James Irwin’s ’81 CB750F

James Irwin’s Story


I have owned this bike since new and it’s currently approaching 100,000 kms.

It has Ohlins suspension, a Wiseco big bore kit, braided steel brake lines and a Barnett racing clutch.

The suspension upgrade allows it to corner hard with stability, grounding the pegs, exhaust and sidestand: Kinda surprises some of the modern sportbike guys!

The paint is white lacquer with lots of clearcoat, and I had that and the chrome done around 1987.

James Irwin in Ottawa, Canada.
