Very, very, very fast Honda C90!Fri, 26 Nov 2010 00:00:00 -0800
Takegawa are a company based on Osaka, Japan. They make so many hop-up parts for small Honda engines that it's possible to build a brand new, complete engine from their catalogue using no Honda parts at all. Four valve heads, double overhead camshaft kits, stroker cranks, big bore Nikasil barrels, slipper pistons, dry clutches, huge carbs and close ratio gear kits are all available. Depends how healthy your credit card is, really.
This video is a prime example of what is achievable from Honda's venerable Cub, particularly when people get carried away. Any guesses what it's revving to? And was that valve bounce or a rev limiter?
