have for sale my much loved NC30 in great mechanical condition and MOT until 22 March 2019.  The only advisory being slightly loose chain which have now adjusted.
I bought this bike in December 2011 and did quite lot of work to get it back on the road, make it reliable and fit for regular use.  It's Japanese import with km speedo and mph overlay. 
MOT test recorded km is:
June 2009 27127June 2010 32134February 2012 35459January 2013 43071March 2014 43525March 2015 44263March 2016 44432March 2017 44515March 2018 44561
Current recorded 44,571km (27,695 miles) (may increase slightly)
You can see that when put the bike back on the road in 2012 used it lot to commute to London (from Ipswich) but have only ridden 1000k (600 miles) since 2014.  So unfortunately it's time for the bike to go.
Last year had the carburettors professionally serviced and now it starts and runs perfectly.  It'll pull to the red line in top gear and everything electric works as it should.  The brakes were rebuilt in 2012 because all calipers and the front master cylinder had problems but now they're powerful and progressive.  
The bike has been garaged whilst have owned it.  The paint is not great and there are few cosmetic issues but this is 27 year old bike.  believe all the body parts are original and could be restored if wanted.
The battery is good, for the pictures taken on 10/5/18 it started first push of the button after standing since the MOT was done in March.  faulty regulator was replaced couple of years ago and now it charges fine.  Both tyres are in good condition.  The bike will run out of ground clearance before it slides.  There are keys and the V5 is with the bike.  
One slight mechanical problem is that when it's really hot the clutch can drag little, always shift into neutral as roll to stop, say at traffic lights, otherwise the bike does tend to creep forward. This only happens when it's really hot and doesn't worry me so never got set of replacement clutch plates. Gear driven cams means that there's no chain or belt to worry about, allowing the 14,500 rev limit with excellent power for 1980's 400cc stroke  
The bike is great fun to ride and has plenty of performance. If you're looking at this ad you probably know how ahead of its time the NC series was when Honda introduced it for the Japanese market.  The slipper clutch it has was only for race bikes back in 1988!
These are appreciating classics but now I've decided it's time for the bike to go.  have few spares available for separate negotiation if wanted
