We are grateful to the vendor for the following description:

“I owned a CB72 (250cc version of this machine) in the mid-sixties as a teenager and always loved it. These machines are the epitome of Honda's 1960s golden years. The bike still looks wonderful today and when you look back at what other manufacturers were producing at the time it is no wonder the Japanese manufacturers were so successful. These bikes need to be loved and preserved for enthusiasts now and in the future.

This CB77 has been lovingly restored and is in absolute pristine condition. The engine has been completely rebuilt by professional engineers Partsmade. The hard-faced camshafts were supplied by Megacycle Cams of San Rafael, California. These cams (part no. 121/00) improved the mid-range power with good low-end response and were sent to California for the works to be carried out at significant expense. All the alloy components have been professionally polished. Instrumentation was restored by a Japanese instrument specialist and recalibrated leaving the mileage in place from my initial purchase. The Honda Owner's Club has provided a certificate of authentication verifying the serial numbers of the frame and the engine.

The headers have been remade out of polished stainless steel to match the original profiles. The single repro CYB seat shell was purchased from abroad to mimic the works Honda CYB options offered at the time. Should the buyer wish to return the machine to what the original manufacturer intended many original parts will be included with the sale and comprise of the following:

  • Twin seat
  • Rear passenger pegs
  • Painted full-length rear fender
  • Chrome silencers
  • Carb tubes (original carb filters still installed in the machine)
  • Ignition coils
  • Original gear-shift arm
  • Two new full-carb service kits."

This 1966 Honda CB77 was purchased by the current vendor from a gentleman who imported it from the United States as a complete project. Stripped and completely rebuilt at a great cost of many thousands of pounds with all receipts on file, some slight deviations from standard as in a ‘cafe racer’ style. Components have either been stripped and cleaned, rebuilt or resprayed to a high standard. We have been advised the Honda is ‘running very well’ and still needs to be run in.
