In 1969 the Honda Motor Company launched a motorcycle that many consider being the world's first Superbike. The Honda CB750 had the first mass-produced 4-cylinder inline engine, a single overhead camshaft with four carburetors, a 4-into-4 exhaust system, and an electric start and front disc brakes as standard. This specification set the bar higher than had been seen before on a production motorcycle and led to the other Japanese motorcycle manufacturers introducing their own 4-cylinder motorcycles, albeit sometime later.
Following the success of the original CB750, Honda went on to produce a range of motorcycles using SOHC 4-cylinder engines. They proved reliable and smooth-running with their own characteristics, and even today, they can offer reliable transport on modern roads if restored correctly. Now with some examples more than 40 years old, many enthusiasts wish to restore these classic machines.
