Honda GB500

Posted on January 27, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

In the late ’80’s, Honda experimented with a number of very unusual motorcycles. The GB500 was one of them. It took its style from the old cafe racers – which is why i like it so much. One of the best things to come out of the 80’s in my humble opinion (and of course hyper colored tshirts).

The GB500 was a moderate success in Japan, but in the US sales were hindered by the American love for large engines and dislike of the fairly high price tag. Which is why it’s relatively rare bike and has a bit of a cult status.

Here’s a couple of pics of this 80’s classic. The first pic is from an old honda advertisement… Love the birds forming the honda logo.

Honda Monkey 40th Anniversary Edition

These things are big in Japan (well you know what i mean). This limited edition Honda Monkey 40th Anniversary Edition was apparently inspired by a famous japanese anime series called Peach Pit’s Shugo Chara. It costs ¥215,250, which is about $3400 Aus. dollars. Quite a lot for something so small. But they look like a lot of fun. Click on this too see how much fun.
