When I got back into motorcycling, I started with a PC800. I really liked it and would be riding it today except my knees couldn't take the bending needed for the fixed seating position. Otherwise very comfortable, very civilized, very convenient. And it did draw attention, not quite as much as the RE I purchased later but usually questions every third time I parked.Honda had their motorcycle design group provide the powertrain and suspension and their new automotive group in Torrance provide the body and ergonomics. It was intended for commuters in business suits. It almost worked but times weren't right as SUVs emerged to rule the roads.The PC800 demonstrated once again that Honda could design and build any damn thing they wanted to in spite of the naysayers. An amazing company that has changed the motorcycling world for the better.
Fay and I had a big time in Colorado with our PC800.That day was around Leadville and down to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.It was a nice, maintenance free, good handling, standard transmission bike which ran exactly the same, thanks to the Honda CV carburetors, whether it was at 5200 feet in Denver, 7500 feet in Idaho Springs, or 14,200 feet at the top of Mt. Evans. Some fuel injected bikes wonít even compensate for all that altitude ÖCollectors like them! Lannis
Nice looking in red! They are high dollar when they come available, more than they sold for when new in many cases. How did they do riding two up with gear?
Fay and I are pretty long legged when you add up all four legs, and we like lots of room. The PC800 had lots of room, plenty of power, and the suspension hauled our 400 pounds total along very well on those Rocky Mountain roads.I checked the oil, tire pressure, and put gas in it and that was all I ever did to it. It had a belt drive, the nice 800cc V-twin engine which was smooth, quiet, and had plenty of power to pull us both up those long hills.If you wanted a unique, collector touring bike that will attract attention wherever you go, and Guzzi-level attention at that, these things are very ride-able, easy-to-live-with ones.Lannis
Pretty sure every other PC800 ever made had shaft drive...
"Who's that GEEZER on a red PC800 Honda appliance scooter?!?"
He's a gray-bearded old wampus, for sure ... but the bad news is that he's the same age as YOU are! And it's NOT an appliance, it's a piece of quality Honda furniture ....Lannis
Largest displacement scooter, ever.Larry
