Now regarded as one of the classics of the 1970s, the Honda 400 Four appeared in 1974. Described as 'the poor boy's musclebike', its combination of a four-cylinder, overhead-camshaft engine in a 250-sized package endowed it a performance better than many 500s. With a stylish four-into-one exhaust, six gears and rear-set footrests, it was every boy-racer's dream and a huge commercial success. First registered on the UK mainland as 'THA 44R', this example was purchased by the current vendor in 2004 and has been on display as part of his private collection in the Isle of Man since February 2011, which is when it was last serviced (bill on file). Only sold because of – reluctant – downsizing, 'H410 MAN' is described as in generally good condition and should only require a modest amount of re-commissioning. The machine is offered with expired MoT (2004), Honda Service Booklet, Haynes manual, IoM registration document and V5/2 New Keeper's Supplement. No reserve.
