1964 Honda C90 non roadworthy in IP22 postcode Diss Norfolk - £500 ?

Post by alexsnelling » Tue May 14, 2019 10:00 am

Hello C90 club,

My father has left us a derelict 1964 Honda C90 in the Diss area of Norfolk for disposal. Condition is unroadworthy, photos or further description to follow. If anyone local to Diss in Norfolk with a passion for the C90 would like to inspect the wreck and make us an offer to take it away please contact me, first come first served. Last MOT 1983 gives you an idea...

If nothing happens sale wise on this in the next 10 days by a strange coincidence there is a Club event happening in Scole over the Bank Holiday weekend.

You might get a visit!

I went to see this tonight. :D

I met Alex, and his mum, who had the pleasure of riding pillion on this some 50 years ago!

The bike is a 1963 C200. It is presently without it's engine, but as clearance proceeds, there may be some hope of it turning up.

The whole thing has surface rust. The frame has no holes I could see. The bike is definitely salvageable, but isn't an oily rag resto.
If the engine doesn't surface, this bikes mounts will take a Chinese engine with a small amount of metal removal.

The old white logbook is included, and it is listed on the DVLA database. However this won't necessarily guarantee you a V5, DVLA may require to see the bike in MOT'able condition before issuing one. :x

Watch this space, as the bike will be up for serious sale in June, by which time the workshop clearance will determine exactly what comes with it.

Best bits; On the DVLA data base, Old style logbook included, fairly solid frame, chain cases intact, very nice front badge!

:D

Thanks for your time and this feedback Jim, very helpful. We're clearing out the workshop - and going engine hunting - on June 1st/2nd and I'll post an update here afterwards with the results. Watch out probably for an ebay link or an invitation to make offers.

I'd stick it on here for a week first, if only to save you the hassle of dealing with the inevitable unhelpful queries on ebay. 8-)
