Make or Break? Honda Benly CD200.
“The London look”
I end up with lots of bikes that have spent their life in London. Once a London bike ends its day plodding around they tend to end up left in the shed or garden. There is a lack of barns within the M25 to push them into!
“When was it last used?”
The tax disc displaid expired in 1997, that is now 25 years ago! For a quarter of a century this Honda twin pot hasn’t turned a wheel. Other than a side panel that’s gone awol the Benly is pretty much complete. It’s even got its original keys and an old white style V5 that shows that it’s only had 2 owners from new!
“Do these have a following?”
Yes! I have met a few people that are drawn to these bikes, so I had high expectations that this one would sell fast. I was right! Within a week this old London bike was off to Louth in Lincoln to see out its days with a bloke who already owns another six! I love a happy ending.
