1978 Honda Cb on 2040-motos
Honda CB tech info
Honda CB description
Last year for the single overhead cam series(SOHC) .....all totally unmolested, unrestored and original.....the black F series had more performance than previous models with larger valve set at improved angle and a racier cam for better breathing.............5 speed trans and triple disc brakes.
this bike was traded in at a Honda dealer in Saskatchewan Canada in the mid 80's and it sat on a display shelf untill the early nineties when I purchased it and since then has sat in heated storage.Before it went on display the gas tank and carbs were drained and some oil poured into each cylinder.A couple of times a year the engine was kicked over several times to keep an oil film on the cylinder walls but it has not been started .You would be responsible to get it up and running if that was your desire.
This CB750F was actually built in the 4th month of 1978 so is one of the last ones of the SOHC series as I believe the next month or two,early production of the Twin Cam or DOHC 1979 model series started.(totally different engine)
It has the original owners manual and tool kit under the seat.
Hate to part with this but I need to slim down my personal collection due to financial reasons and space considerations.
So if you would like to own a next to new original example here is a rare opportunity.
Selling in non running condition.
I do have a shop (previous Honda dealer for 30 years)and can get it up and going but for extra cost....some people prefer the satisfaction of doing the work themselves.(this is a personal bike and is not a shop one)
My shop does have experience building a sturdy shipping crate as per the last picture and I did ship a CB1100F to the UK in 2014.
The crate construction cost would be $325 USD ...the dimensions are 90" long....47'' high....33" wide...approx weight with the bike and crate is 700 lbs..
You would be responsible for arranging the freight company and shipping insurance.
my shop 306-693-4140 9:30 am to 5pm Mon-Friday..Saturday 9:30 to 4 pm

A lawnmower powered by the engine from a Honda VTR1000F Superhawk has set a new Guinness record for the world’s fastest mower. Honda UK revealed its 996cc V-Twin-powered Mean Mower last summer, claiming it had been tested at a speed of 100 mph but could reach a theoretical top speed of 133 mph. Those claims were put to the test in March at the IDIADA Proving Ground in Tarragona, Spain, with an official Guinness World Records adjudicator on hand to observe.Thu, 07 Jun 2012
Dave Molyneux and passenger Patrick Farrance won the second Sidecar TT race to sweep the sidecar class in the 2012 Isle of Man TT. The duo won the first Sidecar TT race earlier in the week where they led every lap but this time Molyneux and Farrance had to mount a comeback on the final lap for the win.

Need something to do on August Bank Holiday weekend, then read below: "Although the South West Motorcycle Show has been running at the Westpoint Arena for the last sixteen years, 2010 is the first year that the show hosts the all-new Vertical Trix European Stunt Championship. The show contains all the usual attractions that have been delivered to motorcyclists from over the south-west and further afield since 1994 – including all the appropriate trade stands, and with strong support from local dealers – plus attractions such a a dyno on site, restaurant, bar, bike displays, live music and of course the live action arena. Although the action in the show arena has previously been stunt displays, rather than a full-on competition.
