Honda CD 175 was a 174 cc bike introduced in USA, Canada, UK, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand in 1967. Main features of this bike included 360 degree cranks, a single ignition, single carburetor to cut down maintenance, odd styling, a parallel twin high revving engine and a speedometer that calibrated to 100 mph (160 km/h).

Claimed Top speed was 80 mph (128 km/h) but with a light rider and no head wind it could go faster (people claim to have done 100 mph or 160 km/h which was the maximum calibration on the speedometer). The big end had rollers to ensure a smooth ride at high revs. There were several variations of this bike (namely K3, T, T4 etc)from 1967 to 1979.

This bike offered a relatively quicker ride compared to a cheaper cost (50 miles per gallon) but suffered from weak brakes (being only cable operated single shoe drum brakes) and was not “oil tight”. Also the 6 volt electric system made the lights quite innadequate at any speed over 30 mph on a dark night. In 1979 this model was replaced by Honda CD185.
