1972 HONDA CB750 BRAT/Tracker

$20,000 Documented Build, Runs and Rides Extremely Well, Less than 900 Miles on Restoration

 

This CB750 was designed by a photographer and sculptor based out of Chicago and NY and hand built over the course of 18 months by vintage four-cylinder Honda expert Dinosaur Four. The bike was stripped down to the frame and built from the ground up with many custom fabricated details, countless documented hours and thousands of dollars in parts.

The bike runs beautifully, starts easily and has tons of power. Carbs are nicely synced and it runs like a top. It was finished at the end of 2013 and has been ridden sparingly since then. It has less than 900 miles on it since the rebuild was completed. It's either been in storage at motorcycle garages on a battery tender, or during the season, in a climate controlled garage when not being used. It's just had a full tune-up and detailing.

Below is a list of some of the parts and restoration work. The bike was purchased for $2,000, and there is at least $10,000 in labor and another $8,000 in newly-purchased parts on this bike, according to the builder. Receipts for restoration come with bike.
