RACING HONDA 305 CL77 SCRAMBLER BACK IN THE 60s (CL72, CB77)

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.
