1979 Honda CB 750K

Highlights

  • Meticulously restored to "like new" condition using NOS Honda components that are virtually impossible to find today
  • Complete mechanical overhaul carried out
  • Recent high quality paintwork applied in seven coats

The Appeal

Considered by many to be the first 'superbike', the Honda CB750 broke new ground in motorbike engineering and was one of the first motorbikes of its time to reach speeds of 200 km/h in front of the international press. It used a four-cylinder engine with twin overhead camshafts, which provided plenty of power and torque. Now at the top of virtually every classic Japanese motorbike collector's wish list, the CB750 is highly sought-after, and we are delighted to offer a superbly restored example.

The seller states that nearly 95% of the parts on this Honda have been replaced with new, ex-stock components. The paintwork is flawless and identical to the original, applied in no fewer than seven separate coats. The seller also mentions that several parts fitted during the restoration are now almost impossible to find, making this bike potentially unique in its condition. In addition, the bike is sold with a large stock of new parts. Similarly, the mechanical elements have been overhauled with new parts, including the instrumentation complete with speedo.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
€0 to €9,999 €100.00
€10,000 to €49,999 €250.00
€50,000 to €99,999 €500.00
€100,000 + €1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
