Honda CR93 racing motorcycle

Date made: 1962

Description: When Honda wanted to break into Europe in 1959, they knew they had to win in the hardest race of all, the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT). Within a few years they dominated motorcycle racing. This CR93 was developed for privateers – Honda did not care who won so long as their name was on the machine – and was used at the TT firstly by Bill Ivy and later Gary Dickinson.
