Honda set new standards when they introduced the Hawk models. Performance was equal or better than the British 500cc machines, and the quality and reliability quickly convinced enthusiasts that the Japanese invasion would drastically change the motorcycle scene.

As I tried to say in my previous "post" I agree - the 250 scrambler has one of the sweetest sounding exhaust tones I've heard. The 305 Super Hawk is also very nice over 6000 rpm with wide open throttle. Incidentally, the carb throat is so big on the 305 that you *need* to be over 6000 rpm before the engine will accept full throttle without bogging.

OK...if everyone can stand a Super Hawk story: My dad bought a new 250 Hawk in 1965 when I was 13. It hooked me on Honda. In 1970 I bought a used CB 77 that had been used for a trail bike, but it was all I could afford. It had a 42 tooth sprocket on it, and the rear shocks were shot. After changing the sprocket, I rode if from Mobile, AL to prep school in PA, and rebuilt it in "shop" during my senior year. In March of '71 I rode it down to Daytona for bike week, meeting my dad there. I traded it in for almost nothing in '72 for new CB 450. I'll always have warm memories of the Hawks and Super Hawks. It's great to see the restoration jobs.
