Looking for a Clean Small Vintage Honda

Might as well see if anybody here near Baltimore has something.

I want a nice small clean vintage Honda I can use for local short hops and maybe my wife can learn to ride and get her MC license. She is really small, like 105 lbs and 5' tall.

I have the 919 for more full-bodied fun. But would like something I can just hop on for around town fun.

So far, candidates include mid-sixties super hawks, S65, and S90. I found a nice 74 CB200T I might go for. A 350 might be O.K but nothing bigger.

If you have something nice and clean for no more than around $2K (could go higher for something exceptional) within about 5 hours from Baltimore, please shoot me a PM.

Gotta have a new (old) toy

400 CBX ?

You might want to consider the baby CBX of the 80s. A 400 4 that It think was lighter than the CB350 and much better chassis. Not many were made, but a jewel of a bike. I was going to get my wife one but suddenly babies started happening. (She still loves being on the back of the 919 just like the old times on the 73 CB750 that is still fast asleep in the garage.

I think there is a couple still around the Denver Metro area on The Graig's List.

I picked up a nice clean little '76 cb200t. Looks just like the one in this picture:
VintageBike.co.uk - Picture of 1976 Honda CB200T

I'll post up an actual pic when it stops raining and I get around to taking some pics.

It's pretty clean, not perfect, around 6K miles. If anybody has straight headlight brackets, I need some. Mine are slightly bent.

The clutch slips a little if you shift at redline. Might have had some energy conserving oil at some point. I found original new clutch parts at Bike Bandit. A little pricey but I'll use OEM parts where I can. Fun little bike.

Feels like it's going fast when it's not. Opposite of the 919.

I would recommend: either a modern, electric start reliable scooter, or, my 1984 CT110 - a Honda Trail! No clutch, reliable, and it is earning value over time. This is the last generation of a popular machine. (Still make them in Australia!) .
