It's not a car but I thought it might fit in this section still and no it's not a lawnmower :) I got this in trade for a pellet stove I fixed up and the guy gave me a full face helmet and $150! I made out like a bandit.

It's a 1982 Honda CM200t Twinstar. Has only 4600 miles.

I love those bikes. 8)

Needs shorter handlebars and lose the back rest. Then it's perfect. :tu: :mrgreen:

Yeah the bars are a bit long but I kinda like the sissy bar though. I haven't seen another one of these with it through my searches of google images and such. But thanks yeah it's nice little bike. :)

I've grown up riding dirt bikes so these handle bars make me feel unbalanced. I don't know if I want that short though. But thats a nice bike.

Nice 200! A set of lower bars will go on without changing the cables. Here is a CM185 I had set up the way I liked it. Bars were around $20.

Ok I lied. While cleaning up the back yard I moved my 84' Honda ATC125 3-wheeler. I need to clean out the fuel lines on that cause I can't get it to start consistantly. Here's the only picture I have of it right now. It's fun to drive around camping but no suspension does make for some hairy 2 wheel situations.

So the Bike is my 2nd Honda :)

You're quite modest in your bike choice! lol
Those things here don't sell for anything less €10000!!!
Interesting fact; the local police had them back in the 70s

3 Wheeler? man those things can be very unsafe, but they are getting harder to find and i believe they will be a collectors item soon. nice bike btw :tu:
