1970 Honda CB750 KO
1970 Honda CB750 KO. This beautifully presented, early K0 model has been part of a private collection of 1970s superbikes for the last 11 years. Authentically restored using genuine Honda parts wherever possible. Restoration included a full set of genuine Honda indicators, a new wiring harness, a modern combined rectifier/regulator for reliability (original parts are supplied with the machine), new coils, points and condenser, and a new battery. The carbs have been completely overhauled and the correct mirrors for early Hondas are fitted. The machine has stainless steel fittings where possible, including all engine cross head bolts, engine mountings and full rear wheel spindle and chain adjusters, (original replated fasteners are included).
The machine comes with a Yamiya seat sourced from Japan at great expense. The wheels have been rebuilt with DID wheel rims. New chain, sprockets, and cush drive rubbers for rear hub have all been replaced and the front and rear brakes fully overhauled. The machine comes with the lower K1 handlebars fitted with a K1 master cylinder hose and the shorter cables, however the original handlebars, longer master cylinder hose and cables come with the machine. There is the original tool kit under the seat and an owner’s handbook. This 1970 Honda CB 750 bike is UK registered on a current V5C.
It is fitted with the original HM 300 exhaust system and original dampers. This KO is in near concours condition throughout and is probably the very best available today. It looks fantastic and would enhance any bike collection!
