Fifty years and 60 million Honda Super Cubs

Here's a link to an article on the Web Bike World (motorcycle) site trumpeting the 50th anniversary of the Honda 50cc Super Cub. In the early '60s, the "nifty, thrifty" Honda 50 made motorcycling cool in the US for the "nicest people" you read about in Honda ads.

If you look at the first one and the 60 millionth one, the family resemblance is inescapable. Fifty million of those tiny bikes and half a century in production. Bravo, Honda!
