Honda RS750 V-twin flat tracker

Classic Racer - - NEWS -

Ray Abrams also has a rare Honda RS750 V-twin flat tracker in his work­shop, which Terry Poovey rode. How­ever, dur­ing the 1980s the AMA saw to it that the RS750 went the same way as thetz750 flat tracker some 10 years be­fore­hand. Abrams re­calls, “The guy who did the best on one was Ricky Graham. I think he won 12 Na­tion­als in one year. It has a monoshock rear sus­pen­sion, they are more pow­er­ful and maybe 25lbs lighter. Har­ley com­plained about them and the AMA stiff­ened things some, so Honda said ‘screw you’, we’re go­ing away.”
