It says HONDA on the engine.

But more pics are a must if the bike has to be identified.

Thats all there is to the bike, no tank, no side panels.

I am thinking its the Honda CB 92 super Sports which had a 125cc engine. Was called the Honda Benly, google throws up lot of images. The owner dosent know what it is cant even say it off the papers, old chap so probably thinking he cant read the matter.

my wild guess is that this is the bike of the 1960s and 1970s same as the time when around 2000 suzuki 70 and80cc bikes were imported to AP, will post the pics soon, i will get the exact details and the pictures soon, he still preserved them, should give you a good idea too!

Is it a twin carb or twin piston?

I remember seeing a 70's 2 piston, 2 stroke honda with one of these mechanic guy....the guy has a passion of picking of old bikes and getting them back to working condition, and he's tinkerer by profession...

Its CB125 having single cylender seen many in Mumbai, restore if you can worth and far better perfomance than our 150's.
Just see its having twin intake and outlet valves.
Other models are available in twin cylenders at 125 cc.

Spitfire can you please post the engine number? And if possible a pic of the front end?

It looks like a twin cylinder, single carb engine.

Can restore it, cant get a move on with the sunbeam S7 better off trying to restore this one first.

Will check on the engine, the owner is a grumpy old guy dosent let me meddle with her too much.

What did you mean by "If you dont PM me ill buy this"? You interested in getting this bike?

The other one is a bullet, forget about it. No other bikes thats all.

Thanks guys for the replies.
