This 1977 Honda CB750 K7 was modified in the style of a cafe racer under previous ownership and shown in California through the early 2000s before its acquisition by the seller two years ago. The bike is powered by a 736cc SOHC inline-four mated to a five-speed transmission and finished with a handmade metallic yellow fuel tank, a black frame, and polished accents. Additional modifications include clubman-style handlebars, a custom bump seat and oil tank, relocated electrics, a four-into-one exhaust system, and cone air filters. This CB750 is offered at no reserve with a clean California title in the seller’s name.

The hand-formed fuel tank features knee cut-outs and is finished in metallic yellow, while the polished seat cowl was reportedly built from the body of a 1950s vacuum cleaner and houses a hand-blown glass taillight. The spherical oil tank is said to have been cut down from a repurposed industrial cylinder.

The 736cc SOHC incline-four is fitted with cone air filters in place of the stock airbox, with the four individual Keihin carburetors said to have been re-jetted to match. The four-into-one exhaust system exists from a single shorty muffler. Carburetor tuning and a valve adjustment are said to have been carried out in the past month along with installation of a new stator, regulator/rectifier, and lithium ion battery.

The engine was overhauled approximately 15k miles ago according to the previous owner, though supporting records are unavailable. Power is sent to the rear wheel via a five-speed transmission and a drive chain.
