You may know about the business alliance between Honda Aircraft and Piper Aircraft that allows Honda to tap into Piper’s dealer network to sell the HondaJet. But did you know that Honda built Super Cubs? Me either. But a recent Twitter post by a Honda spokeswoman
says that a 1959 Honda Super Cub will lead the 120th annual Rose Parade on New Years Day–you know, that big parade that occurs before the 95th annual Rose Bowl Game where Penn State is going to beat USC.
A couple of Google strokes shows me that, alas, the Honda Super Cub is not a Piper knock off, but a motorcycle–the motorcycle that launched Honda’s U.S. presence back in 1959. In fact, the model lives on today as the Honda 50.
So, all you motorcycle aficionados, did you know about the Honda Super Cub and have you ever ridden a vintage one?
