Description 1981 Honda CB750 Custom Exclusive Cruiser Cafe Racer

1981 Honda CB750 Custom Exclusive

For sale is my CB750C with the low starting bid of £750. This is a 1981 Custom Exclusive model that is a Special Edition made only for the Japanese Market (it has the Red Light on the speedo – showing 29,387 miles) and all Japanese writing on the warning stickers still on the bike.) I am currently reluctantly selling only as I have decided to change direction on my next CB project. 

Unfortunately the bike is not currently starting, so new owner is buying with this in mind. Refer to "Cons" section below for more detail.

Pros: Full engine rebuild performed by the previous owner. It has done only approx. 400 miles since then (at some point the engine will need a post-rebuild torque-up in the appropriate places)
MOT until June 2017 (only advisories were to tighten chain and adjust a number plate bolt). 
Recent swap of the carbs to a later 82 CB750F set that has been cleaned and re-jetted.
All bottom end gaskets have been replaced and fresh oil change with less than 20 miles on it.
Extensive file provided with the bike that contains receipts including a full engine rebuild by Tim Blakemore Racing (December 2014), new seat, powder coated frame and wheels, new swinging arm bearings, new fork seals, new ignition switch, new tacho cable and clutch cable, new exhaust downpipes, new brake cylinders front and rear, new battery, CB750F bars, two new tyres, mechanical kmh/mph converter on the speedo. Previous MoT's document it mileage back to 2007 when it was 23,999.
All lights, tacho, horn etc working.
The bike also comes with a massive selection of spares (3 boxes full – hundreds of pounds worth alone) from its prior re-build that includes: A full set of carbs
Original Mirrors
New Full Gasket Kit (bottom and top end already fitted)
Two Gauges and Spare Rear Light/Housing
Spare key barrel 
Brake and Choke cables
Spare Crank, Timing Chain and Rods
Rear Sprocket
Brake Cylinder Rebuild Kit
Various emblems
Various engine casings including head and sides
Various Gaskets
Gas Cap
Spark Plug Leads
Brake Lines
Helmet Locks
The List Goes on…. Cons: The bike is not currently starting which may be due to a leak in the head gasket. I have temporarily plugged this but there is still some oil leaking around the main seal. I have included a brand new gasket kit (as mentioned above) with the sale so this is ready to be repaired – cheap fix for a running bike.
The bike still needs to be tuned and balanced since the carb swap - may also be contributing to the lack of starting.
The paintwork is tired, there are scratches, the exhausts on one side are different to the other and the chrome is imperfect. The side panel mount is broken on one side but the side panels themselves are sound if in need of fresh paint in my opinion.
Tax expires beginning of December so the bike is priced to sell before then.

This really is an excellent base for a concourse restoration or café racer project; it is a LOT of bike for the low starting price, despite the starting issues. Inspections are welcome in Highbury, North London on weekday evenings – ebay message me to arrange. Cash or bank transfer on pick-up (no postage).

Bike will need to be trailered or transported as not running – buyer to organise any transport related logistics.

Thanks for looking.
