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:

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.

Motorcycle Briefcase made by Honda!!!
I think Tony Stark has one of these as well.
mykarz: "...those scooters actually came as an optional accessory with i
think it was a civic or accord in like 82-83. They were built to
specifically fit in the trunk of that car, which is pretty cool in my
opinion. Only however many cars that were sold in that time span that
had those scooters added, are how many of those that exist. Its a super
rare little scooter, so you're lucky to see one."
