I purchased this 2 owner beautiful example of the bike looking in this Teal/Ivory art-deco style factory paint. Honda only manufactured for 3 years at the Marysville plant in Ohio USA before they were forced to stop due to a Harley Davidson lawsuit.
This particular bike was initially registered to a gentleman in New Mexico and I purchased it directly off the second owner who had moved to Florida when I lived there. I used the bike for many miles enjoying the Florida sunshine and would have no qualms in riding across the States from East to West with complete reliability.
These bikes have rapidly become classics in the USA, finding clean ones like this one is extremely difficult. A comment from my Facebook forum states from a complete stranger “Where do you find these beautiful full dress shadows? So rare.”…
Far more exclusive than a Harley-Davidson even though most people think thats what it is.
This bike has had 2 owners and was first registered in New Mexico the dry desert air obviously suited it as it is in excellent condition.
All original factory colours set this bike apart and garner lots of thumbs up and comments.
A lot of extras are fitted and an easy transformation from full dresser to solo cruiser is easily achievable for a flexible riding style.
New tyres and service just completed this is a nicely balanced and easy bike to ride with an unbelievable amount of punch from a 1100cc and super low maintenance from the shaft drive and water-cooled V Twin make this an easy bike to live with.
This bike has been fitted with some rare parts including Cobra light bar inc passing lights, chrome eyebrow shrouds, cruise control, Vance and Hines exhausts, Cobra footboards, highway pegs plus a brand new Clearview screen (to be fitted).
Do your research before trying to make any silly offers
Nicest in the UK and capable of winning shows exactly as it is. A future Classic.
This is a really nice bike that sounds awesome and gets a lot of attention wherever it goes both in the United States and even more so here in the UK.
