Luxurious interior appointments and advanced technical specification help explain why this second generation Prelude was at the forefront of design.

The 1829cc OHC four cylinder power plant has a three valve per cylinder layout and produces 105bhp at 5500rpm. Bonnet up exhibitors will enjoy the cleanliness and originality with all manufacturer markings and stickers intact.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original bill of sale reveals the first owner paid £150 for the optional 5J X 16 alloy wheels which are all unmarked and shod in branded 185/70 R13 tyres with ample tread. The spare wheel is still fitted with the factory supplied Michelin XVS item. The four wheel disc braking system, ventilated up front, is servo assisted and diagonally split to ensure safety. A recent overhaul has been performed.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on 17th February 1984 by Honda Main Dealers, Sheaf Motors in Sheffield to a Mr A Green. The purchase invoice reveals a total price of £7443.25 was paid which includes a rear spoiler at £35, body strips at £30 and alloy wheels at £150! Returning to the supplying dealer for servicing until 1994 whereupon a relocation to Grantham entrusted a local garage for regular maintenance. The service book has 14 entries backed by physical invoices. Upon the owners retirement the vehicle was inherited by his son, Mr J Green, who used the vehicle sparingly until 2002 when a total of 42,140 miles had been covered. Every MOT and tax disc has been neatly filed until this point when careful storage followed. Mr J Green made the difficult decision to part with the car knowing it was his fathers pride and joy but they both wished the vehicle to go to a good home. A suitable owner was found by KGF Classic Cars in July 2016 whereby Mr Singgih, an Indonesian national and avid Honda enthusiast, purchased the car having owned the exact model many years ago. His plans to export the car to his home country were sadly thwarted by masses of red tape and associated costs. KGF Classic Cars were delighted to purchase the car back in readiness to find the new lucky enthusiast owner. Every document has been retained, from handbooks to sales brochures when purchased new. The service book still has the Honda Owners Card neatly housed in the pouch to the inside front cover and all keys with dealer key fobs are present. A rare unmolested and fun modern classic.

Honda CBR600F

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

An absolutely pristine Honda CBR600F with just 2,286 miles and two owners.

EQUIPMENT
Combined Pivot aluminium frame, Honda Pro-Link rear suspension, lightweight hybrid swingarm, extruded aluminium spars, Honda Multi Action System (HMAS) suspension, CDI ignition system, ignition cut out switch, lockable fuel filler, faring and side cowels, front screen, rear grab handle, lightweight electronic instrument panel, speedometer, tachometer, fuel reserve warning lamp, multi-reflector headlamp, lockable seat with under storage, Honda toolkit. Dealer accessories; Datatag security.

EXTERIOR
Finished in the factory original combination of Sparkling Red (code R127) and Pallet Purple (code RP124), the appearance and condition of this successful and iconic motorcycle can only be described as impeccable. Launched as the first variant of the CBR model with an aluminium frame, this CBR600F has been preserved in truly amazing condition owing to the very low 2,286 miles covered and careful storage. Having never been restored or refurbished this example represents a very unique survivor and to describe it as a time warp is wholly appropriate. Small openings in the faring allow inspection of the beautifully machined Combined Pivot aluminium frame which is perfect. All rubbers, grips and ancillaries are in line with the minimal usage of a cosseted example and the supplying dealer number plate is still fitted. A small tank protector has been neatly added. Virtually as good as the day it was built and very special.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Likewise with the frame and body, the emphasis on saving weight and increased agility was firmly in mind with engine production on the CBR600F, contributing to an overall machine weight saving of 16kg on the previous model. Born in the heat of racing action and designed to allow competition in the FIM World Supersport Series, the engine peaks at 108bhp with a specification list that will excite and delight any true petrol head. A heavy duty but lightweight seven-plate clutch relays the six speed gearbox ratios specially selected to match the engine’s character.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The three spoke 17” wheels remain in the factory black and are shod in the original Michelin Hi-Sport tyres with 120/70 R17 front and a wider width of 180/55 R17 allowed on the rear. These soft compound tyres still have the manufacturing nobbles and display no cracking. There is plenty of tread, however renewal prior to regular riding would be a wise safety consideration simply due to age. A powerful braking system features a 296mm dual front disc with four piston callipers and 220mm rear disc with single piston calliper, both with sintered metal pads. True engineering expertise.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on 1st September 1999 by Honda agents Jack Machin Motorcycles, this example has covered a mere 2,286 miles with just two knowledgeable enthusiast keepers from new. The history file compromises of a fully complete Honda Motorcycles book pack containing the original service booklet displaying supplying main dealer stamps up to 2,019 whereupon the bike was placed into storage. The owner’s manual, Owner’s Gold Card and all factory build cards and Datatag security literature is held within the wallet. Completing the history file is the MOT certificates from the pre storage period, leather dealer key fob and the spare key with even the plastic sheath still intact! A motorcycle specialist invoice dated May 2016 for £721.35 includes a service, check over and recommissioning after an extended period of inactivity. Quite possibly the best unrestored example there is and something for the Honda enthusiast or classic motorcycle collector to behold. An iconic and successful competitor with this example riding just as good as it looks.

