F750 #406

Here is another F750 that appears to be based on an original Motorrad frame. I am aware there were 4 frames originally delivered to Butler and Smith in early 70s. Two were built into race bikes, one currently at Barber Museum and the other held in a private collection (currently being refreshed). As noted in my other thread 1 of the 4 is currently being built up from scratch by my father and I so I can only assume this is the other frame.

If anyone has other pics or knows the history of this bike please post some info here.

Hello Eric,
there is at least one bike based on these frames here in Germany.
In the early 70ies Helmut Daehne built two F750 racers.
One has been destroyed, when the exhibition, where it had been presented, burned down.
The other one is still alive.

Best regards,

PS: Greetings to Udo

These were Helmut's two F750 racers.

The one with the front drum brake is gone.
