored and serviced on a regular basis through the years.

It has a new battery, and a brand new professional paint job.  It is done in the Candy Garnet Brown color that was available on the 1971 model.  Recently tuned by a longtime Honda shop mechanic. It has 26,450 miles on it and the gauge faces are NOS.

Also, included with the bike are the original owners manual, the original tool kit and the Michigan motorcycle plate from 1971.  I am also offering the shop manual and parts manual with this deal.  I  will include 5 books each detailing the workings and history of the CB 750 by Honda.  I have included a picture of all of these items.

Hard to believe it has been over 44 years since I first rode this awesome bike, time really does fly.  All of the lights light, blinkers blink and brakes brake.  Over the years I didn't ride as much as I used to, but I always fired it up and rode it a bit after a long Winter to assure that it stayed in good running order.

 I have seen other CB750's sell for tens of thousand dollars and am sure they are sandcast models. This is NOT a sandcast bike, but it as clean as they come.  It is still a head turner and I still have people complimenting me on it wherever I take it.  I will list this in as is condition and wish everyone luck in the bidding.

I have the bike for sale locally and I reserve the right to end this auction at any time.  This listing is for pick up only, however if you want it shipped, I will work with your shipper to get it sent to you.  I also have a pickup truck and could work out a deal to bring it to the winning bidder for a price.

New: Venhill 888 fast-action twistgrips

Fri, 01 Mar 2013

CONTROL specialist Venhill has launched its new 888 range of bike-specific fast action twistgrips.  Supplied complete with the company's top of the range Featherlight cables, the kits are designed for a straightforward replacement of the factory-fitted equipment.  Bike-specific kits are now available for the Honda CBR600F, Kawasaki ZX-6R/ZX-10R, Suzuki GSX-R600/750, Triumph 675 Daytona and Yamaha R1/R6, among others, with prices from £105. Here's Venhill's description of the new product: "Manufactured with a robust CNC machined alloy body, the 888 fast action twistgrip provides a choice of two settings and is supplied with two rotors so that riders can select the throttle action that best suits the riding conditions.  Settings can be changed swiftly by undoing the two set screws securing the throttle body and changing the rotor. On the fastest setting there is 80° of rotation, (taking up 36mm of the cable), which is typically 45% faster than 'standard' throttles.
