Default Honda CB 750 $135,300.00

After 42 years riding Motorcycles and giving them up 5 years ago I decided I must have a vintage CB750 Honda again.
but this is just crazy - current bid $135,300.00 on Ebay with 97 Bids.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/331120055291...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
guess that one is not for me

but I did find a mint 1974 CB750 in NC just like the one I had in 1974 in NC .
hope to have it delivered in about 10 days.

Pic was when I was a young USMC Sgt with my first son

Love the old inline 4's. That prototype CB belongs in a museum, if someone rides it they're crazy.

That one on eBay is a sandcast model. Sandcast are very hard to find. Any of the old CB750's are very desirable in good condition, sand cast models even more so. Knew a guy up north that had one. Does not surprise me how much the one on eBay is up to. Glad you found one you like.

My uncle bought a brand new cb750k in the early 80's and hid it from my grandparents at our house... Man that thing would fly... Looked just like yours, I was a kid but man it was fun...

I had a 74 CB750 burnt orange tank and side covers. Finally sold it after 12K miles of 105 in third gear in shorts and flipflops and sunglasses..... First and only street bike. Could beat a Kaw900 off the line but watched him walk away in 2nd gear. Too much fun....lean foward, rev to redline and let go of the clutch!! Ye Haw!!

I love the styling of those old bikes. In junior college I had a 1969 Honda CB175. It was all I could afford but it got me from point A to point B.

It may be Barber bidding on it. They certainly have the coin to buy it. If you like motorcycles, you need to make it a point to go to their museum in B'ham. It is stunning.

Loved those Honda's. Very comfortable ride. Bought a new 500/4, put a windjammer faring on it and rode it from South Florida to San Diego, CA in 1978 Took 6 days of steady riding during the day, hotels at night. Had to catch a ship in Diego. Finally sold it and bought a new 750/4. Good old days.
