This 1965 Honda CT200 is a refurbished example which has been repainted in its original yellow and fitted with a new replacement 125cc Lifan single-cylinder engine, a four-speed manual transmission, modern controls, a 12-volt electrical system, LED lighting, and other modifications. The bike was acquired by the seller in September 2019, reportedly from its second owner in Oregon who performed the majority of the work. This CT200 is offered with engine paperwork and a clean Oregon title in the seller’s name.
