On Vox: For Sale: 1965 Honda CB77 (Superhawk)

In the interest of full disclosure, it is hereby decreed that this bike is officially on the block as of right now:


  • 1965 Honda CB77 (Superhawk). Reg says 1968, but the wiring harness says 1965.
  • It’s original white (rare). The paint is not as nice as the picture makes it seem. There are lots of little dings and little touch up jobs.
  • The bars and cables are mostly wrong. Charlie laughed a little at them as he identified the various bikes they came off of. 
  • New battery, and it charges just fine, which is good because....
  • The kickstart lever is off. I have the lever, and it sure is pretty, but the cam it attaches to is stripped. Charlie says this isn’t as hellish a fix as I thought it would be.
  • Tires could stand to be replaced, although I’ve ridden on the freeway with them and not died.
  • Comes with an extra rear wheel (I think the P.O. bought this to have a better brake drum, but never put it on) and two extra coils (I don’t know if they work).
  • Also comes with rebuild kits for the carbs.
  • Everything works, including the tach, speedo, lights, and the column lock (I have a key for it).
  • You can ride this as is (I do) or dump a few hundred bucks in and make it a pretty nice O.G. bike.
  • Registration is good through July of 2007. Yes. It’s registered. And titled in my name. Praise Jesus.
Private message me if you're interested and we'll talk about the price, which is reasonable.

I'm NOT SHIPPING it. San Francisco's nice. Make a trip out here and pick up your bike.
