Based on Honda’s 1970 Daytona winning CR750, this build took 350 hours of fabrication to pull of the right proportions and looks of its bigger brother. The frame has been modified to resemble the CR750, using Honda RSC (HRC) drawings, we welded in a top tube to resemble the 750, de-tabbed, and welded in mounts for the oil tank (which is the battery box, and the wires run through the oil line). The tank, oil tank, and seat were all made by hand in aluminium, the pipes were made by the same talented fabricator. GXSR front end was fitted, with a lightened Cognito Moto front hub, and Excel supermoto rims were laced up. Modern suspension and brakes are the only modern twist to what is essentially a Dick Mann CR750 replica in every other way, including the RHS shift linkage. The engine has seen substantial mods, 3mm over-bore, kibblewhite valves/springs etc, balanced and ported, with new rods, bearings, cam, chain tensioner, and married to a new set of Keihin CR carbs. The entire build has been documented, and I have all invoices. Featured locally in Superbike Magazine, Duas Rodas magazine in Brazil, Bike Exif, Return of the Cafe Racers, and selected as one of the top builds by ROTCR for 2017 on instagram. Handles great, smokes hinckley Triumphs, and goes like stink! Contact me for videos, images and any other info you require.
