Does anyone have any info on the CB750 automatic that Russ Colins raced in the mid 70s ?

Any help would be appreciated.

I’ve got a nice original article about it in my stash.  I can find it.

Thanks George, I would really appreciate that.
While searching through Google for anything I could find, I picked up on an old thread on here about Russ and low and behold, young Russ joined our forum.
I'm sure you'll find it.

Where's Jon Weeks been?! He SURELY knows  ;)
As of today 3/13/2012 my original owner 75 CB750F has made it through 3 wives, er EX-wives. Free at last.  ;-)

I've spoken to Jon Jerry and I've even spoke to the guy who bought it off Russ and he has some timing tickets if he can find them.

I like the look of that bike!
How to fix the turbine to allow higher rev before lift off is the trick, right?

A few people can do the modifications to the torque converter, I think Jonathan Weeks might have sent mine away.
