Up for auction is my 1972 Honda cb750 cafe. This bike has a clear Michigan title in the previous owners name. Title is signed off by previous owner but isn’t notarized or dated in case that makes a difference in your state.
This bike was built several years ago by a previous owner and is very cool and unique. Not an all out show bike, but a great rider. Paint is decent and shines well. Decals are over top of clear coat and there is some spider cracking and blemishes on the fiberglass rear cowl. Tank has no dents and the inside is nice. Cowl and seat flip open like original, but doesn’t latch, can’t notice while riding. Seat is great and comfortable.
Headlight works only on low beam, brake and tail light work as well. Tail/brake light are part of license plate holder that is swingarm mounted. No turn signals so have to use hand signals. Wiring is there for signals. Tach has been removed and just has a center mounted speedo that works great.
Tires are in great shape, and front and rear brakes work great. Bike is nice and tight, rides smooth and handles well. Slight play in front wheel bearings.
Engine fires right up, and doesn’t even need the choke on a cold start. No spitting or popping and idles nicely and quickly. Revs quick and sounds great. Engine sounds nice and makes no abnormal noises and doesn’t smoke at all. Clutch pull is very easy. Bike pulls out nice and shifts perfect in every gear. Again the bike is an older build and has sat for a while, therefore I would recommend a tune up consisting of a good carb cleaning and new set of points. I say this because once riding the bike is sluggish in the mid range and higher rpms. But runs great putting around and idling, and still revs quick standing still. Also has a very cool set up for synchronizing the carbs. Each carb has a line that runs under the seat. Simply connect your gauges and adjust, much easier than the original method. Carbs are already synchronized because it idles smooth and revs quick.
Overall a great bike that will be sure to draw lots of attention at your local biker breakfast or pretty much wherever you take it. Spend an afternoon giving it a quick tune up and have yourself a nice rider without spending a fortune or a ton of time building it.
