This rare old 1980 Honda XL185S Enduro bike has recently been imported from Colorado North America where it has spent all its life. The air is thin, the climate & atmospheric conditions are far nicer than we struggle on with here in the UK & have helped this old girl keep her looks.

PLEASE CHECKOUT THE LARGE PHOTO’s…. As you can see this bike is a good way off complete missing:- Mirrors, Heat shield off the exhaust header pipe & Sprocket cover.

Other short comings inc:- The clutch lever is broken, brake lever is bent, tail light is broken, seat cover is perished & the engine is seized – it just won’t budge.

BUT ENOUGH OF ALL THIS NEGATIVITY !!!......Please have a good look at the pictures because this bike has a lot to offer – what is there is very nice & original.

Wheels are true with nice chrome rims, good hubs & brake plates. Forks & yokes are straight with good chrome. Head light & bracket are good as are the clocks. Tank has some graphics peeling but is dent free & squeaky clean inside. Carburetor is free sliding off the twist grip. Frame & swing arm look straight & are very solid. Seat base is very good as are the side panels.

The engine is cosmetically quite clean for the nature of the beast but as I said before is seized solid.

This is your chance to own this fantastic little piece of Honda Enduro motorcycling history. The bike is going to make such a rewarding restoration – something you can really get your teeth into.

We are listing this bike as a trade clearance item with a realistically low starting price &. NO RESERVE.

Please call NEIL WILSON or MARK RUSHTON on 01782 861100 ext 241 or 244 who will be more than happy to answer any questions you have, and can facilitate viewing of this bike.

General Information

The bike is currently unregistered. The registration process is reasonably uncomplicated.

We have only got the certificates from Customs & Excise to prove we have paid VAT & duty, these will be provided with the bike with the official V55/5 forms for 1st registration application.


1. You need to get the bike MOT’d.

2. You need to prove the year of manufacture. Phone North Leicester Motorcycles on 01530 263381 with the frame & engine Numbers, for a small fee they will send you a letter confirming the age. Alternatively phone the UK importer customer services with the frame & engine Numbers, again for a small fee they will send you a letter confirming the age.

3. You need to have valid insurance on the bike. You can insure it on the chassis number.

4. Take all this paper work to your local VRO (vehicle registration office), who will charge you £55 for the 1st registration & the current amount for the road tax.

5. The VRO will give you a tax disc with your age related registration number.
