1962 Honda CR 110

Price:   £under offer

 

This remarkable NEW OLD STOCK Honda CR 110 provides an opportunity to own a piece of motorcycle history that is truly one of a kind. It has never been raced or ridden, has never been taken apart, worked on or restored. It is exactly as delivered by the Honda factory in 1962, right down to what is left of the air in the tyres. The first owner displayed it as art for many years, the second and current owner has since respected it's individuality, making sure the engine turns and keeping it clean and lubrictaed. It's never even had fuel in the tank (which is spotless, by the way). Still has original lacquer on aluminium parts and has never been safety wired.

 

This Honda CR 110 cannot be reproduced, replicated, reconstructed or restored to this state of originality and is in the original state of preservation that people dream about. This Honda defines and provides an understanding of what "authentic" really means.
