I had a CB 750SC.
Buy the Yamaha.
It's only a bit heavier, makes a lot more power, has a much bigger fuel tank, and has 18" wheels instead of 16". Much easier to find tires for it now a days. I always found the 16" wheels a little less stable. Rear disc brake on the Yamaha too. If I remember right, I think the handlebars were adjustable too. Will carry a passenger/luggage better too. The big selling feature with the Honda is the hydraulic valve adjusters, but back when they were new, we saw quite a few that would self destruct if run too hard.

Having said all that, get whichever one is the most original and in the best shape.
If you get far enough away, you'll be on your way home.
Piss off, I'm in my Happy place.
