Honda can be said to have introduced motorcycling to the masses in the U.S., with the 1959 introduction of the C100 Super Cub–the world’s best-selling vehicle. The Suber Cub remained in production for 35 years and sold upwards of 30 million units! The 1960s saw the beginning of what was to become a string of over 100 major motorcycle championships worldwide, beginning with Mike “the bike” Hailwood’s twin victories at the Isle of Man in 1961. By 1965, Honda was selling well over a quarter-million motorcycles annually. The Sport 65 (also designated as S65 or CS65), was introduced in 1965 as an “amazing quiet, inexpensive sports bike.” It came in three colors– white, black, and scarlet red; seats are black and white. Serial numbers began with S65-A100001; this bike is S65-E08976.
