The Dime City Cycles / Iron & Air Giveaway Bike

1978 Honda CB750

"Mabel" The Dime City Cycles / Iron & Air Giveaway Bike

Unless you were some poor sob trying hard to get off the grid, you've probably heard all about it by now.

Those upstart moto heads at Iron & Air Magazine, on some hair-brained, PBR induced trance, decided to try to convince us, Dime City Cycles, to rebuild a Honda CB750 and then, get this - GIVE IT AWAY.

UPDATE: Steve Matiasz of Brooklyn, NY had his name drawn live at Ace Corner Barber on Sunday, October 14, 2012 as the winner of this beautiful ride. Congratulations Steve!

The donor was a rusty old POS that we found, Herm haggled for, and then hauled back to the shop to begin the ceremonial breakdown. Wasting no time, according to Iron and Air they say we demonstrated that they we are raging beasts when it comes to reducing a classic ride down to a bucket of bolts. And we also demonstrated that they're bad ass builders of the highest order by bringing this girl back to life and have her looking hotter than ever.

The Dime City Cycles '78 Honda CB-750K Cafe Racer glows with class. From its show stopping Legendary Motorcycles bodywork, the stainless steel Cone Engineering muffler with 4-into-1 exhaust, to the Progressive Suspension, the DCC 750K Cafe is the styling leader. With its powerful engine and sharp handling, you're guaranteed to grab all the looks from the opposite sex at the local pub.

Its throaty engine sound has no equal. Power comes from four cylinders displacing 736cc's with a Dyna ignition keeping things in pace. The eight valves are operated by a simple, single overhead cam. Fuel is metered through four synchronized Keihin carburetors, equipped with an accelerator pump for throttle response that even 'Mike The Bike' would be proud of.

With five well-spaced gear ratios to select from, the 750k can split lanes through downtown traffic or stretch its legs on those long country roads we all love. And when you encounter that one obnoxious squid on a GSX-R 600, you can merely slide back a tad in the saddle, down-shift a gear or two and leave him in the dust - completely taken back by the fact that an old heavy lump of metal just ate his modern power range cycle for breakfast.

While the DCC CB-750K Cafe does sacrifice the ability to carry a passenger in exchange for performance and styling, you won't care; women will follow you wherever you go anyway. Sleek and low-profile instrumentation, new Progressive front suspension with reduced static friction, and special dual-stage damping shock absorbers that can handle small as well as harsh bumps with equal efficiency will make heads turn everywhere. As one of the world's premier cafe racers, the DCC CB-750K Cafe has a reputation second to none. It has the performance, styling and heritage of a champion.

Special Thanks To...
