Customer Build - Joe's 1972 Honda CB750 K2 / by Nicholas Acosta

I met Joe while on a ride with the Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Group up in Picton, Ontario. I immediately noticed his motorcycle as it was the only Honda CB750 that I’ve seen all week, and in such amazing condition. He was looking for someone who can work on his engine since it needed a tune up, so one of my peers suggested he approach me for the job. The cylinder head was weeping oil, a clear sign that oil was passing through the rubber pucks hidden underneath the camshaft, and to top it off he was no longer getting any compression in one of his cylinders. After tearing the whole top end apart, the pistons were placed in the ultrasonic cleaner, new rings were installed, gaskets, and the rest of the head was rebuilt. It’s really a pleasure to see how well maintained his motorcycle is, as there’s too many examples of abused and chopped up classic Japanese motorcycles out there, and having the chance to ride his motorcycle was an absolute pleasure
