A right of passage in this game is to have a Honda In Line 4. I had the 1979 CB750K Limited. (10th Anniversary special). Top heavy bike that was indestructible. Love the kicker.

The 750's are still one of my favorite really classic motorcycles that ever was. I had two of them.

I remember those XL's. Our Hare Scramble team raced a couple of them before the XR came out. We drove White Brothers nutz coming up with things to make them better.

That's a nice ride. IIRC, those didn't even come with oil filters :)

They did come with oil filters, but they're enough to piss of the Pope. You have to remove the kicker, possibly the compression release (can't recall for sure) and then the clutch cover. The filter is a small square, about 1.5" x 1.5", and it's mounted horizontally under the clutch. With the cover off, it's an excellent time to adjust the counter-balance device.

Used to love the CB500/4 – nothing quite like it for lazy cruising style – the subsequent CB550/4 was the poorer cousin for most of us

But those 750/4’s have stood the test of time – indestructible engines

I had the misfortune to ride the 400/4 for a while – slow and heavy, the power only came in at 6500 rpm – red-lined at 9000 – useless – under the power band they used to go like a 250 ……..
