Property of a deceased's estate c.1975 Honda CB200 Registration no. JNY 49N Frame no. CB200-1060752 Engine no. CB200E-1062325
Introduced in 1973, the Honda CB200 sports roadster superseded the old CB175 and came with a tubular spine frame, twin carburettors, a five-speed gearbox and either a drum or disc front brake. Back in 1974 Bike magazine found theirs a little slower than both the Yamaha RD200 and Suzuki GT185, though considerably more economical: 'It might not be the fastest thing around but somehow it looks and feels more like a real motorcycle than its two-stroke counterparts. It's a little bike with a big heart.' This example carries a tax disc that expired in June 1981, which is almost certainly the last time it was on the road. Kept in dry storage, the machine will require re-commissioning, at the very least, before returning to the road and thus is sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this Lot.
