A little over a week ago I drove from Eastern Virginia to Columbia SC and back to bring another CB750 home. Since I ended up keeping a K74 I finished recently I recently finished I needed one to bring back and try and re-coup some money to the motorcycle account. (I am convinced of two things, no one near me ever sells a vintage motorcycle I can afford, and if I buy one it will have to be a blue Honda CB750. ) This is a 1975 K5 with 8,500 actual miles on the clock and judging from all of the added on 70's goodies, it was once owned by Austin Powers. It was left to a Grandson after the death of the original owner and of course has not been on the street in many years. Overall the bike is very restorable, clean title, great compression, and from the initial tear down in very good condition, of course the years of neglect have taken their toll but luckily it was stored indoors. It has spark, the inside of the gas tank looks new, and hopefully it will run. There are really some unique period pieces on the bike, Shoei bags, the period floor boards, the gas gauge tank top, the worlds biggest heal toe shifter, and a sissy bar that would make a great rose bush trellis. I am leaning toward keeping it period cruiser and let the new owner take in whatever direction he deems. I will post some shots as process progresses if there is interest, but it won't be as in depth as the K74, I am really going to sell this one, I am motorcycle poor......
