mate if you dont know they have carbs etc
then the go is you will need someone
to tune and do engine etc maintenance..
this is or was one of hondas statements
'see what we can do', which while a road bike
is also fairly no compromise, with up to 22,000rpm
etc in an inline 250cc 4 cylinder super sport bike..
theres one locally goes up a nearby hill [coogee]
sounds like he's killing it, but only going up
at surburban speed limit speed..
ie, its designed to function at high revs etc..
no doubt a honda classic, and they are still around
at fairly low miles [30k miles] but most much higher..
indicates enthusiast owners or others maintaining them..
if you can find one with lowish miles kept garaged etc
then as members note it would be an investment bike.
ive been eyeing them off for years, but have no garage
now or even decent tools.. check out this for sale list,
typically around 3 - 4 grand..
note one comment on 'bikesales'; 'i bought it to learn on
but its more of an animal than i anticipated' etc..
so bear in mind also that since lams there will have been
plenty of young blokes using them as lams bikes
- not the ideal consciencious owners..
still, if you have a garage, it would be worth it
to have one just to play with, and learn etc...
