The Honda CL72 (250) Scrambler, introduced in 1962, launched a new category of dual-purpose motorcycle. It had a sturdy cradle frame, increased ground clearance, upswept Exhaust, and larger wheels.
The first real test for the Scrambler came in March 1962 when Dave Ekins, a pioneering off-road racer and Bill Robertson, a Honda dealer, set the 1000 mile Tijuana-to-La Paz, Mexico record riding Honda CL72 Scramblers.
It wasn't long before Scramblers were being modified for racing. Aftermarket race parts were soon available.
While maybe not the fastest of race bikes, the Honda Scrambler did make its mark, all while being one of the best looking and sounding bikes on the track.
Very rare 1966 Honda 305 Scrambler

Doug Parran. I wish Honda still made classic motorcycles like this!
Apparently a lot of others do, too, judging from the number of viewers.

1965 Honda CL72 250 Scrambler CL72.MOV
This was taken in Illinois in October of 2011. You know the story... Had
one just like it in high school back in California in the late 60's that I
painted a rattle can Candy Apple Red.
This was owned by a guy in Indianapolis, Indiana who was drafted, went to
Vietnam and was killed in action. His dad wanted to keep his connection to
his son so sold it and gave it away several time over the years with the
understanding that he would have the first right of refusal when it was
time to sell. About 2000, at age 81, he was ready to move on and offered
through the local VJMC chapter to give it away.
I went to look at it and took him up on the offer. It was in pieces, but
was about 90% complete. This is the speedo from this bike and I believe
milieage may be original. Lots of collecting, horse trading, several reads
of Bill Silver's restoration guide and several years later, it was running.
It is a 1965 and I went to great lengths to keep every piece original.

!967 unrestored Dream with new solo seat. Feels a little better on my rear.
The stock seat is kind of narrow and hurts before long.
How To Rebuild a Motorcycle Shock (Dirt Bike Rear Shock Rebuild Video)
http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com This video will show you how to rebuild
the rear shock on your motorcycle or ATV. We show you how to change the
shock seal and oil inside the shock. Your Motorcycle shock needs to be
serviced on a regular basis, and we make it easy to do. The process is the
same for many ATV shocks and street bike shocks. Rocky Mountain ATV/MC
stocks the tools and parts you need to rebuild your motorcycle suspension
(forks and shock). In this video we rebuild a Kayaba Rear Shock but we also
demonstrate how to disassemble a Showa Shock as well. After performing this
rear suspension service you will need to fill the shock bladder with
nitrogen and this can be done by almost any local shop for a minimal fee.
Visit our website to see all the parts and accessories we carry for your
dirt bike, street bike, atv or side by side at Rocky Mountain ATV.com!

1965 Honda CB77 Superhawk
My 1965 CB77. Might be the most beautiful thing next to Sarah Palin. Runs
perfect and handles like a Superhawk should. And no its not for sale.
Filmed with my Canon 5d mark ii with a 50mm lens.
2011 Custom Honda Shadow V-Twin RS750 Scrambler & Tracker - J&P Cycles
Watch as we talk with Denny Berg, chief fabricator at Cobra's Special
Projects Division about the two very different looks he achieved while
customizing the Honda Shadow V-Twin RS750. Both remind us of Honda's glory
days. The first in the style of the CL77 Scrambler 305 from the 1960's
while the second is a street-tracker reminiscent of the 1980s factory
flat-track bikes riden by Ricky Graham and Bubba Shobert.
