1980 Honda CB750F Super Sport DOHC
This one of the bikes that seemed awkward and unimpressive to me when they were new. I didn’t like the squarish tank or the way the side covers synced up to it. The seat bump was also kind of annoying to look at. For some reason as time has passed I have found myself enjoying the squarish styling. I always liked the paint. I’ve never liked the Comstars and probably never will though. This was a awkward era for a lot of MC companies. They were making bigger better machines that had more power but every cc they added also added weight. It was before everything went to plastic, aluminum and box or trellis frame construction. The 1980 750 weighed 500 lbs and new CBR1000 weighs 460 lbs. Not a lot lighter but a lot more powerful. This bike is a nice clean example of an era of pre full faring bikes and post simplistic tech.
