What to Expect

Update on the CD175 which retained its reliability, was less frugal and had a quick rot chassis that didn’t impress even when brand new. Compared to sixties twins build quality was astonishingly poor, very little of Honda’s famed engineering finesse shining through. In the unlikely event that you find one still on the road, do the owner a favour, put a match in the petrol tank.
