Honda CB 750 is coming together...

Little by little, the Honda CB 750 is coming together…

We have been hard at work getting the 1971 Honda CB 750 Cafe Racer together.  Procrastination kicks in for installing the engine, if only for age and lack of strength…

’71 Honda CB 750 Cafe Racer gets the custom treatment…

Tabs were shaped and the hoop cut to size in order to weld them in place.  Couple coats of primer on the finalized seat pan and cowl – we are starting to get something that resembles a bike.  This Honda CB 750 Cafe Racer will not have the full “cafe” treatment, because the requirement for 2-up riding prevents installing an uncomfortable seat.  Also, the tighter position while riding with a passenger will necessitate the driver pegs to remain in their mid position. This will allow the passenger to enjoy the ride as well.

The passenger pegs present their own issue on this Honda CB 750 Cafe Racer, considering the stock mounts were part of the mufflers.  With a 4-1 header/muffler combo being installed, we will need to fab some mounts for the rear peg position.

Stay tuned for more progress, coming fast and furious…

  1. I am thinking about putting a basket case 1974 (frame)/1978 (engine) Honda CB 750 together. Before I start anything, I want to register it first to make sure everything will be legitimate before spending thousands of dollars on the rebuild. So, my main fear is the condition of the engine. Do you work on engines or do you know anyone who does? Thanks, John

    1. Hey John! Thanks so much for reaching out to MotoPreserve. We have done work on these cb750’s, but unfortunately have too many projects at the moment to take on a rebuild.

      Please DO take the time to get a title for it – spending money only to find out they won’t issue a title is a heartbreaker. It’s well worth the hassle to take care of up front.

      Do you know what type of work the bike needs? Also, where are you located? Some more info may help us direct you to a good mechanic.
