The very first Honda CB750s with the sandcast engine cases are the ones everyone wants, but they’re getting a lot harder to find. This one is unrestored, with only necessary cosmetic work as needed. It was repainted in the original blue and the tank is a NOS replacement.
The NOS tank emblems come from noted sandcast restorer Vic World, the seat was reupholstered with an original Honda cover and foam. Normal maintenance was kept up to date. It was properly stored without fluids for the past six years and recently refreshed and restarted, which it did without fuss.
This looks like a nice example to consider if you’re in the market for a sandcast CB750 and if you’re looking for one, you probably already know all of the things to watch for and the questions to ask.
These original sandcast Hondas are a reminder of when “the bike that changed everything” was introduced. These are another of those motorcycles that will hold their value in the very least and most likely rise as the years go by. Check it out, it’s for sale on eBay.
