Lot 322: 1963 Honda 125cc C92

Collectors' Motorcycles, Bonhams (16 October 2005)

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 unit-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 The first 125cc twins - the C90 tourer and CB90 sports - appeared in 1958 and were swiftly superseded by the C92 and CB92 respectively.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. This example came to the UK from Ireland in 2004 and was purchased by the vendor in November that year (number transferable). We are advised that the cylinder head gasket has been replaced, the valve timing/clearances checked and that the engine is a runner. Offered with Swansea V5.
