Up for auction is the opportunity of a lifetime, the missing "Works" Honda CB200 ISDT Special has been found.
Believed lost since 1971 "The Beast" has re appeared, believed smuggled into Aussie by a Russian mail order Bride. (I will not reveal details due to the fact it might incriminate me.)
The bike was rumored to be secrertly developed by HRC as the ultimate weapon to win the 1971 ISDT, no expense spared. After rigorous testing by works test rider Hiro Nakajap , whose father was a short sighted Kamakazi pilot (yes he missed) Hiro and the Works machine mysteriously dissapeared and Honda abandoned their intended onslaught of 1971 Enduro Glory.
It believed that the bike was secured by the Russians in order to replace the ageing 1945 Ural side valver which was about to be Supercharged. Test rider Comrade Starlinski was assigned the task of evaluating "The Beast". After reporting back to the KGB that is would mercilisly crush all known opposition "The Beast" was moth balled (for Glasnost purposes) until the World could cope with such a Weapon.
"The Beast" has such advanced innovations as single rear engine mount, designed to flex the engine and continually change the centre of gravity for rider countersteering techniques. Air cleaners have been removed to accomodate the 2 proposed under seat Superchargers, factory alloy number plates with subliminal numbers are examples of the pain staking care and thought taken to create "The Beast". Will it run, wont it run? Who cares when you have such a wild"Beast"?
I contacted the major Auction Houses but they deemed such a rare bike a major security risk. Therefore I have decided to open the bidding to the World on Evilbay, let the masses decide the value of "The Beast" (offers over 100K before end of Auction NOT CONSIDERED)
Be warned if you are the winning bidder you may need to upgrade your security for such a famous treasure.
Miniumum start bid should be 150K I know, but lets make it a dollar, the World needs to have a chance to own this Masterpiece of Engineering.
I know you are excited and eager to view this rare beauty, but be patient my friends, i will up load World release pics for you and the Paparazi when security permits.

BREAKING NEWS: Throught the freedom of information act more hase been learnt from KGB files regarding the style of the stunning colour scheme. Designed by Fashion Hairdresser Ivan Sukemorf "my brief was to utilise existing stocks of Black paint left over from T45 Tanks. With this design constraint I decided to contast with Baltic Blue and add my own personal touch of dusty Pink on the shock bolts, I think you will agree the result is amazing" Unfortunately Ivan was shipped of the Gulag 13 shortly afterwards. Gotta go now, a Lada Niva with 4 BIG guys has just pulled up in the driveway, stay tuned ...

UPDATE: Sorry but this report may have a few typos as it is a little hard typing with a broken hand. My "visitors" have advised me it may be a good idea to tone down the Ruski rhetoric down a little. I am not sure who they were but when they left in the Lada it had a personalised number plate "STASI" and the were pumping Boney M's classic 'Rasputin' to the max on the mono 8 track. Further comments may be somewhat restrained. Photos tomorrow (if not censored)

Wonderful News! Through my relentless persistance, I have obtained a picture of Soviet development manager Igor Jerkorf from my new bride Olga from the Volga (also known as Vulgar Olga.) which I am about to post. The photo was believed to be taken after his first test ride in Siberia, the results of the incredible power of 'The Beast' are obvious.

Double Wonderful News! NAKAJAP HAS BEEN FOUND! - I got the munchies and tottled down to my local Sushi Bar. The elderly owner had heard about 'The Beast' from social media, and told me he knows Nakajap personally. It appears that 'Nakkers' (as he is known to his pals) defected from Honda to Yamaha because he realised he could never surpass the design of the incredible 'Beast'. Knakkers claim to fame at Yamaha included development of the TX 750 engine, XV starter motors and the revolutionary YZ Boost bottles. He has now been appointed quality contol manager for Chinese pit bikes, and suggested the possibility of de tuned "Beast Replicas" for Side car work. Knakkers has forwarded a photo of himself astride "The Beast" in the pits after winning the Nagasaki "Flat Track". I believe this to be genuine due to the lack of Soviet insignia on the fuel tank. Thanks Nakkers and good luck with the Chinese venture.

Upon close examination it appears that the build date of "The Beast" is actually '72 which would put Honda's planned whitewash of '71 into some doubt. Some may view this as a negative but personally I feel that it is another example of Hondas faith in "the Beast" that they felt the machine so advanced it was plated for the following year. Additionally the prefix XL stands for "Xtra Luxury". The original tachometer is also included in the sale, it was removed as the miserly 10, 000 redline was deemed insufficent.

More has been learnt about the fate of Test Pilot Igor Jerkorf. It the quest for more power, the Rusky 50 octane Kero- Ethanol blend was too weak. Surplus Rocket fuel left behind by the Germans in WW2 was tried and initial results looked promising. Problem was the main jets could not been enlarged enough for conventional carbs, so direct injection (gravity feed from a jam tin) was tried. Throttle control was achieved by means of the ON-OFF kill switch. Igor's next Test ride was more eventful. After the last clutchless flat shift into top gear the countershaft sprocket teeth disintergrated, taking out the sprocket cover, front engine plate and distorting the custom headers to such an extent only one fitted. The results are still apparent today. Surprisingly Igor rather enjoyed the over handlebar flight and was drafted into the fledgling ill funded Sputnic Rocket program. Cosmonaut Jerkorf was last seen heading out beyond our Galaxy. His last communication with Mission Control spoke of his love of "The Beast" which gave his large family some closure. The Beatles "Back in the USSR" was heard playing softly in the background. Vale Igor.

Whatever happened to Ivan Sukemorf? Unfortunately Ivan is still imprisioned in Gulag 13. The Kremlin has issued orders of no release until his design tastes have been "re educated". Comisar Voltan stated "Sukemorf refuses to wear the battleship grey prision garb, preffering his high heeled boots and dusty pink lipstick" (made famous by "The Beast".)
You may be surprised to hear that the "The Beast" has also been used as an Aggie bike on the communal prison farm. The huge horsepwer was an asset, providing unmatched trench digging, but straight line stability was a major issue. He rather enjoyed the huge roost provided whilst holding the reigns. It seems that Sukemorf was the only inmate who could control "The Beast" with his soft hands and delicate touch. He is immensly popular with fellow inmates because of this talent.

After some coaxing (and copious amount of home brew) the lovely Olga has taken time off from potato picking and volunteered to pose with "The Beast" for a farewell pic. She affectionately calls him "My Big Boy" and undoubtably will miss him. I will endeavour to up load said pic. this evening providing I can find one without an 'R' rating
"The Beast" has touched many lives, if not for "Big Boy" our lives may have been less worthwhile. Just ask Nakajap now enjoying his compulsory stay in Nanjing motorcycle factory, Jerkorf now orbiting the planet Clair in the Nebula galaxy, and the wonderful Sukemorf spreading the warmth in Gulag 13. One can only wonder what this marvellous machine has in store for it's new custodian.
I have just recieved a very puzzling text " you will soon be kissing AK47 Comrade" Is that a Rusky Rapper? Gotta go now, that pesky Lada Niva has just pulled up in the drive again ....
