1979 CB750F: CELEBRATING THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY WITH TWO CAMS
How does a company go about replacing a motorcycle that had become a legend in its own time? Well, if you’re a company like Honda, you do it with sheer elegance of engineering. The 1979 CB750 weighed in with some pretty impressive technical credentials, specifically a new 749cc twin-cam engine with four cylinders, four valves per cylinder and double overhead camshafts that employed bucket-and-shim adjusters in place of rocker arms.
Such impressive credentials boosted performance to record-high levels, with the CB750F Super Sport model in particular offering horsepower and handling unsurpassed in its class.
