I got an e-mail from our user submits but the e-mail address was lost in the shuffle of chive e-mails (we get a few per day). It seems to be a tuned CB750 but I’m not sure. Anyone have the answer?

Its a honda Cafa Racer. looks like the motor is a 1100. older then mid 80's cause its chain driven.
#24 Sexy shot.
Its a 1977/78 CB750KZ. My old man had one, and I did my drivers assessment on it. The kickstart is a giveaway.
I believe that style of modification is a bobcat / bobba(er)
I believe Alex doesn't know much about motorcycles
My first street bike in 1980 was 1977 CB750f that was built from a bike my friend Pogey hit a curb with at 55 mph. It was a SOHC four like this but closer to stock. The barrels are too small to be a 750, my guess would be a 350-500 four. It is definitely not a litre bike, the barrels on those had much shallower cooling fins in the side. The SOHC engine was never made from the factory in displacements lager than 750cc. Also the alternator housing cast on the left side of the engine was far more pronounced on the smaller fours because the crankcase was wider in the larger displacement engines. It looks like a racer but would not pass tech because there is no safety wire anywhere on this bike.
I dig the bike, but the mirror looks kinda goofy.
how come? i actually like the way the mirror looked.
It is certainly an early to mid '70's Honda 750/4. It looks to me like a modified Rickman Honda cafe racer kit. Very similar tank and tail/seat. Rear lights look different.
Pretty section of content. I just stumbled upon your website and in accession capital to assert that I get actually enjoyed account your blog posts. Anyway I will be subscribing to your augment and even I achievement you access consistently fast.|
I'm going with 78 CB750K8. Definitely not an F cause of the single disc brake. Rickman rear cowl and custom molded gas tank and custom oil tank. Those carbs cost a pretty penny as well.
The lettering on the frame says "Johnny Lightening 500" so my guess is that's a 70's CB500 four cylinder that's been heavily modified to get that cafe look
