Chad Bennett Sr’s ’74 CB750K

Chad Bennett Sr’s Story

Hi, my name is Chad Bennett Sr. This is my 1974 Honda CB750. It took me awhile to get her where she is today.

I stripped it down to the frame, had it bead blasted and painted black with metal flake. From there, I pretty much had everything chromed, or polished. I did most of the polishing myself, nearly losing an eye, finger, and big screen TV in the process…. I changed a few things: Turn signals, tail light, hand grips, mirrors, rear foot pegs, horn, chain guard, and custom paint. I chopped the front fender, added a fork brace, chrome air filters, oil pressure gauge, headlight visor, chrome engine guards, chrome Honda highway pegs, painted the front rotor and rear sprocket cover, new engine gaskets, had the rear hub re-laced to a 16” Harley wheel, new spokes for the front wheel, ditched the Phillips screws for a set of Allen heads, and swapped the points for a Dyna ignition with Dyna coils.

That’s it in a nutshell…. It took me about four years of working off and on. I’d get burnt out, and have to take a break for a month or two. The only major help I had was removing and installing the engine. Those things are heavy… Final assembly was done in my living room.

Thanks,

Chad
