1975 Honda CB200T Cafe Racer


When I first saw this bike on eBay, I was instantly drawn to it. The picture was kind of small, and the bike definitely passed the 10 foot test. But the more I think about it, and the more I look at all of the pictures, the less impressed I am. I’m not a huge fan of the seat-sitting-on-top-of-the-subframe-rails look, and the clip-on area is quite busy, but not much is accomplished there. However, it does come pre-numbered if track days are your thing.

Interestingly enough, the seller will combo-pack this bike with a CB350 cafe racer done up in a similar manner if the buyer wants (see the last picture I posted). Overall, it is a somewhat decent cafe racer that just needs some finishing up to be, well, better than its current state. And maybe the protuding pod filters could be ditched in favor of something that looks a little less street-tracker.

    Man…who got up on the wrong side of the internet today?

    “…..and the clip-on area is quite busy, but not much is accomplished there…”

    Seriously?

    How much *LESS* cluttered could it be? Switch blocks? Nope….no bulky switch blocks on the bars. Key poking up in the way? Well….no, no I can’t see one! Factory gauges sticking up in the air? Not a bit…..Crikey! What a bodge-job…..not. The only thing I see that *IS* truly lacking on this bike would be rear-sets and perhaps the builder is short, who knows. I’d like to see mirrors, nice bar ends perhaps.
    The uni-filters stick out because the central frame member runs right between and just behind the carbs.

    Really.

    and no…I have no connection to this bike at all, just appreciation for what others put effort into.
