Honda CB750 Police

Just when you thought you’d seen every possible version of Honda’s iconic CB750, here’s another: the super-rare CB750P/K0 Police model. The exquisite bike shown here is a 1970 example owned by a collector in Japan, and it’s a delicate antidote to the overblown style of its Harley-Davidson and Moto Guzzi contemporaries. The combined headlight/speedometer is derived from a design created for the CB77-based Superhawk ‘full dress’ Police bikes, and a blue light is built into the box fitted behind the stubby solo seat. The siren (bottom image) is a cable-driven mechanical item, triggered by a second lever under the clutch lever; a friction drum is forced against the rotating rear tire to activate the siren. There are crash bars at the front and rear, but they’re so discreetly integrated into the design you barely notice them. I’d take one of these over a checker-striped CB750 custom any day.
