The stablemate for my old CB750 is home at last. What do yall think?





The brown one is a '72 model that needs just a few finishing touches. I just got it from Radbikers and Pr8hed. Awesome job on the resto guys. Thanks you very much Doug and Becky.

:shock: Holy Cow! They are beautiful.

I had a gold one brand new 31 years ago.

I drove my pregnant wife to her check ups on that bike. Brings back some amazing memories.

The thing under the seat that looks like a oil tank is a oil tank. Galute I need those two stable mates to keep my 75 cb750f company. Really nice bikes

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Snoppy is right, it is an oil tank, they are dry sump engines.
Hopefully my next one will be a F model Snop. Those SS are cool bikes.

It was shipped Dice. Allied Van Lines has a special division for bikes. I recommed them. I have had two shipped. Painless.

Very nice examples of the CB750 four. Sure does bring back memorys for me. My first street bike was a slightly used red 1976 CB750 four just like the one in the second picture. I bought it in 76 for 1800 dollars when I was seventeen. The bike looked so big back then, and I still remember the thrill of the first ride on that bike.

Great looking bikes Galute.:1st:

Crossed into triple digits for the first time on one of those. Also owned a 550 SS from that era.

Our newspaper delivery guy had one when they first came out. All of us dirtbikers would go to a certain stretch of road in the afternoon and wait for him to ride by. Never seen someone go so fast riding a wheelie before!

Still great loking bikes after all these years.

I never had a 750, but I did have the CB 500 4. Loved that bike.
