    • ModelTransalp XL600V '50th Anniversary'
    • FE Cat descThe XL600V Transalp ably represents the uniquely focused machines that Honda has designed, as much to venture off the beaten path as to travel in comfort along the highways and byways of the urban jungle. Based, in part, on the Paris-Dakar racers, the Transalp looked like a rugged desert stormer but it offered superbly comfortable ergonomics and the ability to cruise motorways with remarkable ease. The 50th Anniversary Edition of the Transalp harkened back to its original silvery blue colour, to provide a nostalgic 'retro' look for older customers who remember its astonishing debut, while at the same time provided a fresh 'new' look to appeal to younger riders for whom the Transalp is an old standby. This rare Transalp XL600V anniversary model is one of the last of the desirable 600cc twin disc models. Having covered just 2,970 miles from new, it is completely original and unmolested, including its anniversary key and finished in Winter Lake metallic blue with stripes and graphics. It is supplied with the commemorative emblem, a complete, full Givi luggage kit, original handbook and service book, a V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate which expires in June 2020. This is an opportunity to own a highly competent and rare, limited edition Honda. Guide Price £2,000 - £4,000

    • ModelCB72 250cc Super Sport
    • FE Cat descThe CB72 was a complete game changer when it arrived in the UK in 1963. A sixties teenager's dream with inclined, twin-cylinder overhead camshaft engine sitting in a race style spine frame, with 8" twin leading shoe brakes to both the front and rear. The 180° parallel twin was almost over-engineered, and of course, because each cylinder fired separately, they each required a carburettor and two sets of contact breaker points. The engine, in typical Honda fashion, was a stressed member of the frame, and the handling was very good. This original UK supplied 1966 Honda CB72 250cc Super Sport was purchased in 2015 by the current owner, a specialist film rental company, just after the motorcycle had been fully restored. Finished in black and chrome, this has had four owners from new and has been in many television soaps in the UK including EastEnders. This 250 Super Sport is supplied with a V5C registration document and a few old MoT test certificates. Probably the defining motorcycle for any Honda enthusiast, this handsome and beautifully engineered machine is offered here without reserve.

    • ModelCB550/4
    • FE Cat descIn the mid 1970s Japanese manufacturers seemed to find the market for a sporting middleweight motorcycle a little confusing. It was as if the they were not sure where their customers wanted them to go next. There were plenty of flashy 350 and 400 bikes from the big four but these were mostly two-strokes with the notable exception of Honda’s fours. Honda was also producing a middleweight four-stroke, four-cylinder sports tourer and, in the process, it created a whole genre. It had launched its CB500/4 in 1971 to complement the class leading CB750/4. Within a few years, Honda was competing with Suzuki and its softly tuned two-stroke GT550 triple. Honda increased the capacity of its four and the CB550/4 replaced the CB500/4 in 1974, producing a popular model that remained in production until 1978. This 1974 Honda CB550/4 was purchased by a specialist film vehicle rental company in 2013 after it had been imported in to the UK early that year. The mileage showing, when purchased, was 31,916 miles, meaning that this motorcycle has only covered approximately 470 miles since 2013. The reason being that the bike has not been used on the road and only used on TV and film sets. Painted in the classic Honda brown, this CB550/4 is supplied with a V5 registration document and a couple of previous MoT test certificates from when it was imported. A true Honda classic offered to auction without a reserve.
