CFW 43C Honda 90cc Moped

CFW 43C - 1965 Honda C 200

Honda Motors started developing a 50cc moped in 1956, launched in 1958 as the Cub / Super Cub model, a range which has remained in production ever since.

The 87 cc Pushrod Honda C 200 model was added to the range in 1964 and produced until 1967. An overhead-valve engine of 86.7cc produces 6.5bhp at 8,000rpm.

The C 200's barrel and head were made of cast iron rather than the light alloy used for the 50cc models. Other features include a pressed steel spine frame with swinging-arm rear suspension and leading-link front fork.

This moped was first registered in April 1965 and its last owner was Mr Alan Robinson of Gainsborough.

CFW43CA Museum resident for many years, it is currently undergoing a re-build.
