1993 Honda Fire­blade

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - 360˚ Garage -

“I bought this off a guy who started restor­ing it but got bored. It was odd, he was into chop­pers and cer­tainly wasn’t your typ­i­cal ’Blade owner. It cost £4000, but most of the work had been com­pleted and as it was run­ning on three I sus­pected it wasn’t a ma­jor is­sue. In the end it turned out it was just a spark­plug that had failed, so it was a great buy. It’s a fab­u­lous bike to ride, very light, com­fort­able and fast. Back in the day I bought a GSX-R750 in­stead of a Blade, some­thing I’ve al­ways re­gret­ted.”

First gen ’Blade an­other item high on the list
