The early CB750s are highly desirable with collectors and vintage motorcycle enthusiasts, they had engines that had been made using permanent mold casting (due to Honda’s uncertainly about the orders that the bike would receive), this means that they aren’t always as well-made as the later model years. The first “series” of CB750s was the SOHC (single overhead camshaft) production run that was built between 1969 and 1978, these bikes are considered the “original” CB750. Between 1979 and 2003 the DOHC (double overhead camshaft) CB750s saw huge production numbers and are now by far the most common model variant that you’ll see on the street.
It is no exaggeration to say the Honda CB750 is the most significant motorcycle ever made and altered the world of motorcycling forever. Prior to the CB750 you had two choices in motorcycles: You could have a small, reliable Japanese bike or you could have a larger, faster but unreliable bike.
