When the price of gasoline rose to 60 cents a gallon back in 1976, Honda figured it had a whole new market.

When I was a young boy, my father introduced me to the joys of motorcycling. Dad would take my brother and me on leisurely rides in the country aboard his Honda CB750 Four. In the late 1970s, I was too young to know or care about the significance of the CB750, that its transverse, in-line four cylinder... Read more »
