Lot Details
c.1967 Honda C200 Sports
Registration no. FBE 43D (see text)
Frame no. C200-227943
Engine no. C200E-138741
Introduced in 1958, Honda's classic C100 Super Cub 'step-thru' moped gave millions the world over their first taste of two-wheeled mobility. Larger-engined versions of the original 50cc Cub were soon made available alongside sports models that were proper small motorcycles. The first nominally 90cc sports model, the C200, arrived in 1963 boasting an overhead-valve engine of 86.7cc that produced 6.5bhp at 8,000rpm. Its cycle parts were typically Honda, consisting of a pressed steel spine frame with swinging-arm rear suspension and leading-link front fork. The C200 lasted in production until 1967, latterly alongside the overhead-camshaft CS90. Presented in semi-restored condition, the paintwork having been redone, this partly dismantled C200 is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. The machine comes with a 1975 tax disc recording the registration as 'FBE 43D' (a Lincolnshire mark); however, DVLA correspondence on file states that they have no record of this registration. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves with regard to its completeness or otherwise of this Lot prior to bidding. No reserve.
