    Here's a trio of Honda 90's from '64 &'65 from my herd. In this group are all three variations in which the "Iron Head" 90's were marketed. Actual cc's was 87 and they were also referred to as push rod motors which had OHV's.
    First in line is my black 1965 CA200 followed by the blue 1964 CM90 and bringing up the rear is one of my red 1965 CT200’s.

    Sorry for the delay, I have 5 years to look at this thred. Yes it is the model CS 92 (s for the scrambler). I think this model was only for the Japanese market. Probably a sailor brought it to Greece in 1965, I have it since 1993.

    From the Zundapp thread. A brand new Honda CB450 owned by a buddy of my dads...heading out on the autobahn for one of it's first rides.
    Looks like the plastic is still on the seat.

    As old as I'm getting to be, I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever own a Black Bomber before I shuffle off this mortal coil. Otherwise, I've owned the bikes I dreamt of owning.

    I was at the Barber Museum last week, on display was a 64 Honda CB77 Superhawk, beautifully restored. Was great to see a classic so up close to take in all the details as if it were on the showroom floor at Mike's Cycle in Appleton back in the day. Other displays showed a sand-cast 69 CB750 four, the engine serial number was something like CB750E-1001001. Funny how that CB750 back in 69 looked so raw and powerful, not at all like the 78 CB750 I bought new years later. A good bike, but then it was ponderous and bulky.

    Allen Millyard created a cool little Honda V-twin 180 that was on display as well. Pretty little bike that makes a great sound!

    I figured I will toss up a picture of a '60's Honda that I sold this summer to a private collection in Minneapolis.
    It's a 1967 Honda P50. Had the owners and shop manual as well. I'm glad I owned it while I did, and I know I will never have another of them.

    I miss it a bit though, but put the money towards my dream bike- a '69 CB750 sand cast I bought the following day.

    I watched one of these get uncrated recently, and it was all I could do to keep from buying it on the spot.

    Robert Pirsig's Honda Superhawk is in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. His book inspired me and thousands of other riders to pack up our motorcycles and get on the road. I wish he was alive to see this, but at least his widow, Wendy, does.
    I began touring in 1973, and the questions he pondered while riding along were questions that mattered to me at the time. He was also deeply involved with the Zen Center in Minneapolis at that time.
    My first touring bike was a 66 Honda Superhawk. I did not learn that Pirsig also rode a Superhawk on his tour until many years later.

    Not sure if I’ve posted this before, nasty old photo of me in 1966 on my ‘65 CB77 305 Superhawk.

    Pipes had been changed to aftermarket high pipes, I actually took it off-road. 9AAD2CCF-D690-45D1-A1A5-61C8970DA6B9.jpeg
