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 The first 125cc twins - the C90 tourer and CB90 sports - appeared in 1958 and were swiftly superseded by the C92 and CB92 respectively.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. Restored in 1995 by a previous owner, this C92 was inherited by the vendor from his brother, who died in August 2012. Last used in March 2011, the machine is described as in generally good condition and offered with sundry restoration invoices and Swansea V5C registration document. No reserve.
