Default New Bike

Here is a short walk around of my new to me 1973 Honda CB750 K3.
I'd like to blame this on Sam Green but I am a "person easily open to suggestion".
Enjoy, I know I'm gonna...

"but I am a "person easily open to suggestion".

My 1st suggestion is to send the bike to me!

If that doesn't work then..being the bike is so pretty, keep it as is. IMO

Score! This is the one bike every man should own once in his life. I recommend keeping it and riding the crap out of it. I used to ride my dads around the neighborhood when I could only touch the ground with one foot. I've had buddies buy original flawless K models and one rode one to Laguna Seca a couple years in a row at high speed annoying MultiStrada Ducatis and BMW's that couldn't believe that ol bike was keeping up with them. When they pulled over at the gas station they were shocked it was a completely original pristine K750 with under 5,000 miles haha. Those thins can move. The engine feels so tight and they rev very high comfortably. Not a bad investment. Nice Christmas present to yourself.

Wow ... candy orange, too. Looks and sounds perfect. I could hear my Triumph groaning in the garage - the 750 was really the final nail in the coffin for the British in those days.

What a classic, thanks for sharing the video.

I occurred to me I usually wind up riding bikes I'm working on to sell, or customer's bikes. I thought I'd like a non project to promote Kaizen Vintage Moto.
It should be more suitable than the smaller twins and has a broader mission too.
I look forward to sharing more about the bike...
I'll keep you in mind Chip for when I get that suggestive....

It's all Sam's fault anyway.... stupid drag racing thingy. While this 750 is nice and complete and done I now find myself looking for a 750 project to make a drag bike.... I'm never satisfied in that way. Maybe Sam will ship a Benly over for April in Valdosta....
