Bought this off a 75 year old gentleman who had been the last custodial for 15 years and he had serviced it "at no expense" over his ownership & it starts on the button & runs a treat. However he thought the bodywork was excellent ... I'm afraid it's not! Cracks/blemishes abound BUT IMPORTANTLY all in tact, nothing major & easily resprayed it would look wonderful.
Mechanically he was an ex engineer in an early life so looked after it (loads of paperwork receipts etc.) and from the age of 60 -75 as you would only expect being a retired "Pru" man it has had an easy life!
I bought it with a view to enhance it but it's not up to my normal stock & I've decided to just sell on as I have too many other bits going on.
It is a perfect winter project for someone & consequently priced very very reasonably.
These little pocket rockets are getting increasingly rare and are such a pretty bike from the 80's I hope it goes to a good home. Most have been raced/crashed as an ideal track bike, and have to follow 2-strike prices at some point - surely? 4 cylinders, beautifully made & very rapid on full bore at a screaming 15,000 rpm!
Have V5, 2 keys, lots of old invoices & clocks were converted by Martin to MPH so has done approx. 28,000 miles.

What can I say about these iconic bikes, has to be the most sought after livery of the 90s & apart from braided hoses this is amazingly factory original & fantastic condition example. Being a Honda in this condition FOR SURE it's going to appreciate rapidly ... it even has the most expensive MUST HAVE ... original tool kit 🤣 JUST AN AWESOME LOOKING BIKE IN AWESOME CONDITION ... enjoy!
