Motorcycle News - Track Prepped: A CB750 from one of Spain’s top race teams
The Spanish team Campos Racing has taken this cross-pollination a whole step further. Sporting director Adrián Campos is a keen bike builder, and has just finished this beast of a CB750F.
“The goal was to create a mix between a cafe racer and a racing motorcycle, while looking as close as possible to the car Leonardo raced with,” Adrián explains.
This particular CB750 also had just 650 kilometers (400 miles) on the clock when it rolled into the Valencia workshop. “It was brand new!” says Adrián. So he’s left the engine internals alone, and just freed up the gas flow with a stunningly curvaceous exhaust system.
Further down is the aluminum single-sided swing arm from a Ducati 1098, adapted to fit the CB750F’s frame. Adrián admits that it was a tricky part of the build, but then again, we’re sure he’s faced worse challenges in the workshop.
The 1098 also gave up its triple trees and clip-ons, and the front fender is a carbon Ducati Performance part. The Brembo Monoblock brake system should make the bike even quicker around a track.
The tank is a modified unit from a Laverda Mirage 1200: a bike we haven’t come across before, and a more civilized version of the legendary Jota.
There’s a neat little custom belly pan too, adding a measure of protection to the exhaust headers without dominating the look of the bike.
So what does 19-year-old Leonardo Pulcini think of the Honda? “At the moment he is still my driver, so I don’t allow him to ride bikes!” says Adrián.
Wouldn’t you be?
