1982 Honda CB750 F2C, 748cc. Registration number JNH 71Y. Frame number RC04 4002941. Engine number RC01E 4103105.
The CB750 was the first motorcycle to be called a "superbike.," produced from 1969 by the late 1970's it was dated so they brought the F1 but two bikes conspired to kill the F1 early: the Kawasaki Z650 and the Suzuki GS750, both of which ripped it to pieces in both handling and speed departments. Both bikes appeared in late 1976, and Honda was caught on the hop. With a couple of years to go before its own DOHC bikes were ready, Honda frantically gave the F1 a major revision and called it the F2.
The F2 got double front discs, much improved suspension, bigger valves, higher compression and accelerator pump carbs to lift peak power to a claimed 75bhp. It was the most powerful SOHC CB750 ever – shame the extra weight rather cancelled out the extra power.
JNH had been owned for many years by our vendors husband until he passed away. He last had it MOT'd in 2016, even putting new tyres on it but his illness meant it was too heavy for him. It then remained in the garaged and was cleaned with regularity.
Sold with the V5C and a copy of its MOT history, the mileage is 59,344, just the ride back from the MOT station. It will need recommissioning before road use.
