c.1961 Norton-Honda CB750 Special
Registration no. RPR 271
Frame no. BJF61
Engine no. CB750E-1022569
Norton’s ubiquitous Featherbed frame has long been the special-builder’s friend, proving versatile enough to accommodate power units of all kinds ranging from the humble British single up to relatively modern Japanese fours and even the occasional car engine. ‘RPR 271’ was constructed in its present form over a period of five years. We are advised that this particular frame is a ‘wide line’ type dating from 1961, while the engine is taken from a 1969 Honda CB750. Other noteworthy features include Yamaha TD/TR/TZ type front and rear brakes; Manx-style alloy fuel tank; central oil tank; clip-on handlebars; rear-set footrests; ‘racing’ seat; alloy mudguards; four-pipe exhaust system; and Honda electrics, switch gear and instruments. Last taxed for the road in 2002, the machine has been kept on display in the owner’s private museum and is offered with three expired MoTs (most recent 2001) and old-style Swansea V5 registration document. A wonderful opportunity to acquire a unique special boasting better looks than a Honda CB750 and considerably more power than any contemporary Norton.
