Vintage Honda.

I finally started to scan the old photos I found at my fathers home, one shoe box down and way to many to go.  I still haven't found the photo of my father on a bike, but this photo was taken around September 1965.  It shows a cousin astride what I believe is a CB160.  I wish it was still in the family and in the same shape, but wishing don't make it so...

As I find them I will post them.

That looks like an enlarged version of the Honda 50 I use to borrow. It has the same 60's toaster tank with the Honda emblem. Your cousin's haircut is vintage 60's too. Looking forward to more photos!

Thanks for stopping by Mike. It's a good looking bike, I hope I find a few more old photos. GAW

I wished that I had old photos, but I had my bikes in a time where I didn't take many photos, even though I had cameras sitting at home. It was expensive to develop prints back then, nearly .40c per print when wages were not even $2./per hour

can't wait for you to find more

Hey Bob, Still here. Unfortunately just haven't had anything worth saying... I'm quite the reader and thinker, but can be rather lazy in the writing. Do hold your breath waiting for a new post, there will be one, just can't tell you when...

Thanks for checking on me.
