Honda Restores the Very First Car it Brought to America

Honda Restores the Very First Car it Brought to America A Los Angeles Honda specialist stumbled upon this 1967 N600 wearing VIN #001, and now it's headed for the Honda museum. Honda's start in the U.S. was rather inauspicious. With the 1973 fuel crisis was still a few years in the future and big cars with big V8s ruling the road, this diminutive 1967 Honda N600 was an odd duck in America. But now, the first Honda to ever reach U.S. shores is being lovingly restored, as documented in a video series called Serial One. Los Angeles Honda mechanic Tim Mings bought this little green Honda without realizing its provenance.

It may clean up nice, but it isn't afraid to get dirty.

Latest Yamaha Yard Built XSR900 Is A Custom Vision In Blue

Latest Yamaha Yard Built XSR900 Is A Custom Vision In Blue That is a really gorgeous blue. The Yamaha Yard Built line of custom bikes is a great concept, and I don’t know why more bike manufacturers don’t have a program like it. Manufacturers working with custom builders to make the bikes more easily customizable helps everyone. You Too Can Customize:This Custom Bike: Come Get Offended At Terrible Welds With MeReimagined And Amazing: Custom Honda CB1000R The latest entry in this series comes from the garage of JvB-moto, a German outfit founded by Jens vom Brauk, who is known for his minimalistic custom designs.

Everyone has That Bike. You know, the one where as soon as you see it, you’ll stop at nothing to own one someday? That’s the one. Little things like money and rarity are hurdles, but they’re not always insurmountable. After all, many of us honed our optimism about That Thing to a very fine point when we were kids. We learned to maintain some small semblance of calm, since we had to wait until we’d saved enough money to get whichever Thing we’d set our sights on.

Things get a bit more complicated if That Thing is a particularly rare motorbike. First of all, you have to decide why you want it. If you want it simply because it’s rare, that’s entirely different from wanting it because you admire its technical specifications. Johannesburg local Justin Steyn decided that he wanted a Honda RS600—of which there are incredibly few examples still left in the world. So instead, he built a gorgeous replica.

Is This Honda’s First Teaser Of The New 2020 Africa Twin? Yeah, it totally is.

The real RS600, BikeEXIF wrote, was never a production model. It was meant to be a smaller sibling to the RS750, and consisted of a works HRC XR600R engine stuffed inside a Knight Racing frame. If you can find those frames now, they’re quite pricey—so instead, Steyn opted for a 1998 Honda XR600R that he found and then went to work on.

Suspension work, improving the carburetor, and gradually fining down the cosmetic aspects to get it in line with how he thought it should look were Steyn’s main concerns. He wanted to be able to both race it and use it as “a cheeky bread ‘n milk runner,” and you can see that reflected in the final product.

For painstaking details on the build, as well as a selection of gorgeous photos, check out the BikeEXIF writeup. It’s done incredibly well in local races so far, but at least the competition has something nice to look at as Steyn zooms up ahead of them.
