Honda is the world's largest manufacturer of motorcycles as of 1959. The brand carved a niche for itself in the American market during the 60s with the tag line, "You meet the nicest people on a Honda," which directly contrasted many American opinions of motorcyclists. By marketing themselves as a brand for the everyman, Honda was able to compete with American brands like Harley-Davidson. Honda bikes were actually so lucrative that the brand's surprising success continues to be studied by economists.
Honda introduced several motorcycles in the 1970s, including the popular CB500T from the CB series. These were cruising bikes made for road use and mint condition CB500Ts are highly sought after for their unique brown seats. Another popular series that was introduced in the 70s was the GL, or Gold Wing, series. Honda introduced the Gold Win GL1000 at the Cologne Motorcycle Show in Germany and it was extremely well received. The GL series was meant to be a follow-up to the widely successful CB750 superbike which was considered a landmark achievement in the field of motorbikes.
