Post Sale Update: After being relisted, this Dholda sold for $4,050 after 7 bids on eBay.

Dholda is the name of a custom Belgian race shop founded by Jean D’Hollander – he got the moniker by blending his last name with Honda. He also happened to be quite successful, with victories in multiple endurance races at Mugello, the Bol d’Or, Spa, and more. The seller of this example states that Dholda won the 1978 and 1979 24 Hours at Spa-Francorchamps on a modified CB900F that was bored out to 1000cc, and then he proceeded to create a limited number of street legal replicas for the public.

Dholda still exists as a Belgium dealership, and you can learn some more about their history here. The sidecovers on this CB have a reference to the Francorchamps victories.

This example (VIN: SC012015416) was sold on eBay in January of 2017 for $5,300, and in that listing the seller stated that he had been in touch with Jean’s son, Mike. The bike was imported from Europe in 1980 or 1981, and sat in an air-condition warehouse for most of its life. The current seller brought it to Vermont, where the bike is currently registered for the street. It got ~$1,650 in work done in 2017, including new tires, a battery, and a full service. Neither of the previous owners knows exactly what’s been done to the motor, but they’ve estimated horsepower to be around 110-120. The odometer shows 13,554 km (8,422 miles) and the bodywork is said to be in excellent condition with the exception of a small crack on the lower fairing. There’s also an issue with the turn signals that will need to be addressed. Other recent work includes rebuilt carbs and new fork seals. The seller states that he “can email service records and previous emails from Dholda Racing.”
