In the 1960s, a gentleman named Dave Degens started building frames under the brand name of Dresda. He initially had success with Tritons, and then big companies started to approach him. One of the most notable was Japauto, Honda’s importer in France. They had Degens build a racing frame for Honda 750cc and 900cc motors, and the team ended up winning the Bol d’Or endurance in 1972 and 1973. Dresda expanded their production into Honda street bikes like this one…though nowadays if you want a new frame from Dave, you’ll be looking at Triumphs.

This bike (VIN: CB750E-1013731) has 3,000 miles and the seller calls it an “effective vintage road racer with superlative history.” In addition to the Dresda frame, it features a close ratio transmission, Hindle exhaust, Keihin carbs, and Ferodo brakes. The engine’s had some work done, including a Megacycle cam.
