The CBX750, or RC17 was manufactured from 1984 to 1988. Developed from the CB750, in parallel with the VF750, it was an entirely new design and had 91 HP. It was used by the police in Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Turkey, Gibraltar and Ireland. It had a 16" front wheel, the way of some sportbikes of the '80's, which improved handling but affected stability.

Fuel R100 Tracker HP




1979 BMW R100 RS “Tracker HP” by Fuel Motorcycles - Barcellona, Spain

This bike (HP stands for High Performance) was commissioned to Karl Vives by Dave from England. Last year, the Dave’s bike unfortunately broke during a desert stage of Scram Africa. When the trip ended he left the bike to Fuel to fix it and turn it into a flat tracker: small tank, solo seat, high exhaust pipe, simple and light. The project tooks five months of hard work. 

Questa moto (HP significa High performance) è stata commissionata a Karl Vives da Dave, in Inghilterra. L’anno scorso, la moto di Dave ha avuto un guasto durante un tratto desertico dello Scram Africa. Alla fine del viaggio, la moto è rimasta alla Fuel per la riparazione e, con l’occasione, la trasformazione in flat tracker: serbatoio minimale, sella singola, scarichi alti, semplicità e leggerezza. Il progetto ha preso cinque mesi di duro lavoro.
