1964 Honda CA200
The Honda C200 also known as the CA200 was the bigger brother to the original Honda 50. The CA200 uses an 87cc push rod single with cast iron barrel and head rather than the usual OHV aluminum engine that is so common is small Hondas. This bike can be seen in the early 1960s Honda advertisements using the now famous tagline “You meet the nicest people on a Honda”
This iconic little Honda has been restored from the crankshaft up. Everything is new OEM Honda or the best reproduction parts available. (The seat is original because it’s in very good condition and we could not find an original or accurate reproduction). We searched the world over for many months until we finally secured an original Honda exhaust system.The wheels are freshly replaced with new spokes, rims and tires. The engine rebuild as well as the complete restoration was done by a 30+ year Honda Motor Company factory service rep. This is they guy they would send out to dealers who had a problem with a CBX or CX500 Turbo and he would show them how to fix the problem. He has a wealth of knowledge about Hondas and we were very fortunate to commission the bike to him for restoration. The bike has less than 3 miles on it since the restoration was completed. This is the real deal for true Honda collectors who want to own a piece Honda’s early history.
It’s ready to ride if you choose to do so or if you want to draw a crowd then show up at a vintage bike show with this little jewel. Originally restored to be a keeper for a personal collection, the owner has reluctantly decided to let it go in hopes that it will go to a great new owner.
