The Honda motorcycle corp. of Japan released the Honda Express (NC50) to the North American market in 1977. This new bike was designed to enter the large market for scooters that developed following the 1973 oil crisis. As such it came with a fuel-efficient single-cylinder two-stroke engine. It was also designed to be simple to operate, as many owners would be inexperienced with or
intimidated by larger, more complex motorcycles. Honda accomplished this by using a fully automatic transmission and a small oil pump to self-mix the Express's oil and fuel, thus eliminating the need for premixing.

The sister bike to the Honda CB450, the CL450 is the dual sport or "scrambler" model of Honda's 444cc DOHC parallel twin engined motorcycle. Although the difference between both models are mostly cosmetic, the CL450's higher pipes, knobby tires, and aggressive styling were better suited for off-road riding.

Redesigned, refinished, and completely gone through, this super slick bike will make one lucky owner a very happy person. Unlike some of those other cafe racers that look like modern bikes with classic lines, this beauty looks like a real classic with modern touches that has been very well cared for. With brand new rubber, race shifting pattern, and weighing in at only 357 lbs wet, you will be doing the ‘ton’ in no time flat. Not only that, but with upgraded suspension, tires, and brakes you’ll finally be able to carve those corners and slow down too! Featured on BikeEXIF.com and Third Place winner at Motorado Vintage Bike Show.
