c.1964 Honda 125cc C92 Project
Engine no. C92E-3504713
Honda introduced its first parallel twin - the 250cc C70 - in 1957. Although the crankshaft was of the 360-degree type, the Honda differed from the traditional British twin by virtue of its unitary construction, horizontally split crankcase and chain-driven overhead camshaft. The first 125cc twins - the C90 tourer and CB90 sports - appeared in 1958 and were swiftly superseded by the C92 and CB92 respectively. Today these Honda twins are among the most collectible of early Japanese classics. A challenging project or useful source of spares, this incomplete C92 is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered without reserve.
