No Reserve: 1976 Honda CB750

This is from the site Bring a Trailer ( ...

This 1976 Honda CB750 was purchased by the seller five years ago and is powered by a 736cc SOHC four mated to a 5-speed transmission. Just over 19k miles are shown on the odometer, about 1,000 of which have been added by the seller. A new battery was recently installed, and the rear tire replaced three years ago. The seller reports a minor leak at the oil tank, and that the carburetors experience fuel starvation at higher speeds. This CB750 is now being offered at no reserve with two seats, a factory tool kit, service manual, and a clean California title in the seller’s name. The tank is finished in Candy Red, with fading noted on top. The 
chrome shows signs of pitting on the fuel cap and around the instruments. Corrosion is also noted on the frame near the kickstand mount. Suspension is by telescoping front forks with a rear swingarm, and a disc brake is fitted on the front wheel. The wire-spoke wheels wear Dunlop 19″ rubber up front and 18″ in the rear. The stock seat is included along with a period sport seat. The right side cover was lost, so a replacement was sourced and painted to match. Instrumentation consists of a tachometer and a Nippondenso 150-mph speedometer. The 5-digit odometer shows 19k miles. The air-cooled 736cc SOHC inline-four was rated at 68 horsepower when new and features four Keihin carburetors, as well as four individual exhaust pipes. A 5-speed transmission transfers power to the rear wheel via chain drive. The chain tensioner has been replaced with an aftermarket item but the stock tensioner will be included. A new battery has also been fitted, and the seller notes a minor oil leak at the oil tank connection to the supply hose. The carburetors also experience fuel starvation at highway speeds and might require cleaning or a rebuild. The factory tool roll is included along with a period service manual.
