    Ah, I was non-specific on purpose. I guess an early one (60's?), before the six. The frames were all based on(copied from) the featherbed anyway. Just wanted to see if one existed at a museum or somesh*t. I've been tinkering as of late as per our thread on frames for last spring.

    So, anyone know where one (any early model at all) is on display?


    ...and Joe, Old Skull is playing next week.

    well barber museam has a works 250/6, team obsolete has one too!

    chip pitcher imported and then stuffed a european market 250/4 water cooled street bike engine in a replica "works" frame he had built to spec by m3 racing (mark mcgrew). also george decamp has the same bike, but i don't know if he had a period/replica works frame made.

    here is a beginning for your visionquest young jedi.

    hollah,

    tex

    I've got quite few pics of 60's RC frames. Most of them used the engine as a stressed unit and had no front down tubes. So I'm not sure how close they would be to a featherbed frame. About the closest street frame you'll see to an RC frame is the CB160/250/305 (CB93/72/77).
    From the stuff I've read the Honda chassis in that era handled pretty poorly compared to the British stuff.

    Duuude,
    The soundofhonda is the coolest site I've hit in a good while. Those RCs are sick. And the sound quality is better than I expected. Nice.

    Thanks guys, just wanted to get some ideas. And yes the Joep thing was what got me going. Actually waiting for an e-mail from him...

    Branson- forward me those pics if you would and, who said that about the handling? They could'nt have been too bad with the TOTAL DOMINATION and all.




    (i could'nt handle it)
