Item:264066142386Classic Spares Recycling Ltd is pleased to offer this lovely little Honda CD200 Benly. First registered 24 March 1981, and on an 'W' plate, so it will be tax and MoT exempt in four years. This is the six-volt version. It's in Sutton, SW London. This is a very nice example of a charming little commuter bike (I've owned several and, indeed, have one in daily use). It's done just 36,600 miles, verifiable by a stack of old MoTs and some bills. It is MoT'd until June 13th 2019. 10 previous owners - not a lot for the time. It is almost all original. Original paint except for where someone has painted the lower fork shrouds black, for some reason. You could easily repaint them. The exhausts are patterns/replicas: they look identical, but they have a slightly deeper tone than the very quiet original Honda items. Oh, there are signs of touch-up black on some bits of the frame. Cosmetically, it's remarkably good. There are some minor chips in the paint, of course. There is some surface pinpricking of the chrome, as you'd expect on a bike that's getting on for four decades old. There is some surface corrosion on the rear guard, under the seat, but it's not rotten. The chrome on the front wheel rim is pretty good: the rear has some rusty spots on it. The seat cover has a small repair effected with tape (pictured) and sealed on the edges with superglue. Aftermarket replica seat covers are about £25, but I just think it's nice to keep it original for as long as possible. These bikes are bog-basic indestructible little things. One carb, one set of points, four gears, six volts, drum brakes, enclosed chain, and a lovely great fat seat. They do about 75 absolutely flat out, so about as fast as a decent modern 125, but they have oodles of torque and can be ridden down to 20mph in top gear. Fuel consumption is around 75mpg. A full service takes about an hour - you don't even need to remove the tank to access the valve gear. They uprated the bikes in 1983 to 12-volt and electronic ignition. That was a worthwhile mod (and older 6-volt bikes can be easily converted) because the six-volt starter does struggle to light the fires in the depths of winter, but it always starts on the kick and once warm, there's no problem with the electric start. Basically, an electrical system with the power of a mobile phone was never a good idea if you wanted it to spin an electric starter. Anyway, this one starts on the button. Some people are asking £2,000 and more for these. Frankly, that's absurd - or just greedy. This one is up for £1,200, which is a very realistic price. Please understand that this is an ancient Honda, no matter how good it is, and there is no warranty or anything like that. For this reason I will put 'sold for spares or repairs' on the receipt. Payment by the Pal of Pay will not be taken. Please feel free to check my feedback for reassurance. Viewing is fine: positively welcomed, actually.
