Got something new...NC21!

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I am 46 years old, from Germany and ride usually a RC24 from 1989. I also drive now a Honda NC21 (and NC23). Finest thing from Japan in 1986! 34000km + excellent condition. I just love the sound of the gear driven cams.

Congrats

 

the NC21 is a hoot in the tight twisty roads and tough to find a better sound than those gear driven cams 

 

ive got the same bike paint and all

 

enjoy

My buddy bought this last March from a dealer-guy with a big van and long trailer just full of exxxotic 400's lately shipped from England.  Buddy got this NC super-cheap, since we don't know if it will run or not and no title, unfortunately.

i hope to get  it on the road for a couple test rides this summer.......but i have SO many other projects. 😪

 

He also got his hands on these two sweethearts from a selection of late-80's CBR and VFR 400's.

He's ridden the CBR a couple times but not the VFR, which isn't running at its best.

He really wanted this clean NC35 too but he was running short of $$$$, having bought a record 3 bikes in one day !

@squirrelman: Great collection! Especially the colours of your 400ccm-bikes are pretty much nicer than my NC21-grey/white and NC23-black ones.

Today I cleaned up my chain the very first time and found out: it is probably the first-original-Honda with japanese signs. So now I'm pretty sure the 34.000km are real and not 134.000 

😊 So the bike has a average usage of only 1000km/year on the road. I dismounted the main fairing for keeping it clean, safe and unbroken. So service is more easier too. Installed 2x EBC MD1006 front brake discs.
