1966 Honda 450 Black Bomber

My brother told me that his girl

friend’s father was looking to sell

his motorcycle. So before I looked

at the bike, I rented a Yamaha 80

from a Shell gas station to see if I

wanted to be a biker.

I had so much fun on the little

80 I had to see the 450.

2 cylinder, 1 down 3 up 4 speed,

loud, and really good looking,

I bought it for $400.

Got a motorcycle license

endorsement, never did insure

it, and rode it around until I

went into the service. Left it

out for my brother who

consequently let it go swimming

in the Anaheim reservoir.

I loved my Vette, but this bike was awesome.

Started my love of motorcycles.
