SKU: TAM21150 Categories: ,


This factory finished masterpiece depicts the #1 Honda RS1000 which competed in the 1981 Endurance World Championship. Fitted with an air-cooled 4-cylinder DOHC 999cc engine capable of 150hp, the RS1000 featured all the latest Honda technology fine-tuned during their domination of endurance racing in the late 1970s. A unique aspect of the 1981 bike was a specially-designed cowling that had been slightly enlarged to reduce rider fatigue during the grueling races. Although unsuccessful in defending their 1980 title, the Honda team was able to take both the 8 Hours of Suzuka and the Bol d’Or 24-hour race.
