Honda Motorcycle Design: Illustrations
So Tycho just got back from the amazing Taico Festival [yes, really] in Nagano, and on our off day in Tokyo I had the pleasure of visiting the Tower Records book store in Shibuya. I cannot stress enough, this place was coffeetable book PARADISE, I walked out of there with slight buyers remorse, that is, until the flight back when the “in flight entertainment” consisted of endless episodes of Everybody Loves Raymond. I digress. Although they didn’t have the one i’ve been looking for for years, Part 1, they did have this second volume of Honda Design drawings from the mid eighties throughout the 2000’s. In this post I featured just a few of the exquisite hand-drawn mockups of some timeless Honda machines.
Just got my CB360 on the road yesterday [with rebuilt Mikuni carbs and CB750 forks], so this seemed like a fitting post for the weekend as I gear up to blast around the Berkshires. Enjoy!

This is classic! How to make money nnloie fast Newsflash: How quick is quick? How much is enough?Lets be realistic here; if anyone know the answer to this, then money and poverty should be things of the past.But still and if you are not careful yourself, you might see red’ anytime soon.I was in your situation last 2 years and guess what? Co-incidentally I was also looking for the same thing how to replace what I own off-line/from my job with some nnloie income.And boy did I slave myself to making websites, blogs, etc.And I started with affiliate marketing.Then I move to resale rights But I confessed; if I knew the things I now know, I won’t be making silly, unprofitable mistake back then.But mistake was made and it was inevitable. I keep making mistakes like program hopping’, and changing concept from Day 1. And I have too little money to show in the end.And I end up looking for a new job. But the passion for making money nnloie from the comfort of my home never die. I’m still looking.And if my answer piss you of because there’s no link to magic money making program’, well, there’s really no magic bullet. There’s no band aids.There are just hard work, research, develop marketing method that works, and rinse and repeat. I should have known. Been there, done that myself.But one thing I never regret starting with. And it has been my core principle for making money nnloie. I list it in my resource.Hope this help.
