Registered on 2 October 1967, this Honda S800, which has just benefited from a comprehensive restoration, is in a particularly enviable condition. Its history is quite clear, the car has known only three owners in the past 37 years and its current owner, a former professional, acquired the car in 2003. He undertook in recent years a complete restoration. The body was completely disassembled and stripped for a refurbishment and of course, a new coat of Gray. The interior was entrusted to an upholsterer. The black upholstery, the carpets and the headliner have been redone. The numerous mechanical works include the refurbishment of the engine with new pistons, as well of the clutch, the brakes and the radiator. The car is in a beautiful condition, and the mechanicals still need to be honed. The file that comes with the car includes invoices, as well as a fairly complete folder with photos of the restoration process. The limited availability of parts makes the refitting of a Honda S800 quite a demanding job. Rare are the opportunities to acquire such a beautiful example of this Japanese sportster that will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
