News Bulletin: No 11, February 2019

Welcome to the latest issue of The David Silver Honda Collection News Bulletins. Further new models added to the Collection!

1989 XL600V-H Transalp – a very nice condition low-mileage UK model in original specification.

- 1981 CM200T – an original UK model kindly donated to the museum by Richard & Brian Bench.

These new additions take our collection display to almost 200 classic Honda models, up from 150 when we first opened in July 2016!. The display ranges from the very first Honda model, a 1948   A-type to the 1992 CBR900RR Fireblade and the 1992 oval-piston NR-750.

A full list of all models on display can be found on our museum website. The collection will continue to grow and we are currently seeking original early UK examples of: RC30; NS400R and GL1500 Gold Wing.

2019 Special Event… 50th Anniversary of the start of the SOHC Fours! – Saturday 28 September

On the back of our successful CB750 50th Anniversary Day last September we are pleased to announce our plans for a similar day in 2019 to celebrate all SOHC 4-cylinder Honda’s.

With the first of the SOHC Fours, the CB750, on sale from 1969 the design concept was quickly followed with models such as the: CB500; CB350; CB400F and the CB550 and CB650 as well as the later CB750F Super Sports models. This worldwide successful Honda range of  SOHC Fours set the bench mark for many others to follow and also led the way into the 1980s Honda DOHC Fours.

On Saturday 28 September we will celebrate 50 years from the start of this amazing Honda motorcycle story enjoying the models many of us owned and enjoyed and today find compelling to restore and continue to enjoy as an investment!      

Over 100 SOHC Honda Fours will be expected and the day will feature a contest for Best in Class with 10 awards, judged by an expert panel; Live 1970s rock-band music; Free entry to the museum; Hot/Cold Refreshments; Pub-style Honda Quiz! and much more!

The event is open to all, FREE to attend and FREE to enter in the Best in Class Contest with your Honda SOHC Four. Entry details soon to be available on our museum website.
