This 1971 Honda CB750 K1 was purchased by the seller three years ago as a running project and was recently refurbished by American V-Twin in Providence, Rhode Island. Work included fresh paint on the frame and bodywork, as well as re-plated or replaced chrome accessories. The 750cc inline-four is paired with a 5-speed transmission and was cosmetically detailed before re-installation. The seller has added 750 miles since the refresh and reportedly tested and tuned the bike to factory specifications. This CB750 is now being offered with a clean Rhode Island title in the seller’s name. Finished in the correct shade of Candy Blue-Green, the bodywork was recently repainted followed by the application of fresh decals and emblems. Chrome was either replaced or re-chromed as necessary, and the seat is believed to wear the original foam and cover. The forks legs, seals, and boots have been replaced, and the brakes were rebuilt with new pads and shoes. New factory wheels wear fresh Dunlop tires and tubes. The gauges were refinished by Marcel den Butter of 750faces.com with the odometer left untouched to reflect the actual mileage. 17,341 miles are currently indicated and believed to be accurate. The handle bars were replaced and a new brake master cylinder installed. The gauges, switchgear, and controls are reported to function as intended. Power comes from a SOHC 750cc four paired with a 5-speed transmission. The engine did not reportedly require a rebuild, so its components were cleaned and the cases refinished before being reinstalled into the frame. The exhaust system is reported to be free of corrosion and provides a mellow tone. Little is known of the early history, but records are available from the work performed from 2015-2018. Recent work included an oil change and brake service. The under-seat area shows the condition of the seat pan. No tool kit is provided, but a new battery was recently installed.
