We had plans for the neat project bike we rustled up for the cover of Sideburn 39, but Covid-19 went and buggered them, so the bike is up for sale. This a mild custom, with some really neat components and all the quality and reliability of a stock Honda with some big-bore pep.
What is it? A 2000 Honda FTR223. It is a sexy Japan-only model, but it shares lots of parts with other Hondas so we didn't have trouble finding service parts from David Silver Spares in the UK and CMS in Netherlands (both great companies to deal with).
