Soichiro's boy next to a Honda Dream

o0974061414652408786

I found this pictire on this website and the machine translation is as follows:

Cute boy rider of 1953. This is an advertisement for Dream 3E. Isn't this the root of Honda (provisional)? And this boy, I heard from Mr. Asakura of Honda 100 Stock Company before about the information with Mr. Soichiro Honda's second son, Katsuhisa. That means Honda is a child of Mr. Honda ... I can cry. (If it's true ...)

1953年のかわいい少年ライダー。
ドリーム 3Eの広告です。
これが、ホンダ君(仮)のルーツではないでしょうか。
そして、この少年こそ本田宗一郎さんの次男坊・勝久さんとの情報を以前、ホンダ100株会の浅倉さんからお聞きしました。
ということは、ホンダ(仮)君は、本田さんの子ども・・・
泣ける。(もし事実なら・・・)

Why saving everything?

I'm going to repeat myself but here's a good reason; While I make a copy of many sources, I always try to mention the source where I got it from once I post it here. Well, right now I am working on processing some of that archive and this is what the source of this archive says:

The 350th post in the advert library!

I've reached the 350th post on 4-stroke.nl, my Honda Advert library. There is still plenty more to come. Like, a few hundred. If you'd like to help out, do drop me a line!

4 stroke nl ss125 1970

Young beautiful and 125cc

“Dig those lamps baby, and to think I used to ride a clapped out banger. I was gettin’ nowhere, but fast. No birds – No nothin’. So I conned the old man for a few quid and set myself rollin’for the HONDA man. Down payment… and away. The goes of me! now who do I meet on my maiden run but Susan? She just flipped dor the big stylish 125. The clean curves that mould into my body. Big powerful 4-stroke twin that takes you away from the mob. And that a sweet sound baby! Come to think of it Susan and HONDA have a lot goin’ for them… That’s why I love the pair of them!”

Documenting all the things

Just added some more data to the dealer's list. A list you can find under Data Archive > Honda Dealers Archive.

Here's the current list. As you can see Belgium is not well documented yet and I have no usable data for Germany still.

Honda Dealer's Address Archive

This page contains addresses of (former) Honda moped and motorcycle dealers in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Ireland. The data comes from advertisements and newspaper articles. The addresses are intended for archival and reference purposes. Don't just go to an address, but first find out if there is still a moped dealer at that address. In some cases this is still the case, but the question is whether they still trade in Honda (parts).
