UK Plate Bracket?
« on: May 02, 2020, 07:33:52 PM »
I picked up what I believe is the UK Plate Bracket for the CB750.  There aren't any holes in the bracket to mount a plate.  How would the plate originally been mounted to this bracket?  Is as simple as drill a few holes in it or are they special clips?



Thanks
Scott

Yes, that is a 750. Mainly used on the K2 but, is NOT for the UK K6 and you can attach the plate with double sided sticky pads or drill holes  ;)

I think this is the UK/Euro 750 one - well, it's looks the same as the one fitted to my old UK K1?

Bikes: 1970 US CB750 K1 and a UK 1976 Z900 A4
Cars:  1958 Triumph TR3A and a 1972 TR6

Yes, no rib on the top and not a complete square for the plate.
Makes me more sure the original one is 500.

Scot did you pay a lot for it and would you want to sell it on?

I think this one is from CB500/550.
I recently obtained the same, from CB550F european version (proven). It fits smaller tail light, I want to replace my big light with bracket on CB550K1 (us version). But before sent for chroming. I had there 3 drilled holes for license plate that will be welded. I'll find another way to fit licence plate w/o drilling.
CB750K7 US model (1977)
CB550K1 US model (1975)

Erny, the one in your picture is 550 UK but, it was also used on the 500 from the middle of 1974. Maybe down to who was supplying Honda.

Bryan, not sure what you mean by rib. Please explain ? The part number for the 500 and 750K2 were the same P/N 84701323600B

The CB250k type has a rib pressed into the top face.

The one I have definitely has a rib on the top.  I didn't pay much for it.  I may still try to use it with some modification.  These pictures show the the rib.  I'm attempting to use the smaller oval taillight.  Any other thoughts on what this bracket is?




Thanks for the help

Not 100% but I think it's 84701-292-600B . Originally fitted to CB450K1  (hence 292 part no. ) then CB250/350K.  The UK versions of the CB450K1 and the CB250K0  and CB250K2 all had the oval tail-lamp.

The mounting plate is 6 x 6 inch and the tail light mounting holes are 95mm center to center on the CB750K2 and CB500 four

Thanks Trigger.  My bracket has the same measurements as the bracket in Trigger's post.  It looks the same with the square plate mount and the rib.  Is this a CB750 bracket?  I ordered a repro oval taillight but it won't be here for a few weeks. 

Thanks
Scott

You are correct Bryan but my 750K0 has the rib & oval lamp but is a ---300-- P/N and the 500 also has rib but ---323 part no. ..500 had square lamp though as does Triggers.

I will measure my 750K0 one in the lamp area later ... it has the oval lamp and is original to the bike.

This is the ---323--- 500 part.

UPDATE : Just measured oval lamp between  centres and it is  95mm like Triggers square one ...so you should be OK  :) :).
