It's not a BAD bike as there's no such thing as a bad CB750. It's just somewhat over-done and flashy for my taste. It looks like it was built more for showing off than to run the twisties. If that's what the builder ,customer wanted then more power to them. It's just not my cup of tea.

I prefer the rode hard and put away wet look of old race bikes.
I have a couple of old books with pics of many old factory racers and they look ROUGH to say the least,but that's how they were built.

They were built to be the fastest,best handling bikes of their time and looking pretty wasn't even a consideration. That's what gives them their "CHARACTER".

Nothing wrong with a CLEAN bike,but clean doesn't have to be flashy.

no offense, but this is the ugliest bike i have ever seen. ever. i live in the bay area and consistently see "cafe racer" bikes on craigslist that are bone stock with the exception of 17 dollar clubmans, and a couple of shitty aftermarket chrome parts. also, that seat looks like a giant turd. no offense. -nathan

We have the same guys here in LA. If I never see another set of clubmans on a big crappy 70s jap bike it will be too soon.