EXTERIOR
This exhilarating UK supplied DC2 Integra Type-R is finished in factory standard Championship White (code NH-O). Originally the only colour option available for the model, this famous colour revived by Honda for the Integra Type-R recalls their first Formula One victory by Richie Ginther in Mexico 1965. The brilliant pure paint finish compliments the cars sporting styling cues perfectly and the impeccable presentation clearly reflects the cars low mileage enthusiast owned credentials. This incredible example is absolutely factory standard and unmolested, thankfully having escaped the modification and quest of ever more bhp plagued by most. Guaranteed to excite aficionados for the marque close inspection will reveal minor touch-ups to the front bumper.

INTERIOR
Peer into the cabin of this factory original example and the bold bright red Recaro front seats catch the eye instantly. These fantastic sporting seats hold the front seat occupants absolutely firm, even upon spirited cornering! Only very minor creasing to the fabric on the driver’s seat outer bolster can be seen and the contrasting rear bench in black is as new, along with all other interior upholstery and trimmings. Once positioned securely and safely, the lightweight titanium gearknob, leather bound wheel with red stitching and optional sports pedals hint towards the excitement in store. All switches, knobs and dials function correctly and the fascia is pristine. Hondas focused and near obsessive desire to save weight has resulted in the removal of sound insulation in some areas and even the transmission dampening. Factory stickers remain in the door shuts and the numbered badge 00196 still proudly on display as it left the factory. Wonderful.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Honda’s innovative Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control System (VTEC) unit optimises torque at low rpm and horsepower at high rpm. Incredibly the precision tuned naturally aspirated 1797cc engine produces 190bhp and 178Nm torque with the VTEC switchover point and resulting power peaks occurring at 8000 and 7300rpm respectively. Hondas uncompromising approach even extends to the inlet and exhaust manifold ports, hand polished to achieve a smoother, faster gas flow. This process adds an extra 25 minutes to each engine for the craftsman! Expect a top speed of 145mph and 0-62 dash in just 6.7 seconds, guaranteed with a permanent smile on your face! The five speed gearbox is light, exact and perfectly tuned to capitalise on the engine power bands and the acoustically tuned exhaust system evokes an arousing howl. An epic experience.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The distinctive 15in light alloy wheels finished in matching Championship White are in fantastic dazzling order with no damage or scuffs. Factory correct quality Bridgestone Potenza 195/55 R15 tyres have excellent tread remaining.

This Honda SS50ZK-2E model was first registered on 18th July 1977.  A family owned moped since the 80’s spending many years unused in the garage when it was then pasted down from father to son in 2001.  It was used for a further couple of years before being laid up in the garage again until 2014 where restoration of this rare pre-disc 1976 model was undertaken.  A no expense spared project with attention to detail in sourcing correct genuine parts and where this was not possible, refurbishment of the original parts, to bring this moped to show condition.  With a history file of invoices of parts sourced and work carried out by specialists this bike is a sight to behold.
