1967 Honda C65

The Honda C65 was a 4-stroke 63cc OHC step-through street motorcycle built by Honda. It was introduced in late 1964 and was the first Honda Cub to feature an OHC engine. The C65 used the frame of the existing C100 Cub. (49cc OHV) In 1967 it gained the enclosed front forks, the same as the then-new OHC models C50 and C90. In 1971 it was replaced by the Honda 70, which was identical but with a bigger bore to give a capacity of 72cc. The C65 was sold in Japan and eastern markets, and also Canada from 1967, but never in the UK or USA.
