I figured I would post updates on my 1964 Honda CYB77 Superhawk here to see how much interest there is.
I bought this CYB77 Superhawk motorcycle about a year ago and finally started getting it ready to be street legal.
As it turned out, this bike was never registered in Canada. The registry said to call the Insurance Bureau of Canada to get a VIN verification (they do that for old campers & trailers all the time supposedly). If that doesn’t work a new VIN number would be assigned at some extra cost.
I figured this would take months of paperwork etc., but in fact I received a call within a week after submitting my info online, AWESOME! A gentleman came out to check out the bike, we went over the VIN etc and he gave me a VIN verification sign off sheet.
I made it down to the registry and done deal, got me some plates (although there is nowhere to mount a plate on this bike at the moment)
Since I bought the bike I have added a CB77 wiring harness so that I can add a headlight and a tail light. I also added an alternator (have 2 spares) and all new cables. Changed the oil and other regular maintenance stuff.
Quick rundown on the Honda CYB77
The Honda CYB77 Superhawk is a decked out CB77 with factory racing parts from Honda and most parts are rare, almost non existant.
The bikes had no electrical (alternator out), no headlight or taillight, no wiring harness etc.
Most Honda CYB77 versions I have seen are missing components, like the rear sets or the rear fender, etc.
The parts that made it a CYB77 are listed below and these are the components my bike has.
- Rear short fender, mine also has the racing number plate mounts/brackets
- Cafe’ racer style seat, RARE!
- Reconfigured rear sets with no brake switch mount. Most I see online have the standard CB77 rear sets not the linked set
- Triple tree, clamp ons & very grippy grips
- Front shocks/forks are specific to the CYB also
- Rear Shock Caps
- Front steering damper
- Exhaust – Some old photos I have seen show the bike with what looks like the regular set of CB77 pipes, others came with the pipe horns. Mine came with stock mufflers but I added knock off Dunstable exhaust (hear it here –
- Front number plate mount
- Original blue paint 🙂
The one I picked up also came with tons of extras, boxes and boxes of extras!
The bikes kicks over on a 1/2 kick, its incredible how easily it starts.
This bike is for sale for the right price.
Added a few photos of it, and will update often.
