For those not to familiar with the CR750 concept, it’s an interesting story: in 1969,Honda had launced it’s game changing CB750 four, and keen to establish the bikes credibility as a serious contender, it entered four of the machines in the 1970 Daytona 200. Success at Daytona offered huge benefits for the company in terms of promoting the Honda CB750 and consequently Honda signed up Dick Mann, Ralph Bryans and Tommy Robb to spearhead the assault. During the race Mann rode conservatively, preserving his machine whilst his major competitors retired with various problems, resulting in Mann taking victory. Honda had proved it’s point.

Tommy Rob was an Irishman, who had been one of the first non Japanese riders to be signed for by Honda in the early 1960’s and was a TT winner, was a great ambassador for Honda, This particular CR750 was acquired from Ireland about 6 years ago and has been signed on the top of the fuel tank by the man himself Mr Tommy Rob + the fairing still carries its scrutineering sticker from the Isle Of Man TT, where it was paraded, You may also have seen the bike being paraded at the festival of 1000 bikes.

So how about the bike itself. I guess that the pictures and the YouTube video tell most of the story, but there is more to the bike than meets the eye, First of all, unlike most of these replicas, the bike is road registered, and comes with a full V5c registration document, Prior to the bike being put on display, it was mot’d on a daytime only basis, The bike is ready to ride or show, Having said that, ignition is a total loss system due to the removal of the alternator to reduce engine width.

We have a huge history file that comes with the bike, including invoices, CR750 artlcles, relevant Classic Racer magazines, photographs of the build, and even a signed picture of Tommy Robb.
Lots and lots of paperwork + photo’s, just too much to read,
