Honda CL description

My 1965 Honda CL 72 250cc Street Scrambler is a very collectible version of this famous model produced between 1962-1965. It has the straight-through exhaust system, the small brake drums and the shorter rear fender. This model is very desirable as it was the last of the 250s with the above mentioned items. I also have the internal baffle for each pipe that go with the bike.

As the photos show it is in pristine condition, has new tires, brakes, chain and sprockets, wheel bearings, brake cables, throttle cable, speedometer and cable, fuel petcock rebuilt, clutch rebuilt, engine rebuilt, transmission rebuilt, new fork seals, air filters, new battery, valves lashed, timing set, carbs synced and rebuilt along with anything that need replacement or chroming. I did not ride this bike until it was in "as new condition", fully serviced and roadworthy.

The paint is excellent as the photos show, there are three very small dents on the right side of the gas tank noticeable only in certain light. All fasteners, hardware, electrical and running gear are correct for this bike. 

Everything on the bike works, it runs and shifts as it should and of course has that great scrambler sound! I drove it over 150 miles before I put it on display in my home. I fueled it today, turned on the gas valve, choked it and it started on the second kick. Whether you plan to show this bike, drive it around the neighborhood or on the street it is sure to get attention. 

This is one of the nicest examples of this vintage scrambler and will only go up in value. I am downsizing my home so I am selling my collection of bikes and cars. This bike will make for fun conversation wherever is is ridden or shown.

I have a clear title in hand, and I can assist with shipping and storage for up to a month once the bike is paid. Shipping costs are the buyers expense. The bike is sold as is with no warranty and you are welcome to inspect it anytime during the auction.

I will not accept any bids from buyers with less then 10 transactions in their history or any negative feedback unless they call me first before bidding and we discuss their situation. 

This is a "no reserve" auction so the highest bidder will own this beautiful piece of motorcycle history. 

Call Arnie at 651-261-5669 with any questions and thank you for looking.

Honda CBR250R top speed run

Sun, 24 Apr 2011 00:00:00 -0700

The Cope Law states that: the capacity of the bike you're riding is inversely proportional to your chances of a crash. Never was it more true than on the launch of Honda's CBR125R and CBR250R where a handful of UK journos were riding elbow to elbow for a couple of hours, with laughter flowing from everyone's lid as we all took turns to back in to roundabouts, burnout through town and wheelie from the lights.. This video shows me chasing Trevor Franklin of MCN fame on a top speed run.

Honda And Repsol Celebrate 20 Years Together

Mon, 10 Feb 2014 00:00:00 -0800

If we were to play a game of word association, the mention of “Repsol” would automatically trigger “Honda” from the audience, or at least anyone who pays the slightest bit of attention to Grand Prix racing. That’s because the two companies have achieved much success in this, their 20th year as partners. The longest running partnership between sponsor and manufacturer in the history of the Motorcycle World Championship, Repsol Honda has won 10 World titles, 124 race wins and 338 podiums in 500cc and MotoGP.

If you’re like us, you never get enough Isle of Man videos. While the men and machines that fly around the course are nothing short of mesmerizing, let’s take a moment and talk about a crucial aspect of any race: the tires. In this Honda-supplied video, Dunlop technicians, along with 21-time TT winner, John McGuiness, talk about the challenges the Isle throws at tires.
