1973 Honda CB750K2 - original factory OEM brown metallic paint color. Ex-Honda motorcycle dealer selling personal motorcycle from my collection. I built this bike in 1973/74, in the Cafe Racer style, prior to the manufacturer's going in that direction. It is not stock as you can see from the pictures but every effort was made to retain as many stock features as possible while converting the look from the street bike appointments to the Cafe Racer style. The fairing is from England (Paul Dunstall), the clip-ons by Tommaselli. The front fender is from Honda Motor Company's 750 race bike program back when they won Daytona in the early 70's. The rear fender is the stock chrome fender, but painted to match the original paint color of the tank and side covers. The engine guard is from Honda but cut in half and powder coated with a tab added to mount the Cibie driving lights. In 1977, I purchased from Honda: a 750F rear swing arm to get Honda's OEM single disc brake; 750F front forks to get Honda's OEM double front disc brakes; and a new stock motor which I then installed adding an 810 kit by engine builder Randy Carabelli. The impetus for the 1977 motor change was to get a smoother shifting gearbox and the new design 77-78 accelerator pump style carburetors, rather than the cable slide operated carbs that were stock in 1973. The exhaust is a 4-into-1 RC engineering in black. The wheels are Morris from Ohio and painted gold to match Honda's OEM gold color on the fuel tank. The rear shocks are new by Hagon. The bike is only used on a limited basis and has very few miles on the new motor. I recently went over the carburetors, master, brake cylinders, calipers, installed new rear shocks, and changed the fork oil. There is no item or detail that I have not addressed to ensure the motorcycle's proper operation. Original owner. 2080 original miles/570 miles on the motor since installation.
