....except it's a Honda CX.
Water cooled, offset heads.
Always liked them though.
Came in 500 and 650 cc.

In THAT case, it'll turn out to be a very expensive Guzzi project.   :grin:

 A guy tried to convince a couple of us that his CX was a "racing Harley" .

Well, racing Harley with it was, most likely, a lot of fun!!!

If memory serves correctly, Honda was dead serious about racing flat track back then. They took a CX, sawed off most of it, bored it, and turned it 90 degrees. I think it had teething problems and minimal success, but Honda wasn't afraid to through everything they had at a  project.
The RS750:

 The RS wasn't based on the CX . Two different breeds of cat , although you are correct , Honda did start out with a modified CX .
