Description

This breathtaking Honda 750 Four K1 was sold new in Switzerland and first registered on the 12th of August 1971.
Only a couple of months later the bike was taken into an accident and repaired in 1972 with a new frame. Since then it was retained as collectible item by a bike dealer in Geneva and never used for almost forty years. Subsequently it went to two collectors, the exact mileage is unknown but since 1972, this fabulous 750 Four only ran an incredible 930 km.
The condition can only be described as immaculate and it really looks like being a new one juts coming from a 1971 Honda showroom. No parts were repainted, retreated or chromed, the bike is 100% into original condition with exception to the saddle which was renewed due to disaggregated sewings.
This is very likely one of the most fabulously preserved K1 in existence. It was continuously and meticulously maintained to be kept functional and more recently received a service at Honda in Switzerland.
A short test drive brought us back to the thrill of 1970s. There is nothing comparable to this one, it would satisfy the most demanding collector.
