1977 Honda CB750 (Stock and Low Miles)

Up for auction right now on eBay is this very clean and very low mileage 1977 CB750. According to the seller, the bike is in nearly perfect condition, with only a recovered seat as an imperfection (he still has the original with a tear in it if you want it, too). I don’t know if I would feel bad about this bike being converted to a cafe racer. Maybe it’s that I’m not a fan of the color. I don’t know. The new owner can decide…
(Sorry about the poor pictures. Because of the interesting nature of the bike, I decided to post anyways.)

1976 Honda CB400F Super Sport

Before getting into the details of this bike, I just want to say something for the record. I am in no way advocating the tear-down of this motorcycle into a cafe racer or other modified form be it race bike, bobber, chopper, etc., etc., etc…

What we have here is an unrestored, but amazingly clean and beautiful CB400F Super Sport from the year 1976. It only has 6K miles, and the seller is supposedly a factory trained Honda mechanic who has adjusted all necessary doohickies (that’s a technical term for those of you not mechanically inclined) so the bike can be ridden immediately upon purchase. There are a few more pictures on eBay, and the seller has done a good job of describing the tune-up he gave the bike. His feedback is good, with a decent amount of selling over the last year, so if you decide to get in on the bidding or pay the Buy-It-Now price ($6.5K), it should be a pretty safe transaction. Bidding is pretty heavy with 12 bidders taking the price up to $1,925 with 3 days left. Awesome bike for whomever wins the auction!!!

Oh yeah. If you win this bike and then tear it apart to make a cafe racer, you will hear the cries and screams of thousands of classic bike fans who wish you would have started with a beater, and not this nearly off the showroom floor example…
