Powering a Legend
With its low handlebar and forward-leaning rider position, the Honda CB750F captured the attention of the Japanese public immediately upon its release in 1979. Its air-cooled DOHC 16-valve inline-4 engine was boosted to 70hp in a minor update in April 1981, at the same time as the addition of air shocks. At its peak, the CB750F was one of the leaders in the Japanese 750cc class, and now the engine at the heart of that motorcycle masterpiece is available as a detailed 1/6 scale kit.

The Heart of a Z1300
When it was released in 1979, the Kawasaki Z1300 had a larger engine than any of its Japanese-made competitors. The 1,286cc liquid-cooled inline-6 DOHC engine had an output 120hp, in a shaft-driven system, and the results were outstanding: a top speed of 220km/h, with a 0-400m time of 12 seconds. From winding mountain passes to open road touring, the Z1300 was at home wherever it went, with an alluring combination of performance and balance. Now, the engine at the heart of that motorcycle masterpiece is available as a detailed 1/6 scale kit.
