Honda CB750-4

Honda's are hot on auction block, 3 May 2021


Mecum results suggest a trend

Historic Hondas are hot property on the auction scene at the moment, something confirmed by results at the recent Mecum Las Vegas sale. Here are three prime examples.

Honda CB750-4

Above is a 1970 750-Four K0, a relatively early example in very good condition, but with no claim to fame other than that. It went for Au$71,300 (US$55,000, GB£40,000).

The record for this model was for a 1968 pre-production example (above), which was sold in 2018 by H&H in the UK for a staggering Au$400k (US$308,000, GB£223,000), or more than three times the pre-auction estimate.

While we could kind of understand the big money commanded by the early production K0, that didn't explain the very strong result for this 1976 K6. It was a tidy example – but otherwise unexceptional – and went for Au$36,300 (US$28,000, GB£20,300), or at least 30 per cent more than we might have expected.

Honda CBX1000

And then came the mighy 1980 CBX1000. Again this was a tidy low-mile example, but it was the second iteration in the black livery. It went for an impressive Au$44,200 (US$44,200, GB£14,100), again nearly 30 per cent higher than might be expected.
