This little Honda really is something special. This machine is based primarily on a 1970 Honda SS125. As it transpires, the only true SS125 components that remain on this machine are the crankcases, but that makes it no less exceptional...

This lovely 673cc Honda Eurosport was entered by Robert Francis. The machine itself has an interesting past history; it had been abandoned in a spacious yard in South Wales, with nothing to indicate how it had gotten there or why. It was consequently rescued and restored.

From the mid 1950’s to the mid 1960’s, the mighty four-cylinder MV Agusta was one of the most competitive racing motorcycles around. It conquered race after race with its seemingly endless power, but its decade of domination was eventually quelled with the arrival of a more modern triple in 1966...
