I have seen this pic of the cb750 with the hottie in bikini many times. Hard to forget that beautiful body… and the girl looks alright as well. Found out this bike was recently on ebay and was sold by kgcycles. Went to their website and they have some sweet looking bikes. This cb750 is one of the best I have seen. Would love to know how much it went for, if anyone knows can they let me know?
Apparently the CB750 was the first modern four cylinder machine from a mainstream manufacturer, the term Superbike was created to describe the CB750. Imagine that, the cb750 is the original superbike. Respect.
In the late ’80’s, Honda experimented with a number of very unusual motorcycles. The GB500 was one of them. It took its style from the old cafe racers – which is why i like it so much. One of the best things to come out of the 80’s in my humble opinion (and of course hyper colored tshirts).
The GB500 was a moderate success in Japan, but in the US sales were hindered by the American love for large engines and dislike of the fairly high price tag. Which is why it’s relatively rare bike and has a bit of a cult status.
Here’s a couple of pics of this 80’s classic. The first pic is from an old honda advertisement… Love the birds forming the honda logo.
