honda motorcycles by graham forsdyke

It's "Honda Motorcycles" by Graham Forsdyke and it dates from 1967! It's a book like the one by John Thorpe, i'm sure and this book covers all models from 1960. Limited to the print date of this book, of course.

So, which models does the book cover, I hear you ask! Well, it's the Honda C100, C102, C110, C114, S65, CM90, C200, C90, C92, CB92, C95, CD150, CB160, C72, CB72, C77, CB77 and the Honda CB450. And guess what, it also includes a general guide to tuning and increasing performance for racing in chapter 22!

Help: Archive all the things!

I'm archiving for years already, but I'm just not fast enough.

 

I need your help. Please send me your list of links of HOMEPAGES.
So the small websites, maintained by a hobbyist. 

 

Today I had to look something up for a C100T owner and a Japanese website that was already in Archive.org was very incomplete and broken. THIS IS LOST INFORMATION. AND I HATE IT WHEN THIS HAPPENS.

Please, send me your bookmarks/links/lists/anything.

Last weekend of my vacation

photo 2018 10 05 21 26 40

This photo is taken a few days ago, at "Number 1" and today was a good day to go out for a spin. So I decided to test the bike on the Autobahn in Germany. I have not been on the Autobahn before on a motorbike, so this was pretty neat. No speed limit, just open the throttle and go-go-go.

Of course this is an old bastard, so I didnt go faster than 95-100 mph (150-160kmh) and frankly, I'm way too chicken to go any faster. So around Hamminkeln I decided it was time to turn around. Fuel was getting low and while it's really fun to drive fast, one also drives really fast away from home. It's amazing how slow "normal" traffic goes when I crossed the Dutch border. It's very boring, I can tell you.

Anyway, the weekend will be filled with steam engines. I will visit the Nederlands Stoommachine Museum to breathe in the scent of hot grease and steel. And maybe, just maybe, I can find a volunteer's position here on the 28th. Help me hope that it will come through. It's an hour drive towards the museum, but I think it's a really neat place.

I'll resume answering your emails from monday on again! <3
