Anyone ever see one of these? Was just looking at bikes on Craigslist and ran across it.



Here's the link to the ad on Craigslist:

Honda produced them in the late 70's for snipe hunting.
The pipes tended to scare the snipes off so they discontinued production.

sphetzer valve

You could limit the noise for easier snipe pursuit with proper application of some SAE sphetzer valves and silicone blinker fluid.

I like the factory option of abbreviated passenger seat for passengers with abbreviated asses.

That's why we used them here in Canada to hunt the mighty Basselope. They're hearing was rather poor.

They rode those in the Himalayas because they ran so well in thin air, great bikes.

Have fun. That engine weighs damn near as much as an entire dirtbike nowadays.
