We have taken our time with the restoration of this motorcycle. Due to the relatively good condition the motorcycle was in when originally acquired we deliberated over weather we should do a full strip down restoration or leave in an original condition. We decided to do both. The engine and gearbox are in excellent condition along with allot of other components. So what we did do is detailed below.
As a consequence of the modifications that we have carried out with the suspension the bike handles extremely well. Front forks look original, rears are certainly different than stock but also look the part. Upgrading to a full electronic ignition system provides trouble free starting, better performance right through the rev range and far better fuel economy. Best of all, absolutely no maintenance, as there are not points to wear out or adjust.

A little bit about the 1972 Honda CB750K2
The CB750K introduced in 1969 divided the history into before and after. First mass-produced four-cylinder, world’s first production streetbike with hydraulic disc brake. That’s Honda’s original superbike. For years the rumors of a production of a four-cylinder had floated through the annual motorcycle shows, however, it was not believed that it would be released. They all said that it would be “too complex”, or “too heavy” or “too expensive”. They were all wrong and Honda managed to show them all, with a sohc four-cylinder production motorcycle that required less maintenance than the typical English single, and at 480 pounds weighed less than some twins at the time. Most of all, they had to admit that its $1495 price tag was a steal.
