YOU’D HAVE to adore Honda and ev­ery­thing they did to get through this with­out a wry smile. Yes, Soichiro Honda was as close as any in­dus­tri­al­ist has come to ge­nius. Yes, they made some great bikes. They also made some right hor­rors. Be­ing a glossy ad­vert for Dave Sil­ver’s mu­seum (and parts busi­ness) it’s no warts-and-all as­sess­ment of Honda’s out­put, yet makes a de­cent his­tor­i­cal source book – and to its credit doesn’t skirt Honda’s near collapse in 1954. If you wear a 1976 yel­low and green Hon­dastyle jacket, you’ll love this book. At £12 (or £25 lim­ited edi­tion hard­back)
