HONDA PROJECT

Real Classic - - Real Classic - Gra­ham York, mem­ber

My Honda 400/4 has an in­ter­est­ing story. I bought it when my youngest daugh­ter was four, but it suf­fered the nor­mal prob­lem of camshaft bear­ings and the en­gine went away for re­pair. Things moved on for me and the bike was left in the fam­ily lock-up un­til last year when a friend fit­ted a re­place­ment en­gine – the mo­tor­bike shop who had the orig­i­nal one was long gone.

I got the bike brought over to France last sum­mer, and have just got it French reg­is­tered and in­sured. I now need to get it back to orig­i­nal con­di­tion and so am look­ing for any in­for­ma­tion on the Mocheck Har­rier, which was based on the Honda 400/4 F1 with Yoshimura tun­ing. As my daugh­ter was 40 this year it has been 37 years since the bike saw light of day, but it’s not too bad con­sid­er­ing. I must have had a job lot of red paint at some stage! I will keep you posted on the Honda’s progress.
