The Honda CB750A Hondamatic (lovingly called the "Dogamatic" by Honda service technicians) is a motorcycle that features a wet sump, torque converter, and parking brake, and has no clutch. Made by Honda from 1976 to 1978, it was designed to appeal to beginners and people who otherwise wouldn't want a motorcycle.


1975

The CB750A Hondamatic 750 was sold in 1975 in Canada -- one year before it was offered in the USA. It was available in one of two colors: Muscat Green Metallic or Candy Antares Red. The exhaust system was a 4-into-1. The bike had wire spoke wheels with aluminum rims. The transmission was a 2-speed with a fluid torque converter. The engine was a 736cc SOHC 2-valve air-cooled inline 4 cylinder with a chain drive. The serial number began CB750A-6000001.

1976

The CB750A'76 Hondamatic 750 was introduced into the USA in 1976 but the Hondamatic had been sold in Canada in 1975. It was available in one of two colors: Muscat Green Metallic or Candy Antares Red. The exhaust system was a 4-into-1. The bike had wire spoke wheels with aluminum rims. The transmission was a 2- speed with a fluid torque converter. The engine was a 736cc SOHC 2-valve air-cooled inline 4 cylinder with a chain drive. The serial number began CB750A-7000001. The 76 did not have stripes on the tank or side covers. Mirrors are shorter than normal CB750K's. The control wires go through the handle bars on this year (I assume 75 also).
