This 1978 Honda CB 750 K (K8) has been refinished in Candy Jade Green with gold trim, (1975 color option) and is powered by a 736cc air-cooled inline-four mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Other equipment includes a two-up saddle, spoke wheels, a four-into-four chrome exhaust, (Original to the bike), an electric starter, turn signals, and a center stand. The bike was acquired by me, from its original owner in 2017 This CB 750 K is now offered for sale with the original factory owner’s manual and tool kit and a clean Idaho title.
The 4.76-gallon fuel tank and side covers reportedly were refinished in Candy Jade Green (a 1975 color option) by the previous owner. The bike was featured in magazine, which I was able to acquire at the time of sale.
Other features include mid-rise chrome handlebars fitted with dual mirrors and original hand grips, original short-stalk turn signals, and a reupholstered two-up black vinyl seat with a grab strap. Other passenger accommodations include a grab rail on each side and folding foot pegs mounted on the rear subframe.
Original spoke wheels measuring 19″ up front and 17″ out back wear Bridgstone tubeless tires. Suspension is handled by a telescopic front fork and rear custom Hagon shocks with five-way-adjustable spring preloads setting for a 195 lbs rider and a box-type swing arm. Braking is provided by a single front disc and a rear drum. Full documentation is provided.
Instrumentation consists of a 150-mph speedometer, a tachometer with an 8,500-rpm redline, and a five-digit odometer that shows a little over 16400 miles. A turn-signal indicator is set between the gauges, and status lights for oil, neutral, and high beam are located in the tachometer. Aftermarket voltage meter monitors charging system. New battery was installed on 14JUL18 and has been on float charge system.
The 736cc SOHC inline-four is the last year the SOHC was offered. The engine was rated at 67 horsepower with a dry weight of 218 Kg This is the bike that everybody loved and wanted to have. Nobody cared about anything else besides Honda’s CB 750. This is probably the most important machine in the history of motorcycling, so important that a line was established before and after the CB 750.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the bike, it is road ready and will make someone really proud. It has won 3rd place at the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club of Idaho in 2014 and was featured in the VJM Magazine Volume 36 / Number 2 April/May 2015 issue. Magazine will be provided.
It has been fully documented by me and prior to my possession, all maintenance is up to date, maintenance records date back to 11NOV2012, last valve adjustment/sparkplugs/dwell/carb clean and float set was done at 16007 miles on 14JUL2018
registration is current and tank is full with E-free gasoline. Sorry, no trades. Clear title in my name, ready for the season.
