EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: For my money, there’s no more historically important bike in modern history than the CB750. When it first hit the market in 1969, it sent shockwaves through the motorcycle industry with a combination of comfort, performance, reliability and straight-out civility that had never been seen before. Between 1969 and 1978, Honda sold a staggering 500,000 of them, virtually taking control of the big-bike market until other Japanese manufacturers fell into line (pardon the pun) by releasing their own in-line big-bore four-cylinder four-stroke road bikes. The CB changed very little through the 1970s. At the time, the Honda started to go stale while other offerings, especially Kawasaki’s Z1 900, stole the limelight. But now, 40-odd years on, it means the first six or seven years of the CB750 all share the same lines and design as the original K0. This bike of Paul’s looks like a wonderful example.
