Synopsis

In 1969 The Honda Motor Company launched a motorcycle that many consider to be the world's first super bike. The Honda CB750 had the first mass-produced 4 cylinder inline engine, a single overhead camshaft with 4 carburettors, a 4 into 4 exhaust system and came with electric start and front disc brakes as standard. This specification set the bar higher than had been seen before on a production motorcycle and lead to the other Japanese motorcycle manufacturers introducing their own 4 cylinder motorcycles, albeit some time later. Following the success for the original CB750, Honda went on to produce a range of motorcycles using SOHC 4 cylinder engines. All with their own characteristics, they proved to be reliable and smooth running and even today can offer real reliable transport on modern roads if restored correctly. Now with some examples over 40 years old many enthusiasts wish to restore these classic machines. How to restore Honda Fours has been written to guide the enthusiast through his or her restoration of these fine classic motorcycles.

Growing up in the early 1970s, surrounded by Yamahas, Hondas, Suzukis and Kawasakis, Ricky Burns had no choice but to fall in love with motorcycles.Since those early days, he has oiled, maintained, fixed (and broken for parts) many fine specimens of now classic motorcycles but, nowadays, he tends to restore them, rather than break them.Having personally restored many classic motorcycles, from small Yamaha two-strokes, to large Honda Goldwings, he has now decided to share his restoration experiences with like-minded enthusiasts.
