Almost 50 years ago, in 1969, an earthquake shook the world of motorcycles.
Honda released a revolutionary machine on the world market for the time: the CB 750.
This will be the beginning of the revival of the bike.
Discovered at the Tokyo Salon 1968, it arrived in 1969 on the American and European markets.
1969 is the first flight of the Concorde and the first steps of a man on the moon. “A small step for the man, but a giant step for the humanity”. Indeed, with the commercialization of the Honda CB 750, a giant step has been taken.
There will be a before and after CB 750.
The arrival of this machine revolutionizes the motorcycle industry, and is undeniably the starting point of a new era for this type of motorized machine.
With its 750 cc four-cylinder engine, four carburetors, electric starter, front disc brake, and superb line of four chrome exhausts, the Honda fuels lust.
Of historic importance, the CB 750 K0 has achieved a worldwide success which raises it to the rank of legend.
The CB 750 Four engine will be declined for nearly ten years in different versions and evolutions.
But, for all fans, the true CB 750 is the 1969 K0 model, known as “Sandcast”: the first model and therefore the most sought after and the most coveted.
in 1969, the CB 750 K0 will have 50 years. This anniversary will be celebrated as it should be during the CBC on the Paul Ricard circuit in May 2019.
The Honda CB 750 that we present are part of the personal collection of our collaborator Hubert Rigal, former Honda factory pilot.
The set consists of two 1969 750 K0 Sandcast (Candy Gold and Candy Green), and a 1970 (Candy Red) 750 K0 Diecast (injection molded crankcase).
They are in three original colors, complete and in excellent mechanical condition.
After 50 years, they have of course been restored by specialists.
All three are equipped with four-wire carburetors.
It is rare to have the original colors of the same model (the CB 750 K0 were only produced with these three colors).
These bikes are offered as a lot which makes them interesting for a passionate collector.
Available in Paris, France, they have French circulation documents.
