Heres a nice 1962 Honda CB72 (check the numbers) that managed to win the 1961 Thruxton 500 mile race. I knew Honda was clever....... :-)

Hi,

It's seems being a scam to me.

The old racing picture shows clearly a SLS frontbrake, long shifting rod etc., there parts are not on the showed bike. I thought that Bonhams checked there references, being a action house of name. If this isn't right, what else is ?

Going back to the YouTube link provided, has anyone found it available on DVD ?
More user friendly than 2 hours online.

thanks

Just did a little research and the race was 1962, not '61. Still not sure that that is the correct bike, though.....
