I'm sure you are correct, but back in the '70s I was riding a 1974 Honda CB750 K4 with full Vetter fairing, so the H1 felt like an open-rail dragster.Champ87 wrote: ↑Mon Oct 28, 2019 2:42 pmIf you rode one of those triples now you'd probably wonder what the fuss was about. I have an H1E that I'm rebuilding (slowly). When it's done the only fear will come from the terrible handling, weedy brake(s) and appalling gas mileage. One thing in it's favor - it will remind me how far things have progressed.danham wrote: ↑Sun Oct 27, 2019 7:50 pmLove Kevin's writing, especially when he reminisces about the old days and the H1s at Arlington (MA) Motorsports. A friend bought a 750 triple from them and had them put on a beefy Barnet clutch and some pipes and riding that bike left me with indelible fear and soiled undies.
I recall experimenting with cracking the throttle abruptly in top gear at about 90 mph and suddenly seeing the sky as the front wheel lofted.
