1973 Honda CB750 Cafe Racer


Okay. First things first. Before we even discuss the motorcycle, please do not EVER change an eBay listing photo with Photoshop! Look at pictures 1 and 2 below to see the reason why. My issue with that not withstanding…

Here’s a completed cafe racer up for auction on eBay. It’s a 1973 Honda CB750 that has had most of the necessary modifications done to it, with only a couple of things that need to be done by the next owner. Clubman bars… Check. Cafe racer style seat… Check. Ped slicer on the fender… Check. Cool rocker paint job… Check.

So what’s missing? A cool exhaust and rear-sets. Usually I rail against missing rear-sets, but in this case, I think the bike needs a better exhaust far more urgently than a change of footpeg location. Can you say cobbled together.

Will it sell for the asking price of $3,500? I doubt it. There are four offers on the bike and it is still posted, so the current offers must be less, neh? Mostly I posted this bike because of the Photoshopping…



Bike with Photoshop. See the difference?
