Found on eBay: 1975 Honda CB750

Reader Contribution by Landon Hall

Our weekly wander through eBay popped up not one but two Honda CB750s we’d be happy to have in our garage. The first is a quite original 1975 CB750 with just over fifteen thousand miles on it. It would be a great rider or the basis for a beautiful show bike with a little work.

According to the auction, this CB has gone through a partial restoration. The frame and swingarm have been repainted and the engine cases have been cleaned. The top end of the engine has also been taken apart, the valves were lapped and new seals and gaskets were installed. The carbs have been cleaned and synchronized, the oil and plugs have been changed and the valves have been adjusted, and overall, this looks to be a pretty nice bike aside from a bit of rust on the spokes, headers and pipes.

We also came across a very nice 1970 Honda CB750 with only five thousand miles on the clock. According to the auction, the bike has been stored most of its life, and everything works just fine. The current owner rebuilt the carbs and changed all the fluids when he got the bike. He has since drained the gas from the bike and stored it in his house, as you see in the photos. He claims that all it needs to be ready to run is gas.
