The first one is my mini trail. First bike I rode (not this exact one) as a kid. My grandfather had 2 on his farm. 100% original on original tyres. The story is that this one belonged to Claerhout but I don't have any proof.

The second one is the first bike my dad bought for @Noneking when we were kids and it's still in my garage. It needs full resto

Third one is my R50/2 that I stupidly sold for peanuts to fund racing. Well maybe not so stupid then  :lol8:


.....AND THAT I STUPIDLY DIDN'T BUY WHEN IT WENT FOR PEANUTS  :dousing:

Not rare or collectable, but I'm busy restoring a 1982 Honda XR 200R

I disagree - I Think the 200R is becoming both rare and very collectable. In the right condition of course. The farm bike thumper thats been painted by the kids and seen 43 different back seats is not. An original version remains my favorite bike ever.

Thank you for the kind words  :thumleft: Mine is original and "un-butchered". I was able to find the original missing parts like the toolbag and sidestand. The only thing that is not original is that the bike got a roadworthy kit on and is registered on the road, but the wiring looks like a "ontploffing in 'n matras fabriek".

The project is standing a bit still at the moment, but here is a link to my thread

Yip, that's the one! See how similar the exhaust and handlebars are to your Honda - hence my question.

Here's my '98 Honda Valkyrie flat6 1500.
Maybe not a collectors bike, but hard to come by in SA.

Hey Tony, sorry the bike is stashed in a garage up the street from us, and I do not have a photo here.

There is a link somewhere, where I did post a photo of this bike on Wilddogs.

Can anyone help?
