Story Synopsis & Highlights:

In the 1950's America motorcycle riders were viewed either as a small subculture of wrench-twisting riding enthusiasts, at best; or outlaw bikers, at worst. In the face of all that, in 1959 Honda began selling their well - built, dependable motorcycles, giving the Cub 50 flagship status. Parents weren't afraid to buy their teenagers a Honda, and indeed, many of the the husbands rode Hondas to the office and the wives rode them to the bridge club. Many a newspaper during the '60s were delivered by 'paperboys' on Honda Sport 50s.
