  Classic Honda
Posted by: Silverhog - Yesterday, 06:58 PM - Forum: Introduce yourself here - No Replies

Good Evening,

I'm very happy to be posting on this illustrious site, having recently joined the HOC.  I realise that this is the forum for introducing oneself, so if I cough that my first (on road) venture on two wheels was a Lambretta LD 125 in 1970, you will understand my heritage!  Over the years many two, three and four wheeled vehicles have come and gone.  Where possible I now spend my time restoring classic old bikes, predominantly British - I currently run road legal a BSA single pot B40 (1964) and BSA Bantam D7 (1960).  Whilst my main interest to date was old British bikes, (there is nothing like finishing a long run with more oil in your socks than in the sump!) my head was turned by a Honda CM 400 T (1980) which looked like it needed a lot of love and affection.  Imported from the USA a couple of years ago, she now sits in my garage whilst I arrange for some new rubber booties, and try to find out why she won't run like the well oiled machine for which the Honda marque is renowned.  Having changed the coil, HT leads and plugs, I suspect the carbs may be the next port of call.  It would be great to correspond, email, meet with anyone interested in this restoration project who can help me along the way!

Best to you all,

  Help please: No log book for late 60s Honda 50
Posted by: Zelly - 18-11-2018, 04:56 PM - Forum: Introduce yourself here - Replies (2)

Hello everyone, would be really grateful for some help/direction.

A friend of mine has a very old Honda 50, given to him by a neighbour who had a garage sale. The Honda had been sitting in his garage since the 70s. I have an email confirming this - that it was his to give away and that he gave it away.

The bike has a registration number, but DVLA can’t find any details of it, so my friend has no log book.
My friend believes the bike originates from late 60’s/early 70s.

I’ve spoken to the DVLA - they have said to complete the form V765 and V55/5 as best I can (they said that a lot of the details requested don’t relate to this vehicle), send them to The Honda Owners’ Club with photos, the old tax disc (there is one, but it is rusted into the holder - I can photograph it if needed), photos of the bike and the letter from the owner proving that the HONDA 50 was his and he gave it to my friend.

They said The Honda Owners’ Club will then send the info to the DVLA and a log book will be sent out.

He’s spent about £600 restoring it (see photos below).

Can you help with this, please? He’s dyslexic and the paperwork is too hard for him, so I’m trying to help him.

Thank you very much for your time.
All good wishes,

  New member; back on two wheels
Posted by: SeanFD - 14-11-2018, 04:03 PM - Forum: Introduce yourself here - Replies (1)


After many years absence I am now back on 2 wheels on my resurrected CB750K2; it took me 2 years from a serious start after some 10 years collecting bits and pieces and intermittently doing bits of work now and again.

Along the way, I collected a CB750K1, a CB450K1 and a CB400F2, all in need of restoration, so plenty to keep me occupied while waiting on registration.

  BMAD Festival Paignton cancelled
Posted by: Scooter - 03-11-2018, 08:33 PM - Forum: General Nattering - Replies (1)

Sad to say the BMAD Festival in Paignton which takes place on May Bank Holiday weekend has been cancelled. A real pity as it's a great event, but I sympathize with the organisers when lack of sponsorship and additional red tape makes things difficult. The Wednesday bike nights will continue though, starting next June

  Newbie in Devon on a Benly
Posted by: Scooter - 02-11-2018, 08:29 PM - Forum: Introduce yourself here - No Replies

Hi new to the forum and shortly new to the HOC. 
I live in Torbay and have recently purchased a Benly CD 200 and love the little bike

I have to admit, my two year history is one of Lambrettas and Vespas hence my username 'Scooter'. I've also a passion for MZ's and owned a few pieces of Eastern Bloc iron.
My Honda history has seen me own an SS50, a C90 and a CD175 and now the Benly. Ok, it's not gonna break any speed records (and maybe a little slow for club ride-outs), but I love the classic look and the sound. Will this lead to me purchasing other Honda's in the future??? Quite possibly if I can smuggle them in the garage without 'er indoors noticing.

I'm 72 and finding my old Brit bikes seem to be putting on weight.  Just last month I bought a CM200 TB advertised in Tansha the VJMCC mag. with a view to a lightweight to extend my riding years.  It is completely original and seems to be fairly rare, only four on the road in the UK according to "Carlogbook" website.
Previous machines were a C90 then a 400/4 which I never got on with after selling a lusty 500 single. then a CG125 another ride to work bike with performance that surprised me, usually beating my boss around the South circular on his Firebade. A couple of years ago I tried a CB250RS, a true lightweight with plenty of power, but the riding crouched position so uncomfortable it had to go.  The latest bike a real "sit up and beg" which should be quite comfy.

Hi Everyone,

I'm Matt,

Live in Bedfordshire, UK.

Riding a 2002 Honda CBR600F,  owned it about two & half years.  It's my first Honda after owning Suzuki & Yamaha's in the past.

I was after something I could put through it's passes & have some fun on at the weekends but also use as a daily ride for commuting in & out of work and would also be suitable to put in some long mileage runs when needed without killing my body.

The CBR600F has so far ticked all the boxes, I love it.  Unfortunately hit an oil spill few months ago & smashed all the bodywork so is currently in the process of being put back together as I took this as an opportunity to strip right down & do a full overhaul of all bearings, seals etc & a good clean and repaint as I intend to keep this one for my primary bike for a long time to come.
