FS: 1972 CB750 K2
 
I think I'm going to sell the bike. Anyone interested in it? It runs great but it's no fun to ride here at the beach and it just sits in the garage. It has less than 5k total miles. Asking $5,500. It would ship pretty much anywhere for $500 FWIW, that's how I got it to me. It's been dropped once, the very first time I got it started I took it out to see how it ran (on 40 year old tires). Came up to a stop sign, tried to turn left, tires wouldn't lean at all and I had to either lay it down or ride into a ditch. Other than that it's never been in an accident.

It rides great and is a looker.

It doesn't need anything, but what I would recommend doing to it is:
- A lower triple tree with adjustable bump stops to keep the clip-ons from hitting the tank (or a new upper triple and clubman bar setup)
- Front fender if that's your thing. It looks awesome without it but don't try riding it in the rain like that
- The original tins are in "ok" shape, I'd call them a 7/10. The problem is they can't be refinished easily because the original color codes have been lost. The only way to get this color back is to buy a new set from yamiya, which is $$$. About $1k.

I know this is an old thread, but if I could still ride a bike I'd be all over this. When I lived in Japan I bought a new 1971 Honda 750 in that exact color. IIRC the original fenders were chrome. Was also wondering about the new throttle body listed, because they have 4 Keihen carburetors.
Really sweet looking bike and brings back some great memories.
