HONDA: 1948- Japan – By 1959 Honda was the world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles, although their range was dominated by scooters and light machines. By 1960 Honda was exporting in excess of 168,000 lightweight machines to over 50 countries. The CB72 (and the later CB250/350) was the export breakthrough the company needed – particularly in theUS where there were few lightweight machines available. These technically advanced and reliable machines sold in their thousands and established a reputation for the company’s products which persists to this day. The innovative CB450 was ahit in the UK and the CB750 set Honda on its path of superbike production. Seriously successful in the GPs in the60s with highly advanced multi-cylindered racebikes, Homda continues to dominate much of the road racing scene.

In 1967, he entered into an alliance with Lawil of Italy, which produced a range of microcars sold in France under the names Willam City and Farmer. In 1971, another 125cc prototype was shown but not produced. Instead, Willam imported from Italy the Baldi, Zagato Zele, and later the B.M.A., Decsa and the museum example, the Casalini. Casalini was a maker of mopeds, scooters and trikes, who built the tiny Sulky in 50 or 60cc versions. Unusually for the type, it had all-steel bodywork on a tubular steel frame.
