1970 Honda CB750

posted in: Online Around the Net | 0

“Here is a completely original and extremely low-mile 1970 Honda CB750. Although a ’70 model, this is a true first-generation Honda CB750, albeit one built months after the first 7414 sand-cast examples rolled off the assembly line during mid- and late 1969. At some point in the fall of 1969, Honda had to begin legally labeling brand-new machines as ‘1970’ models, and this is one of those. The odometer reads 2604 miles, documentable as actual mileage.”

He bought this bike 8 years ago and I can’t help put wonder what he thinks it’s worth today.  Bidding has crossed $10,000 but the reserve has not lifted.  These bikes are really coming into collector value.  I hope they don’t become commodities like early Ferraris that are bought and sold on speculation by auction houses out to make a profit.

This sold for $16,999 on June 24, 2011.
