From the seller’s description:
In 1970, Dick Mann catapulted Honda into the limelight with his historic Daytona 200 win on a Honda CR750. After his success, Honda offered dealerships approx 200 factory CR750 race kits replicating the victorious CR750. The $10,000 kits were very expensive at the time, roughly $60,000 today! Not many were sold and many were recalled and destroyed for safety reasons….Honda didn’t want people getting killed on their new CB750 model! This particular bike was made as a tribute to those rare factory CR kit racers. This bike was raced vintage class in Sweden at the famed Anderstorp raceway for many years, retired, and then shipped to the U.S. for its CR makeover. We wanted to keep the bike as period correct 1970’s as possible. The motorcycle came with the longer wheelbase 1975 CB750F frame (CB750F-1016329) and a 1971 K1 race motor (CB750E-1078205). The vintage black 4 into 4 Swarbrick exhaust, gas tank, and Lytron oil cooler/filter were sourced from a local collector. The CR oil tank was made by AHRMA 750 racer Dennis Weinhold, and the billet aluminum adjustable foot controls were made by AHRMA racer Jarred Halloway. The CR seat cowl, fairing mount & hardware were purchased from Mead Speed UK. Custom made aluminum CR gauge mount with Smiths 100 PSI oil gauge and 12k Spanish reproduction tachometer. The front end is a 1978 CB750 F2 with dual disc brakes, progressive springs, new brake lines, safety wired bolts, and fork seals. Rear shocks are adjustable OHLINS. Rear rim is an alloy Morad 18″ and the front rim is an alloy “high wall” Akront 18″. Both have Conti Road Attack CR 2 race tires. The rebuilt motor has 1.0mm over pistons and rings making displacement from 736cc to 761cc. Shaved engine cases with charging system and starter motor removed. Cylinders honed, valves lapped and bronze valve guides installed. Norris race cam installed (spec sheet dated 1978). New heavy duty primary cam chains, overhead cam chain, roller, and guide. New braided oil lines,31mm Keihin CR Special carbs, and a Dyna electronic ignition and coils. Performance clutch plates, and heavy duty clutch springs. 13T primary sprocket and 48T solid aluminum rear sprocket with an RK 530H heavy duty drive chain. Clip on handlebars and steering dampener. Lithium Ion battery with charger. New carb intake boots, thumb release gas cap, CB750 petcock, and master cylinder brake cap all period correct 1970’s. Unlike Mann’s sunrise orange bike we painted the gas tank, seat, fairing and striped front fender in vintage Honda livery red and silver colors. Yellow “flash” and white number plates are also painted on. Kick start or rear roller start. Starts, runs, sounds, shifts and stops great!! Here is a chance to own a classic piece of Honda race history! This beauty is AHRMA race ready or waiting to be posed in a collection looking like it just rolled off the track. I have a clear non-op California title in my name.
