1976 Honda CB750 K6 For Sale by Auction

Fifty-plus years on, it is hard to imagine the impact the Honda CB750 had on the motorcycling world when it was unveiled to a stunned public at the 1968 Tokyo Show. Here for the first time was a mass-produced four within the financial reach of the average enthusiast, and one whose specification made the opposition look obsolete overnight.

The K6 offered here was diverted from Spain (its intended market) by Honda UK and used to familiarise UK dealers with this new model. It then remained in storage at Honda UK's Chiswick HQ until purchased by the Area Service Manager, who is now in a care home, suffering from dementia. In the meantime, the tank and front indicators had seen service on another machine. Bought from the former owner's daughter, the K6 has covered a believed 3.6 'push' kilometres from new and had never been started until recently when, given a new battery and fresh fuel, it fired up first press of the button, just like a Honda should. The original (unfilled) battery was still on the bike, which also retains its original tyres, while an internal inspection of a cylinder and float bowl confirmed that the engine had never run (see photographs on file). To original specification, this 'time warp' CB750 K6 is offered with a VJMC dating letter; NOVA acknowledgement; and a V5C Registration Certificate. The machine will require recommissioning or restoration to a greater or lesser extent and is therefore sold strictly as viewed.

This motorcycle is to be auctioned at our Live and Online Winter Sale, Hanger 113, Bicester Heritage, OX26 5HA.
