A revolution on wheels, one could denote the CB 750 from 1968. Thereafter, the motorcycle world was no longer the same. Four-cylinder, overhead camshaft, five gears, front disc brake, that were rather attributes of racing machines previously than in large-scale production. The electric starter was added. In USA one also have celebrated the incredible price of nearly 1,500 dollars, whereby the first series has been sold out there.
No one knew at the time that it would go even further with the changes in this way, motorcycles would be offered down to 350 cc as four-cylinder and even transversely-mounted in-line six-cylinder engines. The originally from a Honda race car derived engine was then also the highlight. Quite the beginning nor made in sand casting process, the chill casting was more suitable for the production of 350-400 engines per working day.
The engine was rumoured to have mileages from 100,000 to 150,000 km, hard to believe for motorcyclists of that time. Only the drive chain rearwards tore sometimes at the chain lock and knocked a hole in the engine block. In contrast to the engine, the chassis and the accuracy of processing leave something to be desired. Here became unpleasantly noticeable inadequate maintenance e.g. of the metal bushings used initially. 10/15
