Cool vintage Honda Commercial

Washington

I came across this old Honda commercial with Steve McQueen riding a 1972 250 Elsinore.  He was pretty damn smooth. 

 

I think that is part of the movie "On Any Sunday" from 1971.

He is in "On any Sunday" riding with Malcom Smith, but I think that is different footage.

I miss open face helmets & drum brakes.

"for a man's ride". LOL

He really put those 3" of suspension travel through their courses.

I had a '73 Elsinore 125. What great bike that was.

Harvey Mushman himself :thumbsup:

I have never heard anyone miss drum brakes....bareley worked when wet ( which around here was pretty much always) :jawdrop:

He was riding a Husky in "On any Sunday" , the Elsinore wasn't even made yet.

I have never heard anyone miss drum brakes....

I don't by any stretch, stopping my IT400 is a chore on a good day

You pretty much had to be a man to pound woops like that on such sweet suspension :usa: .

I wonder where that aluminum tank is now
