Found on eBay: Carpy's Honda CB750 Café


Tags: ,


As the eBay ad says, "Yes this is the bike you saw in the magazine. What magazine? Any one." Well, yes, it was featured in many magazines, but it was featured on the cover of Motorcycle Classics nearly four years ago, and it's still one of our favorites. Currently owned by Old Bike Barn (, the bike is being auctioned off by Rice Paddy Motorcycles. According to Bear from Old Bike Barn, he's enjoyed the bike but is ready to pusue some different projects.

According to the auction, this is Carpy's first bike built in America, and it incorporates such features as finned engine covers, a fiberglass tailpiece, a Borrani-style H rim front wheel, a race gas tank, individual air filters, a 4-into-1 exhaust, a chrome swingarm, remote reservoir shocks, a Lucas-style tail light, clubman handlebars, drilled brakes for weight reduction, and rearsets for better ground clearance.
