cb750 10th anniversary limited edition

stevefern
Hi guys.
Just got my hands on a honda cb750 10th anniversary limited edition 1979.
with owners manual and original tools still in brown leather case.
point is..if I get frame recoated it needs it. Will it devalue it in any way.
Still has all stickers on frame. I would lose them.
Will a coil fit it from any cb750.
Many thanks.Will sort some pictures soon

As long as you keep the frame black it will not devalue the bike. As for the stickers, take pictures of them, and measure them, and you can get a sign shop to reproduce them for you. I have had them done before and the shop that did them charged around $5.00 a piece. As for the coils, no. Not any coil will work. You need coils for an electronic ignition. The CB 750 DOHC from 79-83 coils are all the same though, so they are not hard to find.

The engines never matched the frame. However only being "25" apart, I really doubt that engine has ever been changed.
