1963 Honda CL72 250cc Scrambler

Congratulations to Steve Davenport of Placentia for winning Bike of the Month with his 1963 Honda CL72. Steve's bike nudged out four other favorites for first place.

Steve has owned this 250cc Scrambler since 2005 however it's the same model that he rode when he was 15 around the orange groves of Placentia.

Steve is the second owner of this bike. The previous owner was his neighbor who crashed it in 1967 and never got it rolling again. It took Steve 15 years to talk him out of the bike which was stored in boxes.

Now after a complete restoration in 2005, Steve can once again ride it around what were once the orange groves of Placentia.

See all the pictures in our May Gallery. Thank you Steve for bringing it to the meet.
