Honda CB750 K2 cafe racer

Honda CB750 K2 cafe racer
When Honda’s CB750 appeared in 1969, Olaf Tiemann rode his BMW R26 to the nearest big German city to have a look at it. Forty years later, he’s finally got a CB750 K2 of his own in Australia, and he’s turned it into a lovely cafe racer. This bike was stripped back and mechanically restored before being fitted with a new front end and exhaust system, a custom seat, and rearsets. The tank in the picture is the original Honda item, but a replica Norton tank will be installed soon—after being shortened to fit—and then the bike will get a paint job and finishing touches such as new instruments and decals. Check out Olaf’s website for more pictures. [See also the amazing CB750 K0 vintage race replica created by World Motorcycles of California.]

    I’ve been following this site for a whole time. Off all the installments this is the blandest. By far. It’s an okay bike, but honestly, who would stop and stare when this one would be on the kerb? All respect to the builder but to me it’s nothing more than a half baked, uninspiring effort to give the Mother of All UJMs a hint of personality.
    More of the extravaganza please…

    I agree Kenneth, simple and does what it says…..I like the look of the radial tyres too. So many glitzy chops et al with shiny bolt-on goodies around, sometimes a simple and well-engineered bike demands more of my attention than those. Keep the bikes coming please! Noel

    Hallo Olaf,

    wo haben Sie den Sitz bekommen? Haben Sie den selber gemacht oder irgendwo gekauft. Sieht richtig Toll aus.

    Gruss aus Holland
