1974 Honda CB750 Cafe Racer


When I first saw this bike, my initial thoughts were about it’s “British-ness”. I don’t think that’s a word, but none-the-less the bike gave off an anglo vibe. Then, after pondering it for a bit, I realized it was the chrome. To me, all of the chrome (fenders, accessories, bars) just brought visions of a tricked out brit bike. Or maybe I was just channeling Quadrophenia with a mind full of 10 mirror scooters racing around the UK.

And then I noticed the exhaust pipe… 😦 The buyer of this bike will probably fix it, but why? JC Whitney can supply cheepo mufflers that look better than a piece of straight black pipe attached to chrome headers.

There are 4 hours and 30 minutes left in the auction as I write this, and bidding is only at $1,325. So if you are willing to put a set of mufflers on a 30K mile CB750, this is actually quite a good buy at this price. Good luck if you choose to bid!
