OK, the story goes. I was about 8 and went up to my uncle dan's house. They always had the COOLEST stuff, and he had just gotten a new motorcycle. My dad was a real big rider back in the day and asked if he could take me out. Now I remember this VERY vividly to this day it felt like we were doing 100 but my dad assures me now we only did 30. I kept yelling, how hard am I supposed to hang on dad? And he said, as hard until it starts to hurt!" Dunno why I remember that, Anyways this was my first real experience that sorta, "hooked" me on motorcycles. As my fam and I were lookin through old photo albums, we came along this picture. It would be awesome if we found out what kinda honda this is, so I can find my roots. It may be a shot in the dark, but here we go! I know its a honda lemme try and resize it a lil. The second pic is the front thats cut off

That is a Honda CBX 1000cc I-6 with the Hondaline fairing. The fairing was available on some other models but the tail piece is distinctive to the CB750F, CB900F and the CBX. The gray color scheme with the black stipe down the center of the tank was on the CBX.

My father-in-law has a '74 CB450 (could be a 350 now that I think of it. Yeah, pretty sure it's a 350) and it still runs like a champ. It's also very cool to be able to go for a ride with your father-in-law. Just makes you closer, you know? :)
