373-Mile 1983 Honda Trail 110

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1983 Honda Trail 110 has 373 documented miles and is powered by a 105cc 4-stroke air-cooled single cylinder engine. The 4-speed manual transmission features a dual range sub-transmission for uphill climbing and has an automatic clutch. This example was acquired by the seller at an estate sale and was reportedly sold new in Seattle. The second owner purchased it in 1990 and kept it garage stored. The bike has a new air filter, battery, and spark plug, and an owner’s manual documents mileage over the years. The bike is being sold with the factory tool kit, original paperwork, an extra key, and a clean Washington title.

The red paint shows a deep luster and the body maintains its original paper stickers on the frame and engine. A small crack on the left side cover from an overtightened screw is noted and there are a few small wear marks in the red plastic, but no other damage is readily apparent. The seller elected not to touch up the paint and to leave everything in the original state as purchased from the previous owner’s estate.

Chrome and brightwork shine well with no pitting or chipping evident on the trim, skid plate, or exhaust pipe shield. The rear luggage rack appears equally nice in supplied pictures. The Trail 110 is equipped with a spare gas tank and helmet-holder just below the rack.

Rubber is said to remain soft, while shocks and springs are reported to be in good condition. Lenses are uncracked and clear while all electrics work properly as detailed in the provided video below.

A walkaround video is shown above. The 105cc 4-stroke air-cooled single cylinder engine made 7.6hp @ 7500 rpm when new and fuel economy was listed at 140mpg. Honda Trail 110’s were sold new in the U.S. up until 1986.

A 2:1 ratio gear reduction box allowed for 4 “low” gears which aided in uphill climbs. The running gear utilizes an automatic centrifugal clutch and with dual range the bike effectively has eight gears.
