    Here is my 1975 Honda CB 750 Super Sport. First year of the CB750 Super Sport and Genesis to the modern day CBR's. Changed the bars to Euro style and love it. Way better handling. Factory Metallic Orange Paint. Sat for 6 years and changed the clutch, Oil, cleaned the rusty tank, clean the carbs, brakes and new battery and it's back on the road. It came with period correct Shoei hard plastic Pannier and left them on, great place to put stuff.

    That is a sharp 750SS, love the orange! The GT grips are the way to go too, I use them on my CB550 & CB400f.

    Here's my families group last year, the '72 cb100 has been sold and a '70 cl350 is in its place. I can't get enough of the old '70's Hondas :-)

    Here is my 1971 750K1, it's sort of a Mad Max rat/café rideable project bike if that makes any sense. It looks kind of wild but it is built to be a reliable ride. It has new wiring harness, tires, alloy rims, battery, forks and brakes redone, electronic ignition, cables, carbs cleaned and new floats, etc. Also has Koni shocks, Tarozzi rearsets, Giuliari seat. I've put almost 1000 miles on it the past few months. It's a fun bike.

    Honda had CB's and Super Sports as far back as 1959. The first "Super Sport" was actually the CB92 Benly Super Sport.
    Here's a pic of my '61 CB92 Super Sport. Currently undergoing complete restoration.

    I have no affiliation with this seller. He popped up on my craigslist search for something else. Looks like a bunch of older Hondas for sale in Eldridge, IA. http://quadcities.craigslist.org/mcy/5440291205.html

    If this is a no no let me know and I'll delete the post. I deliberately didn't put it in the Flea Market for this very reason. There may be someone in this thread that sees something they need. Personally I'd love the CBX, but no lettuce....

    Wow good job out there, some really nice Hondas out there!! 400F's yum. Here's one I had a bunch of decades ago, me and a buddy rebuilt it and I rode the shit out of it.
    But isn't that what mx'ers are for?

    Nice early Trail 90!
    Here's my '77. I got it from the original owner. I have all the paperwork that came with
    it from the dealer too.
    I added the front rack, crash bars, LED driving lights and the home made saddlebag rig.
    (a pair of laptop computer bags in a aluminum rack.)
    Here's the world's only full dress touring Trail 90. LOL!!
    Ridden regularly. Love it. Not for sale at any price.

    Nice. I miss my '77 some days. Though I technically still do have (the one in the background) a "CB400F" as per Honda's model designation. No cam chain to worry about. :thumb

    Love it! That is one of the most beautiful bikes Honda ever made.
    Too bad they only made 'em for a few years.
