This Honda CB750 is one of 165 motorcycles to go under the hammer at the H&H Classics auction held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham on 9 November – which is ironic, according to sale organiser Mark Bryan. “The reason this machine is such a fantastic investment is because the Honda CB750 helped change the face of motorcycling when launched and ended up being one of the final nails in the coffin of the British motorcycle industry!”
The 1969 Honda CB750 “sandcast” is an early model, frame number 645, and is one of only 7414 produced that year.
Japanese machines from 1960s/1970s have been steadily climbing in value over the past five or so years. A rare pre-production CB750 was sold by H&H Classics this year for £157,500.
