MOTORRAD-Kultbike: Honda CB 72
Vor gut 50 Jahren machte Honda mit der CB 72 Supersport den zaghaften
europäischen Herstellern mächtig Beine. Den ganzen Bericht gibt es in
MOTORRAD Heft 4, das am 31.01.2014 erscheint.
1964 Honda C72 Dream Air Filter Fix
Getting my old Honda Dream back on the road - Decided to take the air
filter out which I've never done since I started riding her around 1983.
Ait filter, Oil filter clean , Fresh Oil , and the Fuel Tap has been an
issue for about 6 years so gave that another go with parts from a 305
spares bike I've got and finally it seems to seal , but I still need to
order new tap seals at some stage. - bikes had 15,000 miles when my brother
bought her for $100 in 1979 - Engine was dismantled but was perfect - was
original black at that stage - forks needed straightening - was rebuilt
in 1980 by my father as a cheap commute bike for my brother and myself and
not as a restoration hence the battery and taillight mods - Rear struts
modified to allow oil refill. Stopped riding as commute bike around 86 -
Now has 42,000 miles - oil changed every 1000 miles as we were advised
when we bought it that big end normally went around 40,000 miles on these
bikes. Thinking I'll get club permit plates so I can give the old girl 1
last 1000 miles run before storing away for my son to treasure.

Burt Munro's 1920 Indian Scout
This is the 1920 Indian Scout built and driven by Burt Munro. Jay Leno on
commentary. Three times during the '60's it set the World's fastest flying
mile record for motorcycles under 1000cc at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
This is not the reproduction used in the "The World's Fastest Indian"
starring Anthony Hopkins, but the actual bike that set the record.
Fortunately this is the second year of the Concours d'Elegance to feature
motorcycles on the green. This year they featured the salt flat racers and
their contribution to Hot Rodding. I was very lucky to see and hear this
amazing piece of history.
For more information about Burt Munro, visit
Or buy "The World's Fastest Indian" because it's a true story. It's one of
my favorites, and surely will not disappoint any gear head. Anthony's
perfectly cast for the role.
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.

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:
