"Sand cast" those were the real early ones. Still not worth that much though.

Sandcasts all original are worth some serious money.

Sandcasts all original are worth some serious money.

I don't think they bring 13K even when completely restored. This bike is not restored and has mechanical issues. If someone buys this the economy has OFFICIALLY turned the corner (or someone just hit the powerball and is really into CB's)

i just got a free sandcast a few months ago with a siezed engine and diecast cases, i cleaned her up and sold her for $3500 on ebay to some lady in japan. they are definately worth some $$$ but not that amount..........

Anyone know the VIN number for sandcast? It was a certain string of numbers that designates these motors right? Just picked up a 1970 CB for a friend, sure would be cool if it were early enough. Did they go into 70 or stop in 69?

I think hondachopper,com lists the years for the different cb750 motors, not sure how far back they go.

the Honda "CB750" Production motorcycle, manufactured until September 1969, inclusive of engine numbers CB750 1000001 to CB750 1007414

taken from the 'honda cb750 sandcast only owners club' website. very particular model which are only worth something because the original cases were made in sandcasts and brittle. the models suffered from broken cases when the chain broke still under warranty and honda had to come up with a fix. that's when they came up with diecast cases which are smooth vs. the rough texture of sandcast. also, diecast cases don't have vins stamped on them. the clutch cover on both types of cases have 10 bolts and the oil pan on the bottom i believe have 20? in either case both sandcast and diecast will bring a coin......

i can't believe i got that thing for free! my friend had been bugging me about some pos bike that was in some old lady's yard, she wanted to get rid of. turned out she was the original owner and the bike had suffered from a broken cam in the mid 70's. been parked in the garage all those years and recently taken outside to see if someone wanted to haul it away!!!

I traded a $200 guitar for one 2 years ago and gave it to Homebrews wife. It's going to be a nasty chopper once it's finished, hopefulyll this year.
