Love the Cub
Surpassing 60 million sales in 2008, 87 million in 2014, and 100 million in 2017, the Super Cub s the most produced motor vehicle in history. The idea for a new 50-cubic-centimetre (3.1 cu in) motorcycle was conceived in 1956, when Honda Motor’s Soichiro Honda and Takeo Fujisawa toured Germany and witnessed the popularity of mopeds and lightweight motorcycles and the rest was history.
The Super Cub’s US advertising campaign, You meet the nicest people on a Honda, had a lasting impact on Honda’s image which is often used as a marketing case study.
But this restoration project of Iron Macchina Customs is different. The feel and aura of this classic machine is timeless, a project that will give a dent to Iron Macchina’s legacy in the custom bike scene.
If there is one motorized vehicle that deserves to be termed as iconic, that has to be Honda’s Super Cub. The small, rugged two-wheeler has been constantly in production since 1958, with numerous variants and offsprings still pouring out from 16 Honda factories in 15 countries. We did a feature back then about the classic Super Cub revival. READ IT HERE.
