There have been more Honda Super Cubs made than any other vehicle in the world. And now, thanks to the power of YouTube, you can see one being pieced together in Honda’s Kumamoto factory.
‘Course, the vid doesn’t show all the intricacies of the operation, including initial assembly of the suspension and engine bits. But it’s a cool tribute to one of the most iconic motorcycles ever made. We just wish, that, given the name Super Cub, the video had been narrated in the style of a Sir David Attenborough BBC nature special. It would have made it much more interesting.
This is the 60th year of production for the Super Cub, with 100 million units sold since it hit showrooms in the 1950s.
