Memorable Motorcycle: Honda CB750 F1 Photo Gallery
Melling would have no qualms about riding the Honda CB750 F1 "the length and breadth of America."
Our man Melling found a classic bike that would be perfect for those looking for their "first, old bike:" the Honda CB750 F1.
Swap out a few parts and the CB750 F1 has a distinctly modern feel.
The F1 was Honda's "sports" version of the 750 they previously produced.
The CB750 F1 will cruise the highway comfortably at 70 mph and offers a comfortable riding position.
Even newcomers can handle the at-home maintenance demanded by the CB750 F1.
The CB750 F1 comes equipped with Honda's iconic single overhead cam, five speed, four-cylinder engine.
The steel brake disks may work in sunny Southern California, but can be hazardous to those living in rain soaked Britain.
Wear your badge and wear it proud! The CB750 F1 is one our man Melling would put in his own garage.
One of the joys of an "old bike" is the simplicity of features, like the basic instrument panel of the CB750 F1.
Serious classic fans often want a "real" 750, helping to make the F1's relatively affordable.
Despite some minor changes to the chassis and engine, classic 750's and F1's are nearly identical in looks and performance.
The CB750 F1 started for Melling on the first try, every time.
The CB750 F1 will go a long way in making you want to ride more classic bikes, rather than scaring you off forever.
The test bike shown here is for sale, fully restored at $6,000.
