Introduced in 1966, the Honda CD175 was aimed squarely at the market sector that regarded motorcycles merely as cheap and convenient transport rather than thrilling lifestyle accessories. Not exactly an exciting performer, the CD175 would nevertheless cruise comfortably at 65mph while at the same time delivering around 70 miles to every gallon. A lengthy - by Japanese standards - production run of almost 12 years proved the rightness of the basic concept. Currently displaying a total of 30,890 kilometres (approximately 19,100 miles) on the odometer, this example is a good basis for restoration (the engine turns over) but does have some parts missing or damaged. CMS has many parts to suit this model and it should be noted that many of the more plentiful cycle-part and bodywork spares for the CD125 will fit the CD175A. The machine comes with copies of Dutch registration documents and is sold strictly as viewed.
