Description

Phil Read captured the TT Formula 1 title at the 1977 Isle of Man campaigning a factory-prepared Honda CB750. To commemorate the win, they enlisted Colin Seeley, a legendary British frame builder and racer, to transform standard CB750F2s into race replica motorcycles. There were supposed to be 400 built, but only 150 examples of the Honda CB750 Phil Read Replica were ever made. Such a low production number means the motorcycle is a rarity, and by some accounts, fewer than 40 are known to still exist. Built in Britain, the replicas were never officially sold in the United States. However, a few of them have found their way over. This example is extremely correct, even the 4 in to 1 megaphone style exhaust. This CB750F2 starts, runs and rides spectacular and will leave you grinning ear to ear. Don't miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity!
