Honda CB description

1976 HONDA CB750K6


This offering is for one, completely restored 1976 CB750K6, VIN number CB750-2567568, engine serial number CB750E-2457049.  


I'm truly having a hard time letting "Little Blue" go, but it's time to find her a new home. This bike was restored from a very nice original low mileage 750.  My goal in restoring it, was to give it a sporty feel and look with a few bolt on changes, but I kept it as true to a 750 as possible. It could be taken further down the Brat/Cafe path, or easily made original... better yet, ride the heck out of it just like it is! It never fails to turn heads. This would make an excellent steed for the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride next year!  


The overall condition of the bike before restoration was very good.

Note- The bike was purchased with the wrapped MAC exhaust.


  • Top Overhaul was performed on the engine

  • Cylinders and pistons were standard size and new rings were installed

  • Head and barrel surfaces excellent. 
  • APE heavy duty cylinder studs installed
  • Connecting rod side clearances good
  • Rod Pin end diameter good

  • All seals and gaskets replaced

  • Oil Pump good

  • Clutch disassembled and all friction surfaces were flat and still within new limits

  • Shifting mechanism is excellent and changes gears exceptionally well.  

  • ALL JIS cover screws were replaced with OEM HONDA screws

  • Alternator stator checked good

  • ALL aluminum covers had scratches removed and then hand polished

  • Valves clearances set

  • Intake and exhaust valves and seats were in excellent condition.  Ground valves and seats. Guide and valve clearance was excellent except one intake valve was slightly out of tolerance.  Replaced both with new parts.  

  • Carburetors rebuilt with new floats and jets installed

  • Dyna S electronic ignition, new coils, new spark plug wires and NGK spark plugs installed for reliability and little to no maintenance.  Starts on first crank or kick.



Frame, Wheels, Brakes, Fenders and Swing Arm

  • Frame professionally stripped and powder coated

  • Frame was checked and verified for straightness

  • Wheel rims cleaned and polished with new tires and tubes installed

  • Front and rear brakes were cleaned.  Both drums and shoes are still within new limits. All visible parts polished to new appearance

  • Rear brake light switch was replaced with new HONDA part

  • Front and rear fenders are excellent and only required cleaning and polish

  • Swing arm rebuilt and new shocks installed


Electrical

  • New main wiring harness installed

  • ALL electrics WORK!

  • Regulator and rectifier were replaced with a modern solid state unit for reliability.  


Tank and Side Covers

  • Beautiful New Yamiya Tank and side covers!!!

Note - The fuel selector valve is located on the right side instead of the left.


Front Forks


  • Forks were rebuilt and polished

  • New boot gaiters

  • New triple tree bearings and races installed (original style)   

 

When possible, I purchased NOS or new Honda parts.
