What to Expect

Larger but rarer version of the sixties CB72 that holds together better but suffers the same piston and gearbox problems after 30,000 miles. Don’t be taken in by the classic brigade, the CB77 benefits from upgraded suspension (weak and wallows), brakes (the drums crack up eventually) and electrics (stock lights are dangerously inadequate). Some grey imports from the States on offer at reasonable prices.
