1978 CB750 SOHC Project?


When you think about stinkin’ fast Japanese cafe racers, the CB750 certainly comes to mind as one of the easiest to create. Parts are readily available, the motors can be built up to good horsepower levels, and a fully modified CB750 cafe racer is the real deal.

I found this bike on eBay, and although it is a bit expensive at a starting price of $1,400, it appears to be rust free (it’s in California). If Comstar wheels are your thing, this one comes with them. And it has a non-vintage look exhaust that could probably be sold to help amortize the cost of the project. Lots of miles and a non-1978 tank, but pretty clean for all of that…

    You’re right. An easy project, scrap the v&h exhaust for a period correct Kerker, put individual pod filters on, modify the seat to fit the tail section, clip on’s or clubmans, a cool paint job and you’re a cafe racer. And 38k miles isn’t that bad if the bike has been maintained. And it is a bit high priced
