    Honda CB750 SOHC

    https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/mot...ac4bd3c9d9c5cb

    So. now I have bought one again, it appears as if the bloody things are everywhere!

    Does anybody want to club together and do a deal on this stuff? Prefer Auckland based.

    I dont mind the one in bits with the engine apart....

    The idea would be someone buys it and we go halves and someone picks it up then ships the balance of the stuff down to me. (at my cost clearly). Probably a pallet but I would talk to Biketranz. Clearly we would need a "Who gets what and who pays what" policy but buying in bulk like this is the way forward.

    Looks like a reasonable start price to me.

    Start price can only be considered reasonable if u know how far from the actual wanted price it is! It is oft used as a hook for the gullible.
    CB750's of this ilk - unrestored are worth about $5- $8 each. A set of pipes new OEM is worth about $2500.
    I bought mine (75 rego K2) for $3500 in 2010, spent $5000 on restoration and sold it for $8500 in 2012. No profit..but got a couple of years of fun, learnt how to rebuild and got all my inputs back. It was worth $10k according to the buyer.
    I think this seller will be looking for double or more the start price here.

    $8k start was the reserve - they are selling NOW. Highest bidder wins. Be interesting to see what they go for.

    Are Honda 750/4's the next 'big thing"?

    Does the riding experience will live up to the expectation?

    I'm starting to get FOMO.

    It would have to sell for about 5K if new owner intended doing a full resto.

    These days I think I'd rather someone else does all the work.

    No...that was back in 67 or so...then they were the next 'big thing'...although they have always been the 'big thing', from then on...if, like me and possibly HDC, you are a Hondaphile...

    I was briefly with a 500/4 but after buying a 900 Ducati in the 80's never looked at podgy 4 cylinder bikes again.

    I rode around Aussie on a 750/4 K2 in '79. Weeping headgasket in Darwin and broke the rear subframe after hitting too many concrete cattle stops at speed (rode into Townsville with my left hand holding the rear of the bike off the rear tyre!) otherwise fine. Rode from Darwin to Perth in the days when the road near Broome was unsealed - lots of bulldust hiding potholes. The Ducati 860GTS often ran out of gas and the Moto Guzzi Le Mans caught fire after a minor spill cracked a spark plug and ignited the petrol the slopped out of the gas tank. For Aussie roads the Honda was fine, but today bikes are more powerful, lighter, smoother and handle much better (e.g. my Aprilia). Still I have lots of very fond memories from that trip and some less so (like falling asleep riding over the Nullarbor).

    Had this in my old pics not sure who it is. Crazy Sth Islander I think? (did Owen Galbraith ride hondas early on ?).
    Anyway those were the days

    You'd never go hungry with Nigella Gaz.
    If it weren't for flashbacks...I'd have no memory at all..
