Dave Dasen’s ’75 CB750F

Dave Dasen’s Story

Hello,

Here is my 1975 CB750F

This was my ex father-in-law’s motorcycle. He passed away in 1992, and she sat uncovered in the loft of a horse barn for 10 years.

Since I got it I have been working on it one part at a time, Every riding season I have been replacing what I consider to be the two or three “worst” parts. Everything is either OEM or new old stock (except for the handgrips and maybe the crash bar and the sissy bar mount that is visible in the pic). And I’ve been asked many times, the 4-1 header and muffler is stock - these were on the 1975-76 Supersports only. Paint is next, and I already have the reproduction decals and the “recipe” to recreate the Flake Sunrise Orange using modern basecoat/clearcoat.

I live in Ohio, and I’ve ridden as far as North Carolina and up to Maine, and she’s never left me stranded.

The trophy in the pic is at a local bike rally (Buffalo Hollow) and was for 2nd place in stock class (the bike that won first was a late thirties Indian, and well deserved.)
