1974 Honda CB750

Calcified Carbs

Classic Velocity

It seems like every CB 4 cylinder automatically needs the carbs cleaned. This one was passing a pretty weak stream of fuel from 2 of the 4 carbs. Off came the rack of carbs, and the bowl of 3 of them had a white film of calcified....something. Thorough cleaning, new gaskets and a few o-rings were the cure. This is inexpensive but time-consuming work. Back on the bike, it now fires and runs strong...

A Proper Big Bike

Classic Velocity

Perhaps it was a childhood impression, perhaps it was the feeling of solid weighty metal after many tiny machines, perhaps it was the 1970s. Whatever the cause, the CB750 just looks like a proper standard almost as clasically as the Norton does. Despite an earlier basket case project, this one had appeal right away. Decent shape, not bad on the mileage, all parts present. A good candidate for a rolling restoration once I could get it running.
