    Why let the Duck and Triumph boys have retro fun? I've always liked the CB series, especially the CBX.

    am I the only one who likes that style of bike more than a typical harley clone? I just wish they'd bring one out in the 250-450cc engine size

    I hope it hits the US market, they (Japanese) already make a lot of "retro" bikes that are not imported

    I hate to point out the obvious but thats an old one with a DOHC 4 motor in it. Look at the brakes. Whatever that is, its not the new CB750.

    Agreed. that is the only image I could find newer than the Original.

    For a 2009 40th anniversary , I suspect Honda will really keep a tight lid on it. I just hope it does not have spoked wheels. Tubeless
    radials have spoiled me. Good Luck and Ride Safe:thumbsup:

    I would love to have an old style bike like that again! My 2nd bike was a KZ440LTD and it was a blast to ride!

    I had put lower bars on it and was going to make it into a cafe racer, but then I sold it. I still wish I had that bike!

    A retro CB750 would be hella cool. I had to sell my '74 a few years ago when I moved to a place without a garage. I miss that bike:

    I owned a 1978 CB 750. the last version of the sohc motor CB. It was overweight and slow.
    I also owned a CB 400F. It was a rev puppy, fun to ride.
    Ditto a 1995 CB1000. the big one. It was a retro bike, and a sales flop, too soft a motor, but very nicely made.
    Hope the retro CB 750 has better brakes, and they lighten up the throttle return springs.

    Im struggling right now with the decision to get rid of my first bike.

    Its a 1980 KZ1000 that I bought this August and put 6K miles on in just a few short months, Ive been everywhere on that bike. Last week I bought a 2001 Yamaha VStar Classic. I still got the KZ out a few times and rode it, complete different bike.......and being my first I really would like to keep it.

    However the money could be handy and I could have sold it half a dozen times for what I have in it.....what to do.

    I think I will atleast hold on to it until Spring comes around again....
