History

In October 1946, Soichiro Honda established the Honda Technical Research Institute in Hamamatsu, Japan, to develop and produce small 2-cycle motorbike engines. Two years later, Honda Motor Company, Ltd. was born, and in 1959 Honda opened its first storefront in Los Angeles with six industrious employees.

If you read thru the Hona stuff on the website (and I have) it's a pretty amazing story.

I have read a lot about him & his company.
One of the reasons I ride HONDA.
I really admire that man.

Mr Honda had to do something to return all that radioactive waste back to where it came from after WW2
