After much deliberation I have decided to sell my rather nice CB750K2. I use this bike regularly but I have decided its quite a similar riding experience to my Z900 and I do need to thin down my collection.

This is a UK bike not an import like so many others for sale these days. Those of you who know the history of UK CB750Ks will know that, after the K1, the UK only got K2 bikes until the K6 came along. Hence this bike is on a 1975 'N' registration. I have it on good authority that production in Japan dictated that frame numbers continued to follow the normal K2 numbering sequence but engine numbers changed to follow the K3, K4 and K5 sequencing depending on when the bike was manufactured. This bike matches that numbering sequence with the frame starting 2106*** and the engine 2425***

The extensive history file shows details of all the DVLA held ownership details as well as copies of the original DVLA registration document for its first registration by Tanner Bros Motors (Trading as Ryes of Fulham) on 16 May 1975 (the current engine and frame numbers are recorded on that document).

Its a fairly low owner bike, just 8 previous owners in 45 years, and has obviously been looked after all its life because, not only is it in excellent condition, but originality, or genuine Honda, has been at the forefront of the previous owners who have refreshed it in the past (including me). Last owner had it 20 years. It has a genuine Honda exhaust system, mudguards, wheels and 99% of its cycle parts and nuts and bolts are original or genuine NOS Honda.

When I got it a few years ago it was already very nice but I gave it a refresh with electronic ignition, new coil, leads, plug caps and an engine service (valve clearances, oil and filter and air filter all changed - genuine Honda items used). I have also recently had the carbs off for an ultrasonic clean and all jets cleaned out and float levels checked. The bike starts easily and runs well. I use it to commute regularly (40 mile round trip, only when its dry!) and it has performed faultlessly. In the usual CB750 style it needs to warm up before settling to idle but this is the only niggle I have with her.

I have recently replaced some of the chrome pieces such as fitting new genuine Honda exhaust clamps, indicator stems and I also replaced the front brake lines.

Rather unusually for a bike of this age, the bike has the Honda HM341 exhaust system which would have been original fitment back in 1975. All four pipes are in pretty good condition although one pipe has had a tiny repair to the top of it near the seam - looks like a sort of epoxy-metal repair (perhaps JB Weld or similar). I was told by the previous owner that it was done 22 years ago and it shows no sign of needing further repair.

I would say someone has had the frame paint refreshed in the past and, to my eyes, a very good job has been made of it. Its certainly not something I have thought about re-doing as it looks very nice and the finish looks in keeping with what would have been done when Honda did it. 

The extensive history file that comes with it shows that previous owners have maintained it meticulously with many oil changes recorded and the bike appears to have a had a major refresh around 2000 to 2005. It had a new clutch around this time (at 8000 miles). It currently shows recorded mileage at 14200 miles - I do not know if this is genuine but I do have almost every MOT from 2018 back to 1996. As I say, this mileage might change as I do use her to get to and from work regularly through spring and summer (one of the photos was taken at my workplace last week).

As you can see it comes with the higher handlebars usually found on US bikes. UK bikes usually had the flatter bars but Im told some 1st owners did take up the option to have the higher bars from new. Either way, I prefer the higher bars but its an easy enough job to source the genuine flatter type should you feel the need.

I have two keys for it - one is the original Honda key.

Tyres are very good Avons.

The bike comes with genuine Honda Owners manual and Toolkit and tool bag.

Bad points? Well if your fussy some of the chrome parts have some very minor pitting but its so insignificant it has never bothered me. I cant really think of anything else.

Overall a very nice UK CB750K2 which could be taken to show standard with not too much money.

I do believe this bike wants for nothing except to be ridden and enjoyed. Nothing beats seeing a bike in the flesh so I would advise anyone who is interested to view it before making an offer. That said I would not hold you to any accepted offer should you find the bike does not match the description.

Cash on collection or bank transfer preferred. No paypal except for the deposit of £500 which must be made within 24 hours of any offer being accepted.

I know of an excellent bike courier should you need one - around £130 to most of the UK mainland.

Viewings welcome and encouraged.

Thanks for reading this far!
