    Have owned 6 by 750 Honda SOHC motorcycles.
    Used to buy them for sweet fannys . 
    $ not much.
    But even after owning 4  kawasaki 900's, but I kinda loved the old stable platforms, of the Honda Fours.. S'pose just electric after vibrofrom big twins...
    Sorry no photo's as my business. 
    They were a lovely ride.stable platform, still did 120 MPH worked.

    It's been on there a while Pauly. 69 grand is a high price, reminds me of something Col (from MDB) said.
    Wonder how the seller chose that price?, I guess it was made in 69 so that'd be a starting point.
    Do not think the present time is an ideal time to be selling a bike for optimistic dollars.
    Still, I wouldn't mind it in the shed if I was chronically wealthy.
    Its interesting as this is a piece of history that you cant simply get the next one that comes along. I was a bit alarmed to see the motor out of it, for that sort of money i would want a total std non tampered bike

    " for that sort of money i would want a total std non tampered bike"
    So would I, standard non tampered with examples are pretty hard to find though.
    51 years is a long time for a bike to survive without something happening to it.

    My first bike was a 400/4. Great little bike, sold it six months later for a 750/4. Had that for 2 years and loved it, sadly wrote it off while heading to the bike shop to trade it in on a GPZ1100. All the paper work was signed and the dealer still stuck to the deal, they picked myself and the bike up and I rode home on the GPZ.

    Good for you Daffy. The sohc4 forum that is a U.S one is a wealth of information regarding all the old 4 cylinder Honda's if you get stuck with anything or need a hard to find part.

    When you look at buying a classic bike, you’re looking for something untouched. What this shows is that keeping your Harley stock, or at least keeping all the stock parts, adds heaps of value when you come to sell.

    100 marks to you. The bike that has delivery miles and totally stock std with matching everything is what true collectors want and can afford.

    Bring back the past...
    Thinking going to swap out my Bagger for an FXDF, let alone a Fonda Hoare, which could not afford one these days.

    Thanks mate. Really enjoying this bike. Getting a bit carried away. Currently getting stuff chromed to the tune of $700. Might just be a money pit but so what. Even my wife's on board with it. Still love my Deluxe though.
