For our second Celebration Open Day, interest and participation has exceeded expectations for this year’s Open Day celebrating all the Honda SOHC 4-Cylinder models which started in the late 60s with the world-famous CB750.

Since its launch in October 1968 at the Tokyo Motor Show, the iconic Honda CB750 set many new standards in the world of motorcycling, creating the term Superbike. The CB750 was then quickly followed by further SOHC 4-cylinder examples, firstly the CB500 Four then the CB350F, CB400F, CB550, CB750F and CB650 throughout the 1970s.

To be held at The David Silver Honda Collection museum on Saturday 28th September, this special celebration day is set to attract one of the largest gatherings of SOHC 4-cylinder Honda’s.

Renowned Honda CB750 expert John Wyatt has confirmed his attendance, and will join the expert judging panel for the various awards.

Entries received to-date include:
– Many original, unrestored early model examples as well as many owned from new!
– From Sweden, a CB750 sandcast and a CR750 works race kitted examples
– Examples of the CB750 Phil Read Replica & CB750SS Honda Britain limited-edition specials
– John Wyatt’s CB750A Hondamatic, a unique Japan only version!
– Examples of the rare CB350F Four, not originally sold in the UK!
– Ex British Championship racer and Police motorcyclist Karen Wicks from Louth with her, owned from new, CB750-K2 that featured in TV series ‘Last of the Summer Wine’.
