I saw Neil Trundle giving this side car racer a spin at Dunsfold Aerodrome last week, the programme says it's a 1972 Honda, but, maybe it's the 1980 Marlboro paint job, some how the bike does not look quite that old, can any experts confirm the type and year ?

Answers maybe credited and used to correct a blog.

Thanking you in anticipation of your responses.

Morning Rupert & Phil, :wave: yes great photos, he has got it almost right, but as we have discussed before a couple of parts are probably original, the rest new/newer parts, does that make it a restoration or a replica? My pic is almost 40 years old! :eek:

If you google Neil Trundle you can find some pictures of the outfit in 2009 with the same body work but in black, whats underneath that & the red & white body could be a Honda circa 1972? but looking through some of my programmes from 1972 International races, no one was using a Honda engine. :confused:

Yep, a TR 750 in the Stan Woods livery (though the 3 Suzuki decals on the fairing look bigger on the original), run with the original pea shooter exhaust pipes at this meeting.

It might be a 1972 Honda engine but I can't for the life of me work out why you would install one in a worm outfit. 1972 is historic Period 4 out here and they are all front-exit chairs, which continued till the late 70s. LCRs and other worms didn't surface until after Biland.

Isn't there a radiator in the front of the 'sidecar' nose Glen ?

Looks to be Renn, I doubt it's a '72 Honda. Though remote oil coolers mounted there are quite common on the P4 machines.

Well, I suppose it's a water radiator which would rule out a Honda bike engine of the seventies
