Hello guys so I purchased my first motorcycle the other day and this bike has me a little confused. I was told its a 1979 honda cb750 motor which made sense until i started reading that mostly only sohc motors had kick starts, and that sohc was ended in 1978 and the 1979 was dohc without a kickstart.

So I wanted to ask if anyone knows from pictures what I have here?

Thanks for the advice in advance!

Its 70 to 78. Only way to tell is with the serial number on the top case by the starter cover. sohc last year was 78 and only the sohc had kickstart. Looks like a pretty clean build though.

Thanks for the help man. I looked for it says cb750E-25xxxx cant read the remaining numbers so im guessing its a 75 or 76 f motor

By the way I'm digging yours it looks great

Thank you, there should be a thread about the build on here somewhere, its been a long time since I built it.

yes looks like yours is a 75 or 76, hard telling whats been done to it though over the years.

I'll find it and check it out. Yeah I was just confused because all my title says is 1979 assembled. Thanks again for the info buddy
