Kawasaki ZRX 1200R

Restored 1975 Honda CB750K

I picked up a forgotten Honda a few months ago and spent some time and money getting it back to something respectable.
The last year it was tagged was 1986 but it has been ridden more recently. The dry rotted rear tire was manufactured in '93 and was half worn out. So maybe 20+ years since it was ridden.
I had a lot of fun building it and couldn't be happier with the end result.
For now, the dent in the tank stays, but I'm working on a deal that may yield a better paint set to swap out.

Looks good. Reminds me of my Dad. Through the 70's and early 80's he had a motorcycle shop (Freedom Motorcycles) Mainly was a Honda and Kawaski guy. I would sit on the bikes for hours and pretend I was riding them. The drag bikes he had were my favorites. I want to rebuild a KZ1000 and modernize it.

Got to say the 750 Honda was the king of the 70's. Reliable and fast.
If you don't have time to do it right, when do you have time to do it over?

I had a 73 with the orange tank. It was my first. I might have a few things still left over from it.

Nice work on the bike. I love these older CB SOHC bikes. My dad had/ still has a '72 500cc and got photos like that one above too. Bike still cranks after years sitting in garage.

Also I just saw this ad on CL. Someone needs to go save this bike from the scavengers. It looks like it's all there! These things are tanks I'd be surprised if cannot get it running again and looking great without too much effort.
Experience is not something you get until just after you needed it.
