A Brand New Honda Cub for $245! (in 1965, that is)

That kid looking out the back window could have been me. I was 8 years old in 1965. In recent years I bought one of those hitch-mounted motorcycle carriers for hauling around my Super Cub, but it just didn't work: the suspension on my Outback wagon couldn't handle the weight. I guess I could have installed stiffer shocks, but I decided to go with a trailer instead, which worked fine.
