That's what headers without the tampon were for.

I had the 750 F (a 79). Loved that bike!

Vetter fairing and bags with a trunk! now it would look pathetic, but back then it was the sh*T!

My first tear down was that bike - man did I screw that up. But what a learning experience.

Glenn Turple's (Turple Honda in Red Deer, Alberta) '69 CB750

Over 100,000 miles, negligible wear internally to the engine. He actually added another odo to prove it was +100K. Speaks to the longevity of these bikes if properly taken care of.

I had four CB750 and like everything about them but the seat it was not comfortable and pretty ugly like most seats back then. I put a king/queen seat on all but one made the bikes look so much better. They were dependable and ran pretty good for a 750 not as fast as the V-45 those were fast good bikes.

In 1972,, I purchased one New.... at 500 miles I added the 850cc kit... Honda works camshaft and rocker arms.
Jardine headers/mini-mufflers ( 4 into 2 )... upgraded the drive chain to 650... changed sprockets.
transistor type pointless system.


Blacked out the cylinders.. polished the engine cases.
10 inch over "Franks" front forks... dropped the rear 2 1/2 inches.

from 1990 to 2004.. I restored 11 early 1970's CB750's.
