‘Limited edition’ or ‘celebration’ models have long been established as a sound marketing technique for both cars and motorcycles, so when Phil Read won the Isle of Man’s inaugural Formula 1 TT on a works Honda in 1977 the stage was set for a special version of the Japanese manufacturer’s trend-setting superbike. As a result, Honda commissioned Colin Seeley to build a batch of 150 replicas of Read’s winning machine. Not to be confused with the Seeley-Honda, which used a Seeley frame, the Phil Read Replica relied on special bodywork finished in ‘Honda Britain’ livery to set it apart from the standard production model. After the initial batch of ‘Phil Read’-badged bikes had been built, a further 250 of the succeeding ‘Honda Britain’ models was completed. This example is offered with Swansea V5.
