Honda CB750 1979
A great original example of Honda’s twin cam CB750F from 1979 showing only 14,338 miles backed up by some old MOT’s great classic bike status with the handling and power of a modern bike. With the added benefit of CBX looks without the price tag!
The Suzuki GS750 set new standards in 750 power and handling, simply shredding the once-mighty CB in all performance areas. Honda knew that the other manufacturers would soon respond with their own performance 750s. The single-stick CB had served its maker well, but change was inevitable. The new CB750F that emerged from Soichiro’s fun factory in ’79 was in every way a giant leap ahead of the old CB and a half-step ahead of everyone else’s 750s. Welcome the twin-cam, four-valve CB750F. Although developed concurrently with the six-cylinder CBX, the CB-F was not a downsized copy. The F’s four-valve head mimicked the CBX’s geometry, but the four breathed more efficiently than the six due to straighter intake tracts, bigger carburetors and better porting.
