'Victoria' Honda CB175

Zeke found this little Honda CB175 buried under a pile of exhaust parts.  He said, "I will call you Victoria." Victoria was built for Naked Speed (Caferacertv) on the Velocity Channel part of Discovery Channel network. Zeke DeZeeuw developed the design by adding an NSU Sportmax dustbin fairing while paying homage to the great RC166 Honda Race Motorcycle that Mike Hailwood, number 7, raced for MotoGP and won 10 out of 10 races in the 1966 World Championship Series, Isle of Man TT winner, and captured both the riders and manufacturers championship. The fairing was manufactured by Airtech Streamlining and the custom suspension was made by Ohlins.  The full race motor was crafted by us under the instruction of our race team at www.dotheton.com led by design development geniuses Dennis 'kopcicle' Ryan, a flatrackracer, and Richard 'Teazer' Nowson, a road racer.    Ben and Eric Bostrom, road race and flatrack champions, pushed Victoria to her limit in an attempt to DO THE TON.
