Twisties on my vintage CB77 superhawk

Not crazy fast or technically perfect, just cruising along and generating a little adrenaline. This is what a '62 Superhawk likes! Me too!

1962 Honda CB77 Superhawk - Warm Up & Walkaround
I thought I'd shoot a quick walk around of my 1962 Honda CB77 Superhawk that I restored. I had just finished fabricating a brand new pair of British Amal 626 MKI concentric carbs to replace the last weak link in the restoration, the overly worn out and irreplaceable Keihin carbs. I was in the midst of re-warming up the (very cold blooded) bike, setting proper idle, etc. throughout the tuning process. The Exhaust is a real beast. The overrun at 6k rpm under load still gives me chills going through a tunnel. If you want to enjoy the sound this bike makes, you'll have to throw a pair of headphones on. Just before filming this I had finished riding her from Sacramento, CA to Seattle, WA and back along the Pacific coast, 2,500 miles in 5 days. I have to say, restoring this bike was a real challenge. Anything that could have needed replacement or repair, did. 50 years of neglect and abuse can really take it's toll on a machine. But now, it's better than every and I'm happy and proud of both the journey and end result. This is a machine you can't walk into a anywhere it buy. It's paid for with blood, sweat, and most importantly patience. More photos of the bike here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/1962_cb77_restore/
