c.1980 Bakker-Honda CBX1000
Registration no. EOT 742W (see text)
Frame no. none visible
Engine no. CB1E-2017855

A successful motorcycle racer, Dutchman Nico Bakker turned to frame-making in the early 1970s and is now on eof the most highly respected specialists in this field. Catering at first for the racing fraternity (supplying frames to the likes of Phil Read, Johnny Cecotto, Giacomo Agostini, Kork Ballington and Jack Middleburg among others), Bakker branched out into providing frame kits to accommodate Japanese four-cylinder motors and the six-cylinder Honda CBX, as seen here.
The vendor supplied the engine to Nico Bakker in 2014. Bakker had the engine reconditioned, fitting a hydraulic clutch, and then built the frame and supplied the other components. When collected in 2014 the machine was complete but unpainted. The vendor rode the bike once before stripping it and having the frame painted. It was then partly rebuilt, the fuel tank, exhaust system, seat and front fairing side panels being loosely assembled. Additionally, the vendor advises us that the engine will need to be refitted correctly in the frame. The machine will require careful re-commissioning/assembling before returning to the road and thus is sold strictly as viewed. The registration 'EOT 742W' is recorded in the HPI/DVLA database; however, there are no documents with this Lot. Prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with regard to this motorcycle's completeness and mechanical condition, and the validity of its registration number prior to bidding. Offered with a Nico Bakker paddock stand.
Offered with key
