Honda S600 Emerges from the Ashes
We’ve mentioned before we’re fans of early Honda engineering, especially when it comes to their chain-driven, 10k RPM-revving, motorcycle-on-wheels S600 of the mid-sixties.
This week’s Forum Report focuses on a ground-up, frame-up restoration of one of these miniaturized marvels, from its roller-bearing, 600 CC, twincam heart to its insane rear drive trailing arm/chain drive units. S600s are rare even in their most common configurations, but this one is a particularly special coupe, which represented about 1/6th of total production with only 1,800 ever built—furthermore the pretty medium shade of blue it wears is also quite an uncommon factory color. The Australian owner/restorer documents a lot of fascinating detail into his posts, with decent, large-format photos as well—it’s a great read, and we know you’ll enjoy it, too.
