On eBay. Bulla the shite description. Other than being a very desirable bike it certainly is not "unrestored" and missing so much. The seller needs to supply more photographs and expand the description. Need to know the engine number

Okay - I found the link.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Honda-CB/222793535549?hash=item33df87903d:g:PvkAAOSwuShaWP9D&vxp=mtr

Photo of the frame number sure would be nice.  A close look at the engine number looks like 7xxx something. 

Can't believe the bid is up to $36K without photos of the frame and engine numbers.

Except for the exhausts, the "28" tops, the airbox and the side emblems, it seems to me complete...

Hard to tell if it has a 19 liter tank, unless we see the bottom side. I would also love to see the right hand controls to see the pointerless kill switch. Lots of parts not correct for an "unrestored" bike. Great to see the engine Vin.

the tach drive box is diecast.  the #1 exhaust is stamped HM300, has rot on the end, the #4 exhaust has relief for the brake pedal.  chain guard is long.  the exhaust clamps are not the early "fat" type. the master cylinder cap is not machined, much less the correct cast type.  both instrument cables are the early short nut type.  i am going with the tank being a 19 liter because of the narrow distance between the fuel tap lever and bottom edge of tank, appears same distance as my 232.  judging by the damaged LH headlight ear, cracked headlight bucket, and other replaced incorrect partst, i would suggest the bike's been damaged, probably in some sort of accident or something fell on it.  none the less, a lovely appropriately matching low 2 digit vin.  gotta love that grey body horn.  i quit bidding at $36.2K....... Shocked  i would be surprised if it sells for less than $45k, probably $50k+  vins like 31/E66 do not grow on trees and there certainly are discriminating wealthy collectors patiently waiting in the background for a vin like this one.  it seems the lowest vin i have ever seen for sale on ebay about 10 years ago was something like vin 122.....?  KP, do you remember that auction?  Gerard, i asked the seller for the Evin and any other pics, nary a word and now my feelings are hurt.  Cry

I also think that the tank is a 19 liters ...
Steve, I did not ask the seller Ebay because I already had these pictures for about 3 years in my computer ... They had been posted here ...

auction ended.  we'll see if it reappears, doubtful.  i am guessing seller was made an offer he could not refuse, as well as avoid paying ebay fees.

EDIT: In response to inquiries and new information not preciously known to me. I have answered all as completely as I could. This is my first time selling a motorcycle of this age and vintage and I have a lot to learn. I appreciate the kind encouragement and guidance from the sellers and bidders who have been so interested to learn more about this bike. PLEASE READ BEFORE BIDDING THESE EDITS ARE CORRECTIONS OR ADDITIONS TO THE ORIGINAL INFORMATION.

*Re: More Photos or better Quality - As per request I have added 12  new photos showing the condition of the pipes, areas of paint damage, Engine stamp, VIN Stamp, Fuel Tank, Front Sprocket (counter-shaft) and chain where it enters the engine. They show all her blemishes, including ones I previously was not aware of.

*Re: History and Condition - The VIN Number is CB7501000031- it is stamped into the frame. The Engine Number is 66, Frame number is 31. Based on research from Sandcastonlydotcom I speculate that the bike was built before  7/22/1969 (E71) and assembled and shipped to the USA for sale by November of 1969. No documents of the original sale exist. The bike was acquired in 1973 by the dealership after the owner brought it in for repairs. The owner of the bike chose to trade it in instead of having it repaired. It spent from the summer 1973 to the spring of 1997 in our dealership warehouse when it was moved to the show room floor. It has been there ever since. The bike has 4271 original miles on it.

The bike has had some repairs done to it - the Front fender was replaced and also the airbox cover with 1969/1970 CB750f Parts. At some point the alternator cover began leaking oil and JB weld was used to seal the leak. There are numerous scratches and the paint has suffered fading and chipping, especially in areas near joints such as the threads and welds where the mirrors and signal lights attach. The glass of both gauges have cracks. The fuel tank was stored empty but some rust has accumulated but the integrity of the tank is good.


*Re: Fuel Tank - Could not determine true volume but presumably 19L or 5.0 US Gallons as specified by online sources. The Tank lacks the throttle cable impressions that were added in later CB750 models.

As before the winner of the auction is responsible for transport and delivery, It is not possible for us to ship this bike.

Thank you for all your paitence and interest.
