Post Sale Update: This Phil Read Replica sold off eBay for an unknown amount…to Bike-urious reader John B!

Honda Britain commissioned 400 examples of a Phil Read Replica from Colin Seeley to celebrate Phil’s victory at the ’77 Isle of Man TT, but only 150 were built before Colin and Honda had a disagreement.

Unique features include the tank, seat, exhaust, fairing with Cibie lights, and some Seeley-specific parts. Unfortunately for Honda, the year this bike was released, Phil Read was bested by Mike Hailwood on a Ducati in the Isle of Man TT. They’re rare in the UK, and much rarer in the US. I’ve seen some mentions that just 35 examples remain. For more information on the Phil Read Replicas, check out this Motorcycle Classics story – which features this exact bike!

This example was restored by David Burton of JBS Motorcycle Painting, and it was the cover bike in the May/June 2020 issue of Motorcycle Classics magazine.
