No Reserve: 1975 Honda CB750 K5

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1975 Honda CB750 K5 is a stock example with a 736cc inline-four, 5-speed manual transmission, front disc brake, and four individual exhaust pipes. Acquired by the selling dealer in 2017 as part of a large Arizona collection, the bike has since received a carburetor cleaning as well as parts and maintenance including new intake manifolds, hoses, fluids, and a new battery. Described as a turn-key example showing 19k indicated miles, this CB750 is sold with an Arizona title. The bike is said to retain original Planet Blue Metallic paint and decals throughout. Factory equipment includes an electric starter, flat two-place seat, dual mirrors, and turn signals. Brightwork and lighting are detailed in a number of close-up photos below along with occasional blemishes including a cracked side cover. Instrumentation includes a 150mph speedometer and a tach showing an 8000 rpm redline. The motorcycle reportedly had a single owner prior to the Arizona collector and its 5-digit odometer shows just over 19k miles, which is believed accurate by the seller. The 736cc transverse air-cooled SOHC four is equipped with four Keihin carburetors and four individual exhaust pipes. Peak output was a claimed 68 horsepower in 1975. The engine had not been started for a number of years prior the seller’s acquisition, but is now running thanks to a carburetor cleaning, replacement rubber intake manifolds and hoses, fresh fluids, and a new battery. Power is sent to the chain-driven rear wheel through a 5-speed manual transmission. Suspension is by telescoping fork and rear swingarm, while wire-spoked wheels wear 19″ rubber up front and 18″ in the rear. New old-stock parts were reportedly used by the previous owner for any required maintenance, though records are limited to those from the recent work performed by the seller’s shop.
